HERE WE COME A-WASSAILING

Friday, Dec. 19, 6 to 9 pm at Mysteryscape

As you mull over your final holiday purchases (or your first if you procrastinate like us), come in from the cold and help yourself to some deliciously hot, spiced cider here at the store. Let us revive your Christmas spirit with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg and apples. No singing required.

This is an open house event and free to the public, as are most events during the Local Life third-Friday art walk in Downtown Overland Park. We'll be offering free cups all evening, so come when you can.

Local Life is organized and sponsored by participating small businesses in Downtown Overland Park. You can shop-hop their terrific events, bargains and food offerings 6 to 9 pm every third Friday of the month.

RELAX AND REJUVINATE!

Saturday, Dec. 20, 11 am to 2 pm at Mysteryscape

If the season is feeling hectic, bring your holiday crazy to Mysteryscape and let our visiting Massage Therapist Phyllis Johnson soothe it away.

For over 20 years, Phyllis has given the weary and tense a heavenly sigh of relief. She's offering our customers a chair massage in our quiet back room. The first five minutes of the massage are free and then one dollar per minute (a maximum of 15 minutes per person).

Treat yourself to a little respite from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. You're worth it!
