The Shops of Ruskin Become “The 12 Shops of Christmas”
December 4, 2011 by SoWal Staff
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, food, drink and discounts, and the best Christmas shopping locally.
The Shops of Ruskin present a new twist on a favorite tune with “The 12 Shops of Christmas” December 3-14. When you choose to shop with The Shops of Ruskin this holiday season and make a minimum purchase of $25 in each shop during December 3-14, you’ll receive a case of Mumm’s Cuvee champagne from Modica Market at the end of your shopping spree! It’s that simple.
What a perfect way to support local artisans, take advantage of amazing discounts and receive a treat for yourself at the end of your 12-day shopping spree. Shopping cards will be available at each shop beginning on December 3 to keep track of your purchases. Your shopkeeper will stamp your card when you spend $25 or more in their store. After 12 stamps, you’ll receive a case of champagne from Modica Market.
While strolling and shopping through The Shops of Ruskin, you’ll also enjoy festive lights and decorations in Ruskin Park, live music and season ticket giveaways from Sinfonia Gulf Coast, and specials from each shop. Each shop will offer discounts ranging from 10-20% off purchases, refreshments, and prizes on their designated day. For example, on December 5, FOCUS will offer a complimentary photo booth strip for you and your loved ones with your purchase.
Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s jazz pianist Cam Ray will perform holiday classics on December 3 and December 10 in Ruskin Place.
Be sure to pick up a Shops of Ruskin tee shirt for the perfect stocking stuffer! Tees are available for sale in each shop and proceeds go to benefit The Ruskin Place Artist Guild - A not for profit organization with the mission of supporting and promoting culture in Seaside, Florida through complimentary art-related events.
