SPONSORED POST: The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club will host the 4oth Annual Wellesley Marketplace on Saturday, Nov. 19 at its NEW LOCATION at Wellesley High School, 50 Rice St. The exciting move to the high school building will provide lots of windows and light, large open spaces for craft booths, and plenty of parking. Open from 9am – 4pm, Marketplace is an annual retail favorite for those seeking unique holiday gifts for family and friends. With its cut-above-the-ordinary offerings, shopping at Marketplace is always a great way to cross off plenty of items on your holiday shopping list. Shoppers will have access to over 240 vendors and artisans from New England and further afield.
Tickets are available online here, at Roche Bros. and at the door. Premium shopping tickets ($20) offer exclusive “early bird shopping” from 9 am to 10 am. Premium tickets, which must be purchased in advance, can be bought at the Wellesley Roche Brothers courtesy booth or online at WHJWC.org. Regular admission is $15; admission for seniors and students is $5.
WHJWC was established in 1944 as a service organization under the Massachusetts Federation of Women’s Clubs. Through its four fundraisers –the Wellesley Marketplace, Luminary Night, the Kitchen Tour and the new 5K Wonder Run – the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club proceeds go to both local charities and to Wellesley High School students. In 2014-2015, WHJWC donated approximately $130,000 to the community through scholarships and charitable grants to local non-profit organizations.
