Winter Wonderland Market

Welcome to our Winter Wonderland Market- Sunday, December 12th from 12PM to 6PM

Come sip & shop with all of your favorite local small businesses! Enjoy our complimentary coffee bar, order a drink from the bar, and food from the Angry Ginger.

Bring your littles and/or your friends and get your 2021 SANTA  pictures done! Pricing starts at $10 for a printed 4×6 photo but you will have more pricing/packages to choose from, as well. We will also have lots of local vendors to shop from, stocking stuffers, & plenty of last-minute gift ideas! Donate a coat/blanket or 2 and get a FREE raffle ticket.

We will be at The Angry Ginger this month, in the Garden Pavilion! We may have a new location but we still have our MISSION of giving back to the local community at the heart  of each and every event! At each Sip & Shop, we will support a local cause in order to help give back to our community! We will have a raffle basket with lots of goodies donated from our vendors and crafters!
This month we are doing a COAT DRIVE! Feel free to bring new or used coats that we’ll donate to help keep our Onslow County friends in need warm this holiday season! All raffle proceeds & a portion of our vendor fees (and other monies/donations) will be going to our local homeless shelter/Salvation Army.

The shelter is in need of winter coats and blankets. The Salvation Army gives the homeless vouchers to shop at their thrift store.

We will be following COVID-19 guidelines. Hand Sanitizer will be available.

Start: 12/12/21

Light the World with Love

The Light the World with Love Initiative is an invitation for everyone “to play a part in the Christmas story.” It aims to inspire people to live the principles of Christlike love through small, daily acts of service.

A calendar is available with daily prompts of service ideas, and ways to be positive this holiday season. It could be to compliment a stranger, or post about someone who inspires you. Give to your local food bank, or bring a treat to someone you’ve been thinking about. The daily prompts invite you to be a LIGHT to someone else. We invite you to join us in Lighting the World with Love this holiday season and make it brighter then ever before.
