The Winthrop School Holiday Boutique
December 3, 2016
9am to 3pm
The Holiday Boutique is the largest annual fundraiser for our school, and the money raised by this event is invested back into the Winthrop community to provide enhanced educational opportunities for our children..
This year's Holiday Boutique will feature more than 60 Local Vendors offering fabulous gift ideas for the holidays. You can stock up on cookies at the Cookie Walk, bid on some great items at the Silent Auction, and enjoy a scrumptious lunch in our Winthrop Cafe. A favorite with the kids: Children will delight in doing their own holiday shopping with the help of some very eager elves in the Children's Secret Shop where all gifts cost $6 or less.
And of course Santa will be onsite!
Don't miss out on the excitement and spread the word among your friends in the community!
This event is a celebration of food + gifts made by local passionate individuals (we consider them courageous, as well). We’ve procured over 50 deliciously talented makers and have brought them together for a day of tasting + shopping.
Who knew there were so many talented entrepreneurs in our midst? Honestly, we feel like this area has some pretty awesome local businesses. Why not create an event to celebrate them + showcase their goods?! Boom . . . the North Shore Food + Gift Emporium is born.
Come taste + shop from over 50 local food + fine gift makers—even more than last year! Sweet, savory, salty, spicy, crunchy, chewy, colorful, festive, shiny, fragrant, unique . . . you name it, we’ll have it. This event is designed to bring out the fun lovin’ foodie + savvy shopper in everybody.
Hosted at the gorgeous historic Turner Hill mansion in Ipswich, the North Shore Food + Gift Emporium will be the perfect event to get a head start on your—dare we say—holiday shopping. But don’t be dismayed, you’ll easily find something for everyone on your list . . . including something for yourself!
This FREE community event is created by two friends who share a deep love for the North Shore + for local entrepreneurs:
