Private Shopping at Thistle & Bess

Thistle & Bess is scheduling private shopping parties for unique and safe 2020 holiday shopping with a safe, socially distanced, after-hours shopping experience. Patrons can draw for a discount at checkout to receive anywhere from 15 percent to 50 percent off of their total purchase.

        This is going to be an unusual holiday season, to say the least. Get together with a few friends, check holiday shopping lists off and support a local business. Private shopping parties for four to six are one-hour long and offered on Thursday evenings after the store closes. Masks must be worn while shopping, which sadly, means no treats or drinks.

        Thistle & Bess brings a smart, vintage flare to the Ann Arbor area, offering one-of-a-kind antique treasures, along with well-curated goods, to the stylish hostess seeking a luxurious lifestyle. 


$50 deposit required to hold the shopping time. Location: 222 N. 4th Ave., in Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown. There is metered parking nearby at both the Kerrytown Market and Shops and in the farmers’ market lot. The closest parking structure is located at the corner of 4th Ave. and Washington.
