At the risk of sounding like a grinch, it’s sometimes hard to stay in the present when you’re out shopping for holiday presents. The traffic. The lines. The overpriced mall food — and the attitude.
Fortunately, we have a holiday treat. On December 2, CultureMap is gifting you with the ultimate holiday shopping experience. The CultureMap Holiday Pop-up Shop, sponsored by Verizon, is a curated holiday boutique featuring 25 of our favorite local retailers for men, women, kids, pets, jewelry, gifts, home, and gourmet food and beverages.
To get you in that shopping spirit, you can sip on cocktails and nosh on festive food while you shop. Expect to be serenaded by carolers (no piped-in mall music here) and be sure to stop at the special crafting stations.
Speaking of crafts, don’t miss your chance to conjure up your own holiday gifts. You can create your own succulent arrangement, with the help of a Succulent Bar specialist. Or, design your own 8-ounce soy-wax candle with signature custom fragrances. (Both workshops are $35 each and fill up fast; sign up today.)
Think of this as your chance to actually relax and enjoy your holiday shopping, while the luxe and unique retailers set up shop for you. General admission tickets are only $10 in advance, plus, to make sure we send good tidings to all, the event benefits Kids' Meals.
Here are some of the exciting vendors you can expect:
- Ammos & Sea
- Annie Digs
- Beautifully Bronzed
