Shop locally for the holidays.  Ride a trolley to Uptown shops, be jolly, and save.

Soon summer will be over and cooler winds will prevail, and our eyes turn to football, décor, and our favorite recipes.  At season’s end comes Thanksgiving, colder weather and the enchanting noels of Christmas.  For those savvy planners who want a head start on holiday shopping—a chance to find thoughtful gifts and seasonal clothing—Holly Jolly Shopping Spree is a unique event just for you.

The tenth annual shopping spree will be held on Saturday, November 16 between 9a. and 4p.  Gifts, holiday decorations, and other special treasures will be there for the picking. It is also an opportunity to support local Uptown businesses who generously support our community.  Do not miss Carrera's Wine Cellar’s Sparkling Soirée to kick off the spree.  The Spice and Tea Exchange will be offering cocktails and mocktails. The soirée will be held at 167 San Marco Avenue from 9 to 10a.

After mingling and sipping, catch a sightseeing trolley (Old Town Trolley Tours) for a journey designed specially for you—a whirlwind shop-a-thon that meanders along San Marco Avenue, with silent auction items and photo-booth along the way.  Oh, and there is a scheduled layover at Raintree Restaurant, where you will be served a tasty lunch and have a chance to win raffle prizes. A great day of fun and camaraderie awaits.  Invite your friends, relatives and other savvy shoppers you know.  

The ticket price is only $45.  The cost includes a trolley ride, brunch, special discounts and offers from Uptown merchants, and donation to a local, charitable beneficiary.  The beneficiary will be awarded a check at 4:30p on the day of the spree at Carrera Wine Gallery.  

Participants park and meet between 9 and 10 a.m. at Old Town Trolley Tours, 167 San Marco Avenue, St. Augustine, Florida. We are limited to 300 guests, so make your reservation early.  No tickets are issued; names will be on a guest list at check-in by The Old Jail.
