3-Day Shopping Event
Those looking for special bargains and unique holiday gift items will have the perfect opportunity during a 3-day shopping mart planned for November 14-16, in Brownsville, Tenn. “Holiday in Haywood” will feature over 20 retail and specialty merchants all under one roof and offering a variety of items perfect for your holiday gift giving. The event will take place at the Wyatt-Duke National Guard Armory located at 221 Morgan Street.
“The response from retailers has been wonderful,” says Monica Bivens, coordinator of the event. “And we are very confident in the variety and quality of the items that will be available.”
Among the many items for sale will be collectibles, floral arrangements, designer clothing and accessories, fabrics, home décor and accessories, specialty sauces and homemade food items, woodcarvings and hand-blown glass. There will also be a large selection of personalized gift items available.
“Last year over 1,000 people came through the doors during the three day event,” explains Bivens. “This year we’ve extended the hours to allow even more time for shoppers to browse and make their selections.”
Doors will open Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and again on Sunday from 1-4 p.m., giving shoppers plenty of time to make their choices. Santa will make a special appearance on Saturday to give the children a chance to visit and have their picture taken. All proceeds from Pictures with Santa will benefit the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
