Is it just us or does it seem like the holiday shopping list gets longer every year? There are hostess gifts, teacher gifts, gifts for your friends, spouse, kids, the dog. It’s enough to make you long for the doldrums of January. But a long-standing tradition in town makes the holiday shopping experience—dare we say it—fun and festive. It’s the holiday boutique.
At these pop-up shopping experiences, hundreds of vendors set up their wares. You’ll find everything from fun jewelry and home décor to toys and fashion for women, kids and guys. And since most vendors are independent shops, the offerings are as unique and creative as the personalities on your list. And here’s the best part—a portion of the proceeds from every sale benefits the host charity. Now come on, what’s not to love? Mark your calendar for these upcoming events. You can thank us on December 26.
