Its not secret that St Augustine shops are not hard to find in the historic and uptown districts! A local group got together a few years back and decided that shopping locally was the way to go for the holidays! The Holly Jolly Shopping Spree was created and definitely a success!
This event is coming up this weekend and still has room if you happen to be in town. Here are the details and a way to hit all of St Augustine Shops (some of the best) in one day all on a fun getaway sure to kickstart your holiday spirit!
Here are the details on the Annual Holly Jolly Shopping Spree!
Patronize St Augustine shops for the holidays! Ride a trolley to Uptown shops, be jolly, and really save!
Now that summer is over and cooler winds prevail, our eyes turn to football, décor, and our favorite recipes. At season’s end comes Thanksgiving, colder weather and the enchanting noels of Christmas. For those savvy planners who want a head start on holiday shopping—a chance to find thoughtful gifts and seasonal clothing—Holly Jolly Shopping Spree is a unique event just for you.
The eighth annual shopping spree will be held on Saturday, November 18 between 9a. and 4p. Gifts, holiday decorations, and other special treasures will be there for the picking. It is also an opportunity to support local Uptown businesses who so generously support the St Augustine community.
After mingling and sipping, catch a sightseeing trolley (Old Town Trolley Tours) for a journey designed specially for you—a whirlwind shop-a-thon that meanders along San Marco Avenue, with silent auction items and photo booth along the way. The lunch this year will be held at Raintree Restaurant, where you will be served a tasty lunch and have a chance to win raffle prizes.
The ticket price is only $45. The cost includes a trolley ride, lunch, special discounts and offers from Uptown retailers, and donation to the selected beneficiary. Shoppers will vote on the beneficiary during brunch. The selected beneficiary will be announced and posted via social media at 3p on the day of the spree.
Participants park for free and meet between 9 and 10 at Old Town Trolley Tours, 167 San Marco Avenue, St. Augustine, Florida.
The event is limited to just 300 guests but still has room, so be sure to grab your tickets soon!
Tickets and more information can be accessed here on the official website for the event!
Stay with us at the Agustin Inn and be a part of all the fun this weekend!
