CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- During the NoDa gallery crawl on Friday, Nov. 5, you may notice a common fashion statement among crawlers: temporary Charlotte on the Cheap tattoos.

Crawlers who have a Charlotte on the Cheap tattoo (available in front of Pura Vida Worldly Art, at 3202-a North Davidson Street) on their bodies will receive discounts or freebies at eleven NoDa businesses.

Participating businesses are:

Ruby’s Gift, 3204 North Davidson Street. Handcrafted jewelry, as well as art and some items imported from Spain. 15% off a purchase of at least $50.

Pura Vida Worldly Art: 3202-a North Davidson Street: Pura Vida’s new location is beautiful! Check out the multicultural children’s books and the large collection of singing bowls. $2 off a purchase, minimum $5.

Crepe Cellar, 3116 North Davidson Street: Sweet and savory crepes. Delicious! $5 off gift certificate of at least $30, to be used at a later date.

Growler’s Pourhouse, 3120 North Davidson Street. Owned by the same folks who own the Crepe Cellar. New on the block. $5 off gift certificate of at least $30, to be used at a later date.

Custom, 3206 North Davidson Street. Another new kid on the block, Custom’s handmade jewelry is just gorgeous and unique. They specialize in custom jewelry, but also have quite a bit in their showcase, available for purchase. $5 off purchase of at least $20

Yarn House, 3205 North Davidson Street. This is not your mama’s yarn shop! Or maybe it is if your mama is very cool. I guarantee that if you’re a knitter you’ll find something you can’t live without. $5 off $30 gift certificate

Peddler’s Post, 2320 North Davidson Street. Another NoDa newbie. Bet you haven’t checked them out yet. They’re in the big brick building at 27th and Davidson. Various vendors offer children’s items, jewelry, antiques, and more. Sounds like a good place for gift shopping. 10% off your purchase.

Dog Bar, 3307 North Davidson Street. Enjoy a drink while your dog chills out with you. $15 for a $25 gift certificate, to be used at a later date.

Dolce Vita Wine Bar, 3205 North Davidson Street. This wine bar isn’t just for wine anymore. Their chef is dishing up some pretty divine looking dishes. Cheap Treat deal to be announced soon!

Amelie’s, 2424 North Davidson Street. I’m not sure what their cheap treat will be, but last month they gave away sample size salted caramel brownies!

Green Rice Galleries, 451 E 36th Street. If you’re crawling galleries, you’re certainly going to stop in at Green Rice Galleries. Right now you can see Jason Basden’s work. His sculptures are so amazing, full of whimsy and fantasy. Green Rice’s Cheap Treat Crawl deal is for Basden’s work. The discount will be as follows: $5 off of any purchase of $20 or more, $10 off of any purchase of $50 or more, and $15 off of any purchase of $100 or more.
