With the holidays nearing and children passing around their Christmas lists, it’s normal to find yourself anxious at the mere thought of gift shopping with the little ones in tow. But what if you could keep your sanity AND enjoy a moms’ night out, sans kiddos? Voila, it’s time for the OPEN Holiday Market!
Moms’ Night Out at OPEN Holiday Market
This event series is perfect for a night (or nights!) out in Downtown San Antonio while enjoying some of the greatest local shops you can find. After all, you deserve a shopping break with your besties.
A City of San Antonio initiative, the OPEN Holiday Market kicks off THIS FRIDAY, Dec. 11, and goes through Dec. 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every day. Here’s the gist: we’ve all heard of pop-up shops, right? Well this event series is exactly that, plus you’ll be shopping and supporting local, something we can all certainly get behind. The City partners with property owners and retailers to provide local entrepreneurs with a pop-up shop in vacant downtown storefronts while giving you a unique shopping experience, just in time for the holidays.
140 E. Houston St. Suites #40 & #41 | 231 E. Houston St. | 115 E. Travis St. Suite #109
Whether you’re looking for sweet little stocking stuffers or unique presents to place under the tree, OPEN is the perfect opportunity to grab gifts for your loved ones. Featuring everything from leather handmade goods and women’s fashions to fresh flowers, bath goods, home wares, candles and more, the OPEN Holiday Market has just what you need to cross those remaining gift items off your list.
OPEN Progressive Opening Party
What’s more, OPEN is hosting a Progressive Opening Party tomorrow, Dec. 11 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., so you can treat yourself to a moms’ night out this weekend! With holiday treats and eats, goodie bags, live music, and more, you’ll enjoy sipping and shopping your way from shop to shop while getting a guided tour of the locations and learning more about what you can expect during the pop-up program.
Can’t make it tomorrow night? The market is OPEN through Dec. 19—so mark your calendars and schedule a time to sneak away for some much-needed mommy shopping time and a fun night out for the holidays!
