This Shopping Spree Will Make You Holly & Jolly!

The most fun you’ll ever have shopping local for the holidays is at St. Augustine’s Holly Jolly Shopping Spree. Mimosas, discounts, one-of-a-kind gifts, a delightful lunch and plenty of time with family and friends – that’s the Holly Jolly way!

The Holly Jolly Shopping Spree takes place Saturday, November 17, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Uptown shopping district in St. Augustine. Uptown Shops are the best kept secret in town. These independently owned boutiques, galleries, shops and restaurants are at the center of a day of shopping like no other.

You’ll start the morning at the Old Town Trolley depot where you’ll find free parking and check in for the tour. You’ll receive a special bracelet or necklace that identifies you as a “Holly Jolly Shopper” throughout the day. This is what shopkeepers use to make sure you get the special discounts offered only to tour participants.

Before you board the Trolley enjoy a cocktail – or mocktail – sponsored by Carrera's Wine Cellar and peruse the goodies at the Spice & Tea Exchange.  Once aboard your driver will lead the way with a chorus of Christmas Carols as you head to Uptown, located on San Marco Avenue between Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and the Mission Nombre de Dios.

The Dutch Convey shop is your first stop to pick up your free shopping bag with gifts from local merchants. Make sure you’ve got your list because there are plenty of unique gifts to choose from. You’ll find clothing, jewelry, housewares, children’s items, wine, art, antiques, furniture and much more. And there is even a silent auction.

Take a respite during your shopping for lunch at local favorite Raintree Restaurant.  And most of all, have a great day with best friends and family.

Tickets for the Holly Jolly Shopping Spree are $45 each and include lunch. Purchase your tickets at
