The 11th annual Holiday Shoppe is now over. The Shoppe, with its 100 vendors ― artisans, hand-crafters, and retail ventures, new and returning to the Shoppe – proved to be the best Shoppe yet in attendance and money raised for need-based scholarships and community outreach. Customers were quite pleased in the selection, which included jewelry, home décor, specialty and gift items, clothing, accessories and delicious foods. And vendors were happy with the Shoppe, as well.
"Holiday Shoppe was a fantastic experience," said vendor Susan Hedgepeth, owner of Pea Pod Paper & Gifts. "I loved networking with the other small business owners and reaching such a diverse group of customers. The Holiday Shoppe staff and volunteers were incredibly helpful, and I am already looking forward to next year!"
First-time vendor Sara Joyce of A Paper Forest said, "I was so impressed at how well everything was run and how nice and helpful everyone was! Everything looked so festive, and there were a lot of great vendors with quality products. I definitely hope to be back next year!"
The Holiday Shoppe is a FREE event that is open to the public.
