Local merchants unite to offer sales, raffles, and prizes for shoppers on Nov. 29
November 10, 2014 (Tampa, FL) –The business community of Seminole Heights in Tampa urges everyone to shop at locally-owned businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 29, as part of the 2ND Annual Holiday Shop Hop, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., in observance of Small Business Saturday.
The Shop Hop will include numerous local businesses participating in a fun-filled day of sales, raffles, and prizes. Shoppers visiting local shops will get a “Shop Hop Passport,” which must be stamped by at least 6 of the 12 participating businesses to be entered to win fabulous gifts. The winners will be announced at 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Open House at Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, 5135 N. Florida Ave., Tampa.
“The holidays are a perfect time to reflect on how shopping local has a direct impact on our community,” said Elizabeth Graham, owner of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa. “It’s a great time to celebrate the service and unique selection of small shops, as we give thanks and give gifts this year.”
A dozen local businesses will be offering special discounts to celebrate the Shop Hop, making it a great time for a head start on holiday shopping. In addition to Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, participants include Cleanse Apothecary, Frolic Exchange, Christopher Wayne Home, Helath Mutt, Bali Bay Trading Company, Phoenix Glass Studio, A Modern Line, Sherry’s YesterDAZE Vintage Clothing & Antiques, D&D Antiques and More, Figure 8 Art Supplies, and Vélo Champ Cycle Sport.
Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association is also an event sponsor. Located just north of downtown Tampa, Old Seminole Heights’ boundaries are Live Oaks Square to the east, Hillsborough River to the west and north, Sulphur Springs to the north, and Hillsborough Ave. to the south. Old Seminole Heights is a tree-shaded gem nestled in the heart of Tampa, providing tranquil relief from the heavily-trafficked thoroughfares that border the neighborhood. Many of the bungalows and restored homes date back to the early 1900s. Some of these homes are included in our National Register and local Historic Districts to ensure their preservation for generations to come. The neighborhood continues to grow and attract new residents of all ages and diverse cultural backgrounds with its beautiful homes and thriving business community.
