Now that the kids have everything they need to head back to school, it's time you buy yourself something nice. And I found the perfect way to do so!

On Saturday, August 18 The District will be hosting the Shop Hop Tax-Free weekend at which several downtown Quincy stores will be selling their goods completely tax free. So if you're like me, you'll be leaving the kids (and the hubby) at home and getting a few friends together for a fun day of shopping in The District. All participating shops will be open, at the least, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
