East Cambridge Savings Bank Joins Live Local Shopping Hour for Giveaway

East Cambridge Savings Bank is joining Scout this Saturday, May 2 at 10:30 a.m. for Scout’s own Quarantine QVC, Live Local Shopping Hour (and a Half). ECSB  has donated four $50 shopping credits which we’ll be giving away to kick off our inaugural experiment in hyper-local Mother’s Day shopping. 

Powered by Zoom teleconferencing and Localisity’s local-focused online-ordering system, Live Local Shopping Hour (and a Half) will feature 11 vendors from Cambridge and Somerville and  40 curated Mother’s Day gifts for the discerning social distancers on your list.

We all need a little retail therapy these days and there’s no better way to celebrate mom than inspired gifts for some of the neighborhood’s best shops.  

And the best part?  Our vendors receive all the proceeds from sales during the show, so you know that you’re getting great stuff from great neighbors. 

And that’s not all!

Our friends at Forge Baking Co. will be giving away ten (10!) $50 gift certificates to readers that like and share the event on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Gifts for mom, pastries for you. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning. 

Participating vendors include: All She Wrote BooksDavis SquaredMint JulepNomadMagpieShepherd’s Run JewelryTamaryn DesignBall Square Fine WinesThe Boston Shaker, and Joie De Vivre.

Stay tuned for more great local events including our new Benefit Zoom Classes starting Monday, May 4.
