save the dates for 2017 holiday events from Holland Cox

 

As always, there’s lots going on this holiday season, and I don’t want you to miss anything. If you’re already an Insider, just look out for emails from me and you’ll always be in the loop!

First up, the Black Owned Small Business Expo is on Small Business Saturday this year, November 25.

The Expo will be held at the Waldorf Culture Center (109 Post Office Rd, Waldorf MD 20602), 9:30 am – 4:00 pm. Drop by to see more than sixty small business owners from the DC area, representing a wide variety of products and services. Come by and shop small, and support your local community this Thanksgiving weekend instead of big box stores!

 

The following Tuesday, I’ll be launching another mini-collection of a new handbag style, plus a restock of favorite gifts from the shop like the neckties and the perfect pouches. As always, Insiders will enjoy a special price on these limited edition accessories.the small perfect pouch, the mini perfect pouch, a keychain and the 19th st wallet

That weekend, I’ll be in Richmond for the Richmond Craft Mafia’s Handmade Holiday Show! It’s now a two day show, so make sure to come out both Saturday and Sunday to see me and a ton of other amazing independent makers.

The show will be held at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, from 11am to 6pm on both days.

 

Tuesday morning is the start of the biggest sale of the year at Holland Cox, when everything goes on sale (even handbags from last season that have been marked down). You surely don’t want to miss this, so make sure you’ve subscribed to the Insider’s List so you get notified bright and early that morning!

 

I’m thrilled to again be a vendor at GRUMP, surely the most interesting holiday shopping venue in DC. The GRUMP Arts & Crafts Show will be happening 12pm to 5pm in the Crystal City Underground.

The finale of the holiday season will be my anniversary party and trunk show, where I will be celebrating 13 years of designing and making for Holland Cox! If you’d like to attend, you must be a subscriber to the Insider’s List, and indicate that you live in the DC area to receive an invitation.

It will be an afternoon of sweets, champagne, and shopping, and a great way to say thank you to my customers, and finish off another awesome year.

In addition to the big sale that starts December 5, I’ll have special promotions at each event as well, so it will definitely be worth it to shop in person! Hope to see you at lease once in the next few weeks!
