Sales, raffles, and prizes for local business shoppers on Nov. 28 in Tampa
November 5, 2015 (Tampa, FL) –The growing community of Seminole Heights invites shoppers to visit its unique, local businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., as part of its 3rd Annual Holiday Shop Hop to celebrate Small Business Saturday.
The 2015 Holiday Shop Hop will include over a dozen locally owned businesses offering sales, raffles, and prizes. Similar to past years, shoppers will enter to win fabulous gifts by visiting at least six participating businesses and getting their “Shop Hop Passport” stamped. 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.
Independent merchants participating in Shop Hop include A Modern Line, Bali Bay Trading Company, Christopher Wayne Home, Cleanse Apothecary, D&D Antiques and More, Figure 8 Art Supplies, Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, Frolic Exchange, Health Mutt, Phoenix Glass Studio, Sherry’s YesterDAZE Vintage Clothing & Antiques, The Disco Dolls, and Vintage Post Marketplace.
“In addition to celebrating the character and quaintness of our neighborhood this holiday season, shopping locally can have a positive impact economically,” said Elizabeth Graham, owner of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa. “As opposed to sending dollars to some far-away corporate headquarters, local businesses recirculate your money back into the local economy by hiring locally, purchasing locally, paying local taxes, and contributing to charities that matter in Tampa.”
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.
