Comments Off on Page One Customer Appreciation Day: April 27

Page One Bookstore  is throwing a Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday April 27 with hot dogs, cake, and a book deal. I believe this coincides with the bookstore’s anniversary too… I reckon they’re 32 years old in Albuquerque this year!

As a writer and avid reader I’m especially keen to support our independent bookstores, and this is a very good time to be supporting Page One… especially when you can save money too. They’ve just won Best of Burque for the bookstore category.

The Page One Customer Appreciation Day  on Saturday April 27,  2013, promises free hot dogs and cake from 12 noon to 6 pm, while supplies last. According to an email, they’re also offering a deal on books all day: Buy 3 books and you get one free.

At 3 pm, during the celebration party, author Christine Barber will be reading from and signing copies of her new book: When the Devil Doesn’t Show. Barber is a former recipient of the Tony Hillerman Prize for a mystery novel.

You can also print out this Page One $5 Off Coupon to save $5 on any $30 or more purchase, whether new or used.  It’s valid till April 30, so take it along if you’re going to the birthday party! For ABQ on the Cheap readers with a smart phone or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to print this coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to get the $5 discount.

That gives you plenty of excuses to go and be appreciated!

Looking ahead, I also notice that May 4 offers a sale on all Star Wars items for fans of the Star Wars movies. (And who isn’t?) On May 4, Page One will give a 20% discount on all Star Wars merchandise, including the cookbooks, Lego sets, the Thrawn trilogy, and whatever other Star Wars themed stuff they have in stock.

ABQ Folk Festival: 2 for the Price of 1 Ticket Deal, or Get $5 Off, plus Free Camping

April 23, 2013 by  
Filed under Art & Entertainment, Kids, Live Performances, Music

You won’t want to miss the 2013 Albuquerque Folk Festival on Saturday June 1, and you won’t want to miss these advance ticket discounts either…

Right now you can get 2 adult tickets for $15 in a limited time deal at this link via Living Social – the regular adult ticket price is $20 each if you wait to buy on the day, or $15 each in advance. I’m not sure how long this BOGO offer runs, or if there’s any cap on the ticket quantity.

Then gather up the family to enjoy fabulous folk music and dance at the Albuquerque Folk Festival on Saturday June 1, 2013.  The festival runs from all day from 10 am to 11 pm at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, with performances on three stages, music and dance workshops, lots of great stuff for kids, and jam sessions for all.

Albuquerque Folk Festival tickets cost $20 for adults on the gate.  BUT if you miss the BOGO offer to get 2 adult tickets for $15 via Living Social (only available at the link, not from the festival itself), you can still save $5 on adult tickets simply by purchasing tickets in advance from the music shop locations listed at the festival’s website. That brings the adult ticket price down to $15 per person, which is still a pretty good deal for a full day of entertainment.

Plus you can camp free of charge on the Balloon Museum grounds, with admission to start camping from Friday May 31 at 3 pm, and you don’t have to decamp until Sunday at 2 pm. That means you can make a weekend of it, and join in the jamming on Friday and Saturday nights! Camping is available for tents and RVs, see the info at the website.

Other ticket prices for the festival:

  • $5 for kid’s tickets for ages 12-18, and the festival is totally free for children aged 11 and under.
  • $15 for seniors (65+), students aged 18-25, and military spouses.
  • $5 for active duty military
    For all the reduced rate tickets, take your ID!  There’s no advance purchase discount for these, only for adult tickets.

This year’s folky fun includes:

  • A slate of first-rate folk music performances including Le Chat Lunatique, Squash Blossom Boys, Zoltan Orkestar and many more.
  • Storytelling, giant puppets and a children’s tent with dance, music, and games
  • Music workshops from ABCs of Banjo, to Build a Washtub Bass, to Celtic Singers
  • Jamming  and a band scramble (take your instrument – there’s a free instrument check room to leave it when you’re not playing)
  • Dance workshops from contra dance, to Scottish country dance, to belly dancing with a veil (I never go anywhere without my veil!)
  • Food vendors, and they usually have folk and musical items for sale too
  • A barn dance

Albuquerque Folk Festival offers far more activities than we can possibly mention, so check out their site to see all the options for this great family-friendly event.

Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is located at 9201 Balloon Museum NE

Page One $5 Off Coupon and Free Events

Comments Off on Page One $5 Off Coupon and Free Events

Book Coupon Page OneAs a writer and avid reader I’m always keen to support Albuquerque’s locally-owned independent bookstores and their initiatives to encourage people to read more. Especially when we save money too!

Print out this Page One coupon to save $5 on any $30 purchase until November 30, 2012, whether it’s a new or used item.  It could come in handy if you’re shopping for yourself, or if you’re starting your holiday gift shopping.

For ABQ on the Cheap readers with a smart phone, iPad, or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to use the Page One printable coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to the cashier to get the $5 discount.

Page One runs a Self-Published and Local Albuquerque Author Fair on the first Saturday of each month from 3 pm to 5 pm, with local authors selling their books, so that’s a good opportunity to turn up and learn more about some Albuquerque writers.

This Saturday November 10 at 3pm, local author Paul Christman discusses his novel The Purple Runner, originally published in 1983 and now in its second edition printing. Apparently it’s reputed to be one of the top 10 novels about running, but what would I know? The only thing I run for is the phone. Christman was the editor of Running Stats, and has written for Running Times, Marathon & Beyond, Athletics Weekly, and the Santa Fe Reporter. So if you’re into running and reading (not necessarily at the same time) it sounds like he’s your man.

Page One also holds the Adobe Walls Open Mic Night & Poetry Reading on the second Tuesday evening of each month, starting at 7 pm (sign up for the open mic from 6:45 pm). The event is (of course) free, and on Tuesday November 13, the 30-minute open mic hosted by Kenneth P. Gurney is followed by a reading by Jim Nye, a military man and the author of After Shock: Poems and Prose from the Vietnam War,  so it’s apt timing following Veterans Day.

Comments Off on Pharmaca $5 Off Coupon

Love Pharmaca coupons? So do we.  This one is nicely timed for last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts, valid until February 14, 2012.

If you’re looking for natural beauty products, eco home products, or homeopathic remedies, use this printable Pharmaca coupon in store to get $5 off a $50 purchase, valid through February 14.  The coupon can’t be used for online purchases, nor for prescriptions, services, newspapers, and gift cards.

I also notice Pharmaca has a sale for:

  • 20% off Dr Hauschka bath, body, and hair products including some gift sets and beauty
  • 25% off all Tru Melange scented candles
  • 25% off Sweet Dreams wraps and pillows in mint and lavender scents (in-store only).

According to an email, those sale discounts are good to February 28, 2012. But as these would also make great Valentine’s gifts, you might want to waft along to Pharmaca earlier!

If you’ve never shopped Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, they sell:

  • Beauty essentials, natural cosmetics, and skin care including Dr Hauschka, Jane Iredale, Juice Beauty, Kiss My Face, Burts Bees, Avalon, Jurlique, Alba, and more.
  • Fragrances and aromatherapy products
  • Vitamins, supplements, herbal medicine
  • Natural and organic baby products
  • Eco-friendly home products, candles….

….and quite a lot more. I could spend hours in there. 

If you sign up at the website for the Pharmaca email newsletter, they send coupons and discounts (like these ones) that do not appear on their website.

The Albuquerque Pharmaca location is at 8910 Holly Ave NE.
