Start your holiday shopping at Village Project on Dec. 4

The clock is ticking. There are just five weeks left until Christmas. It’s time to get a jump on holiday gift shopping so you will have more opportunity with your favorite people to enjoy the tastes, smells, emotions and experiences of the season.

The Village Project has your back. They are holding Holiday Shoppe, a special shopping event, at their Project Shoppe store on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 5-9 p.m. to assist you in finding unique and locally sourced gift items for all the special people on your list. Project Shoppe is located within Village Project’s headquarters at 27378 West Oviatt Road in Bay Village.

You will be able to shop and visit with local vendors onsite that evening, including Gourmet Firehouse Salsa, Hazelmade, NOSH Butters, Snowmon’s Kombucha and Tootsweet Soap Shack.

Also onsite will be the popular and fun Wandering Wardrobe truck (think food truck, but offering the latest in women’s clothing and accessories) and Opulenza Designs, who will be selling their high quality, unique, hand-crafted sterling silver jewelry for that evening only.

Make sure you check out the cute and cozy knit hats and scarves from Love Your Melon and headbands from Headbands of Hope—apparel brands dedicated to supporting the fight against pediatric cancer. Project Shoppe also offers fun, witty and fragrant candles from Furbish & Fire Candle Co., The Home Pantry jams made from top-quality ingredients sourced from local farms, delicious loose leaf teas from Steeple House Teas and a variety of holiday and themed gift items. You will also find specialty vinegars, granolas and herbed salts made right in the Village Project kitchen using the freshest, organic ingredients.

Don’t forget that pooch on your gift list. Fresh, organic dog treats and other pet-themed gift items – all of them Ernie-approved – will be available at the Holiday Shoppe. It will be sure to earn you plenty of wet kisses and wagging tails.

Grab a friend or two for a fun evening out on Dec. 4. At the same time, experience the joy of giving by shopping at this local gem, knowing that proceeds from store purchases help support the Village Project’s mission of coming together as a community of all ages to provide nourishing meals and extended care to our neighbors who are experiencing cancer. This event is free with the donation of one item from Village Project’s “Most Needed Donation Items” list available at
