As much as I love shopping, holiday shopping always stressed me out. As I’ve said before, I don’t like to get things people pick out for themselves. I like to put a lot of thought into it and give them something special. Great in theory, but finding those one-of-a-kind things are a full time job.
It wore me out to drive all over town to shop the local boutiques for unique gifts, and the big holiday shopping expos overwhelmed me. I wished there was a happy medium. A few vendors with unique stuff for men, women, grandparents, kids and pets – all under one roof. Annnnnnd it’s useful to see fashion shows when you shop because it gives you ideas for who would look good in what. Oh, and it’s always more fun to shop when you’re drinking a cocktail. : )
So, I took my wish list for what I’d love to have in a holiday shopping event and created it! It’s called the “Seasonably Chic Showcase.” The second annual event will be going on Saturday November 6 at the Phoenix downtown.
To get you all excited about the event, Cincinnati.com and I put together a giveaway where you can win goodies from our Seasonably Chic vendors (valued at $2,500+!).
