Holiday decorations are up, “Jingle Bells” is on the radio—it seems that that time of year is finally upon us! For those of you who prefer to wait until after the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving to focus on December’s festivities, we understand (a little). But we can’t help but get excited for this Thursday’s Holiday Open House along Lillie Avenue in Summerland (November 15, 3–7 p.m.), where we’ll really start to feel the holiday season in Santa Barbara.
Local shop owners along Lillie Avenue will offer one-day specials and showcase their holiday merchandise, while Summerland Winery offers tastings and Café Luna hosts Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. for complimentary beer tastings. Live music will be heard up and down Lillie Avenue, and art lovers can get their fix at local artist Nancy Heffron‘s exhibit.
Participating retail locations include Amelia Jane, Bonita, Botanik, Just Folk, Pine Trader and the new Waxing Poetic location. Be sure to get a jump start on your holiday shopping with the great deals and complimentary sips and bites throughout Summerland. Shop, socialize and savor—what more could you ask for?
