Happy Hour Holiday Shopping
Forget Black Friday. Think instead Green Wednesday, November 29, the date of the Refuge Nature Store’s third annual Happy Hour Holiday Shopping event in the “Ding” Darling Visitor & Education Center. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge will keep the store open two extra hours after the center closes, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Refuge Nature Store has stocked special holiday gift items for the event, and it will have gift consultants ready with suggestions and free recycled paper gift-wrapping. Local artisans will also be on hand for meet-and-greet.
The store will serve wine and cheese for the event. Shoppers who spend more than $20 get a free gift.
“All proceeds from Nature Store purchases go directly to benefiting wildlife and conservation,” said store manager Jeanne Walsh. “This has been a fun way to get everyone into the holiday spirit with an altruistic twist.”
The Refuge Nature Store carries a complete line of birding and nature books for adults and kids, wildlife toys and games, holiday ornaments, gifts made from recycled materials, nature-themed jewelry and home décor, logo T-shirts and hats, and a wide variety of stocking stuffers and other gifts for men, women, and children.
