A community favorite, our Kids Only Holiday Shop allows children ages 4-10 to conduct holiday shopping without mom or dad!  Santa’s Helpers will escort your child through the boutique, visiting local vendors and talented artisans who feature items all $10 and under (and that includes tax). Give your kids the gift of independence and let them experience the joy of giving. Wonder Wrappers will be on hand to make sure each purchase is wrapped and ready for under-the-tree.

  • Please have your child bring a gift list indicating each person for whom they are to buy a gift and how much to spend on each individual.

  • We request the shoppers bring cash only in small bills for payment in a zip lock bag.

  • All items will be priced at $10 or less and that’s including tax.

  • 2-3pm is our sensory hour for kids with sensory needs

  • masks are required while inside the building
