Kids Only Holiday Shop Wednesday, December 6

Kids Only Holiday Shop


A community favorite, our Kids Only Holiday Shop allows children ages 4-10 to shop for their loved ones without mom or dad! Santa’s Helpers/Elves (high schoolers) will escort your child through the boutique, visiting local vendors and talented artisans who feature items $10 and under (and that includes tax). Elves will help your little one manage their money and purchases. Give your kids the gift of independence and let them experience the joy of giving by signing up to shop! 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 and how much to spend on each individual.

  • keep gift lists to 8 people max

  • shoppers should bring cash only in small bills for payment in a zip lock bag.

  • All items will be priced $10 or less (including tax).

  • 2:30-3:00 pm is special shopping time for kids with sensory needs only!

  • 3:00-6 pm regular shopping hours


If you are interested in being a vendor for this event, please contact Ann Wildman at ann@gortoncenter.org
Space is limited and vendors must be approved.

Please note: While your little ones shop, parents and caregivers should wait in the basement Card Room, which will be well marked. Please do not leave this area-we rely on you being here so we can reunite you with your little shopper!
