Hawken House Christmas Market - Expired Event
|Location||Rolling Ridge Nursery
60 N Gore Ave
St Louis, MO 63119
|Description:||Featuring quality handmade arts and crafts|
We are excited that the 2013 Hawken House Christmas Market will be held this year at Rolling Ridge Nursery AND that we will be a part of the annual Webster Groves Christmas Open House.
The Webster Groves Christmas Open House has been a tradition in our community for over 25 years. It takes place on the second Sunday in November, and draws thousands of visitors every year from all around the Greater St. Louis area. This event is sponsored by the WG Trade Association, and many participating shops and businesses in historic downtown Webster Groves are open that day. There are refreshments in the stores, strolling carolers, Santa Claus, carriage rides, and a trolley to transport visitors around town.
Being at Rolling Ridge Nursery will place our Christmas Market right in the heart of the action. Rolling Ridge has been one of the St. Louis area's premier nurseries / garden centers for over 50 years. The same family has owned and operated a business here since 1894, and the original stable built on this site is still visible. Rolling Ridges Christmas store dates back to 1960, when they first began offering wreaths and holly to their customers. No visit to the Christmas Open House is complete without stopping at Rolling Ridge, where everyone can get a free sapling fir tree and refreshments. The Webster Groves Historical Society is proud to be hosted by Rolling Ridge for this event and we feel that it is an outstanding opportunity for all of you artists and crafters.
We have been offered the entire floor space of the greenhouse, plus several outdoor areas. The spacious, state-of-the-art greenhouse space is comparable, size wise, to last years venue at the Masonic Lodge, so we anticipate setting up approximately the same number of booths in that area. In addition, we will be able to use two large outdoor areas -- one is located along the front of the building, and the other is along the side where vendors may set up their own individual tents. (And of course outdoor booths come with our famous money-back guarantee in case of inclement weather!)
Good lighting is always an issue, and being in a greenhouse, let me assure you that this area is bright even on cloudy days. We do have the option to offer electricity to a limited number of booths.
Unloading will be greatly simplified as there is a large entry way on the same level as the greenhouse. And, you can set up inside (greenhouse) booths on Saturday afternoon.
Ample parking is available, including a lot about a 1/4 block away for vendors to park in after they have completed unloading their vehicles.
As a participant in the Webster Groves Christmas Open House, we will be included in all of their advertising. Additionally, we will be on the Rolling Ridge website (www.rollingridgenursery.com), featured in their newsletter AND on Jim McMillan's popular weekly radio broadcast, the Inside/Out Show, Saturday mornings, 11am to 1pm, on 550 KTRS.
