20th anniversary is something special and The Shops at Liberty Place pulled out all the stops to celebrate this retailing milestone. The Rotunda at Liberty Place hosted a party full of friends, business peeps and retailers. Hostess Jill Scarlett and her team put together a wonderful event to mark the passing years, with food, fun and spirits.

Did you know that I used to collect photos and post cards of Philadelphia. Now I don’t have time, but the above photos were part of my collection and they depict Liberty One being built. When I heard that the Shops at Liberty Place were celebrating their 20th birthday, I offered the pictures to them. They are now on permanent loan and after a month displayed in the rotunda, they can be found hanging in the management office. Liberty One, the building, celebrated it’s 20 year anniversary in 2007.

Stop by every Monday thru Friday at 12 noon, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm High School Choirs from the Tri-State area will perform holiday favorites through the holidays.Natalie Burke, Koray Avci and Karen Skoglund. I’ve been meaning to tell you about Koray’s store at the Shops of Liberty, Bella Turka. It’s adorable,Koray Avci makes regular journeys to his native Turkey to gather exotic jewelry and cute gifts, like scarves, pillows, throws and bags.
His prices are really reasonable, most below $100, and for the material items like the bags and pillows, below $50 and even lower. Plus he’ll tell you the story of how he found them in Turkey.
