Shop Small & Holiday Auction

November 30th - 15th, 2019

This is your page for information on all the fun events happening this holiday season! Look at the calendar below for details.

 

How the Holiday Auction works:
— Shoppers visit participating businesses from November 30, 2019, (Small Business Saturday) through the start of the actual Holiday Auction event on December 15.
— Shoppers save their receipts during that two-week time period and then bring them to the Holiday Auction on December 15. Our volunteers will give the shoppers “voucher money” that equals the money they spent.
— Shoppers use the “voucher money” to bid on auction items that have been donated by participating businesses. Those auction items have values between $50 and $100!
