Annual Winter Holiday Gift Show
Find something for everyone on your holiday shopping list at The Community House's annual Winter Holiday Gift Show. This year's show features 50 unique vendors from around southeastern Michigan.
"We are more excited this year about our line-up of vendors over last year, and we didn't think that was possible," said Meg Ferron, co-chair of the Winter Holiday Gift Show. "Our vendors will be offering everything from one of a kind jewelry, florals, boutique clothing, specialty foods, soaps, children’s books, toys and clothing, unique Christmas ornaments and more! With so many of the local holiday shows and bazaars a thing of the past, we have strived to make this a holiday shopping destination."
Winter Holiday Gift Show attendees can make a day of it by visiting the show and enjoying lunch at the Winter Holiday Gift Show Café. The Café will feature gourmet sandwiches, salads, soups and a variety of desserts, for purchase.
There will also be a special preview party (tickets are $45) from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 15. According to Diana Day, co-chair of the preview party, the evening will be a fun night of fabulous shopping, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails.
“We invite everyone to get a jump on their holiday shopping while enjoying an evening out with good friends," said Diana.
Presenting Sponsor for The Winter Holiday Gift Show is Kathy Broock Ballard of Max Broock Realtors.
