Step right into the holiday spirit at 188 North Main Street! Not only will you find three magical shops in one location, but you'll also be supporting Feed Branford Kids, a local non-profit helping to feed kids from families in need. The 26th Annual Holiday Open House is hosted by Cynthia’s Flower Shop, the Martha Link Walsh Gallery, and Luckey Redo, and welcomes guest artists Anita Griffith, Bob Parrott, and Susan Roberts. The event takes places on Friday, November 30 (5-8pm) and Saturday, December 1 (10am-4pm).
The free, two-day event features handmade gift items for the holidays including:
Cynthia’s Flower Shop - holiday decorations, hostess and business gifts, fun and festive flowers, and vintage ornaments
Martha Link Walsh Gallery - original paper cuttings, handcut ornaments, decorative cheese boards and luminaries, holiday cards, the 2019 papercut calendar, and the new book Stories of Christmas.
Luckey ReDo - original hand knits & up-cycled, re-imagined one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for women
& Bob Parrott - handcrafted pottery
Susan Roberts Jewelry - distinctly feminine jewelry pieces that combine organic elegance with a posh, urban flair
A percentage of the sales from the event will be donated to Feed Branford Kids, a grass roots organization operating under the Branford Food Bank that works to ensure all Branford kids have food on weekends. It is 100% volunteer run and is supported solely by monitory and food donations.
The Holiday Open House is free and open to the public. Guests can enjoy refreshments provided by Take the Cake (Guilford) and special surprises all weekend! The event takes place at 188 North Main Street in Branford. For more information, contact: Martha Link Walsh, marthalinkwalsh.com, (203) 481-3505.
