Briarwd xmas shop
Briarwood Christmas Shop 2012 Chairmen Missy Bekken and Joy Williford are preparing for this year’s event.
Briarwood Christmas Shop, a community holiday tradition for more than 20 years, will once again offer a unique Christmas shopping experience. The free event is hosted by Briarwood Christian High School.
The 2012 shop will feature gifts, local artwork, jewelry and accessories, garden décor, wood crafts, monogrammed clothing and items, and home decor exhibited by recognized merchants and talented artisans.
There will be several boutiques for women’s fine clothing. Stationary and paper products can be customized while you wait. Retailers like Remon’s will sell collegiate items like key chains, Southern Tide college shirts and other items popular with men.
Christmas music, door prizes and more fun surprises make for a festive atmosphere at the event. This year they will have a Little Elves Shop for small children to shop with a volunteer helper in a store designed especially for them.
Local and out-of-state vendors include Trunk Treasures, Wow Boutique, Bardin Marsee Publishing, Rusty Rooster, Alpha Bama Letters, Remons, Obsessions, The Silver Zoo, Lily Girl, Paper Antiques and The Sweet Smith.
This year’s committee members for the shop are Missy Bekken, Joy Williford, Destiny Butts and Susan Schaper.
The event runs Thursday, Nov. 8 from noon-8 p.m. and Friday, Nov. 9 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m at the Fellowship Hall at Briarwood Presbyterian Church, located at I-459 on Acton Road.
