The Fairfield Museum & History Center invites the public to “get a jump on holiday shopping and support a good cause” by visiting the 4th annual Holiday Pop-Up Market, featuring an array of products, on Friday and Saturday.
Described as a “shopping extravaganza,” the event is presented in conjunction by the National Charity League’s Fairfield Chapter, described as a “mother-daughter philanthropic organization with over 60,000 members serving communities across the United States.”
“The Holiday Pop-Up Market transforms the Museum into a thriving marketplace,” said co-chair Suzanne Goodrich. Items for sale include handcrafted jewelry; fashions for women, men and children; cosmetics; as well as hostess gifts, accessories and home décor. The museum shop will be open, offering locally-made items, Fairfield-themed gifts and a variety of toys, books and accessories, she added.
Pop-Up Market vendors are contributing to special Market Baskets, which will be distributed through a blind drawing at the close of the event. Attendance at the drawing is not necessary win.
The Museum’s current exhibitions, “Signs of the Times,” “Uncle Sam Wants You: Fairfield and the Great War” and “Creating Community” will be open for guests to tour.
Jennifer Carolan, co-chair, said “The Holiday Pop-up Market provides an opportunity for the public to shop locally, support small businesses and benefit two great nonprofit community organizations,” which will share profits.
