Holiday Shopping Night
Forget Black Friday. Think instead Green Monday, November 30, the date of the Refuge Nature Store’s eighth annual Holiday Shopping Night 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.
The store will serve refreshments. Shoppers who spend more than $20 get a free gift.
“All profits from Nature Store purchases go directly to benefiting wildlife and conservation,” said Store Manager Ann-Marie Wildman. “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, local artisan wares, 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.
