Holiday Shopping Extravaganza On Dec. 2

On Sunday, Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., the Players Club in Wellington will be the site of the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza. With a little holiday magic, both floors of Players Club will be transformed into a unique, one-day holiday boutique, with more than 40 juried vendors on hand, displaying their merchandise and helping shoppers to fulfill their holiday shopping list.

There will be gorgeous jewelry, fabulous purses, chic clothing, beautiful home décor, stylish shoes, tasty treats — even presents for your pooch.

“We will fill both floors of Players Club with vendors offering a wide range of items for the shoppers to choose from,” said Maureen Gross of Phelps Media Group. “We will have something for everyone on your holiday shopping list, whether they have been naughty or nice!”

This great shopping event is also designed to be a community fundraiser. “Instead of our normal, monthly Girls Night Out event where we have a night of shopping and we raise money for a local charity, we decided to change it a little in December,” said Dolores Schlick, Players Club catering manager. “We are having an all-day, holiday shopping event, and instead of raising money for a charity, we are gathering toys for the kids in town.”

There is no charge to attend the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza, but everyone who comes is asked to bring an unwrapped children’s toy. The collected toys will be donated to Wellington’s annual holiday toy drive and will be distributed to children in the local community for the holidays.

Additional activities are planned during the day, adding to the festive atmosphere of this “winter wonderland.” The Players Club will be decorated for the holidays, complete with a snow-making machine and a possible visit from Santa himself. And, shoppers can enjoy holiday music as they meander through the vendors’ displays. But with all of this shopping, they might work up a thirst or appetite. Outside on the patio, shoppers can sit down, relax and enjoy a barbecue lunch and holiday beverage with friends, too.

“We are hoping that people come to the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza at Players Club and get into the holiday spirit with us,” Gross said. “People can join us on this first weekend of December and not only make a big dent in their holiday shopping gift list, but they can help us to make the holidays brighter for kids here in town!”
