SPONSORED POST: The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club will host the 42nd Annual Wellesley Marketplace on Saturday, November 17, once more at Wellesley High School location at 50 Rice St. Buy tickets online here. Organized by The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club, proceeds from the show are given back to the community in the form of need-based scholarships and grants.
Marketplace is the unofficial start of the holiday season for those seeking unique locally made gifts. The event typically draws a crowd of over 1,700 shoppers eager to see goodies made by the 200 artists and crafts people from New England and afar. Wellesley Marketplace is the place to find unique hostess and teacher gifts, hand-made note cards, one-of-a-kind jewelry, home accessories, dog toys, ornaments, delicious food treats, or that special, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork for the person who has everything.
New this year: Complimentary gift wrapping will be available to all shoppers courtesy of Sustainable Wellesley, so be sure to swing by their table on the first floor to have your gifts wrapped in beautiful Japanese Furoshiki wraps.
