Southern State of Mind

Most Wonderful Time of The Year!

Alright, I know you are probably getting tired of my cheery and holiday titles for my posts lately but it is that time of year sooo!

I recently just went to an awesome shopping event, Holiday Gift Market put on by the Junior League of Tampa. I was a part of the committee and I can say it was a pretty big success this year. From over 200 vendors, fun gifts, accessories and more. Our theme this year was Tampa Wonderland and that it was. The market held a Preview Party the Thursday before the doors opened that Friday.

The theme was apres ski and it was spot on. There were even skis you could take photos by, a dining area that looked like a ski lodge and just every other detail. The two chairs who put together the event were awesome and very good at attention to detail.

If you haven’t been to the Holiday Gift Market, you should go next year. The dates are November 8 to 11 I believe. All of the proceeds go back to the Tampa Bay community and our projects. The market also has events for your little ones so you can keep them entertained while you shop too. From Breakfast with the Princesses to Cookies with the Claus’. For you mamas and gal pal time, there is an additional mimosa sip and shop which is a pretty brilliant idea if you ask me 😉

One major highlight was our Young Entrepreneur Program winner, Pawz Publishing. Rebekah Phillips is a creative author who writes adorable lessons for children to learn that even comes with a stuffed animal. This is a perfect way for the kids to interact even more with the books and the lessons in them. I picked up a couple of them as gifts. They are too precious not to.

Well, I will leave you to it and you can look at the shots below I got at the market. Have a lovely day xx
