The Davie County Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 2nd Annual iSHOPDavie Gift Shopping Expo on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 3:30-7:30 p.m. at WinMock at Kinderton, 168 E. Kinderton Way in Bermuda Run.

More than 50 vendors will showcase and sell their products and services. Several local restaurants and caterers will be onsite offering a variety of food samplings and items to purchase.

Davie County vineyards will also offer wine tastings and selling bottles of wine as well as several gift items.

As a special treat to the kids and young at heart, Santa Claus is taking time out of his busy schedule to visit with shoppers.

“Last year’s event was a huge success with over 300 shoppers buying from our local vendors,” said Carolyn McManamy, chamber president. “This year’s event is 100% focused on gift shopping and considered the official Kick Off to Christmas Shopping with a local flair.

“Once again the Davie County Chamber is getting into the spirit of the season and raising money for Toys for Tots and Shop with a Cop. Adult shoppers may purchase a glass of wine for $3 and the proceeds will be donated to these two local charities.

“With an early sell out of vendor space, the Davie Chamber is currently looking at options to expand into the downstairs allowing even more shopping opportunities.”

Many vendors are back again this year including Birdhouses by Jerry File, Mimi’s Boutique, A Full Measure Catering, Advance Florist & Gift Boutique, California Fresh Caterers and Pearl Girls jewelry.

There are several new vendors who will be participating:  The Daisy Depot, Scarlett’s Unique Boutique, Gemini Skincare and Flying Fish Pottery – to name a few.

The first 300 shoppers will receive a special iSHOPDAVIE reusable shopping bag and find the best selections of gifts.

“The Davie County Chamber wishes to extend a huge thank you to Habitat Restore and Lowes Home Improvement for decking the halls again this year,” she said. “Many of the Christmas trees and decorations will be for sale by the Restore and will be happy to go home with you that night.”

Why wait until Black Friday to start shopping?  The Davie County Chamber invites you to get a jump start on shopping at the iSHOPDAVIE Gift Shopping Expo on Thursday, Nov. 5 at WinMock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run.
