Think Local Pop-Up Shop Lake Forest
November 25 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
This holiday season, the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the City of Lake Forest to open the annual pop-up shop in Market Square to benefit local nonprofit entities in Lake Forest & Lake Bluff.
Moved to a new location this year at 252 Market Square the ‘Think Local Pop-Up Shop’ (formerly known as the Lake Forest Station Pop-Up Shop) will debut on Friday, November 25, the day of the Annual Tree Lighting Holiday Celebration in Market Square and be open for shopping Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 4 pm throughout the holiday season.
This year there will be a ‘Think Local’ theme and an expanded focus for the shop spotlighting all things local. The shop will add to the holiday buzz in the downtown shopping district and support many local nonprofits by providing a venue to raise their visibility and sell branded items. When you purchase merchandise from one of the nonprofit organizations, proceeds from the sale will go directly to that organization. Nonprofits will also have volunteers on site on designated days to help spread awareness and information about their organizations.
The shop will not only showcase the participating groups and provide the opportunity to pick up some unique and fun items with a local twist, but there will also be information available about things to do at our local arts and cultural spots – shows, exhibits, special events – and info about specials and offers at local merchants and eateries launching on ‘Small Business Saturday’ (Nov. 26).
Among those participating are Artists on the Bluff, CROYA, Deerpath Art League, Elawa Farm, Equestrian Connection, First Presbyterian Church, Green Minds, Lake Forest Open Lands, Lake Forest Preservation Foundation, LFHS Boosters, McMahon Gallery (benefitting all groups), Mother’s Trust Foundation, Paws for Patrick, Ragdale and Reading Power.
