Downtown Huntsville’s Girlfriends’ Getaway Weekend

Truth be told, I don’t care much for shopping, but I do know a great shopping opportunity when I see oneand there’s one coming up in just a few weeks. The businesses of Huntsville’s historic downtown district are putting on a great weekend of shopping, dining and pampering just for the ladies. It’s called the Girlfriends’ Getaway Weekend and it’s taking place November 21-23.

Of course, downtown Huntsville is a pleasure to shop at any time. There are no big box, big chain stores stocked with towering stacks of the same old same old. Instead, most of downtown Huntsville’s shops are independently owned and operated, and chock full of unique items and great finds. Very often the shop owner is the person behind the counter or manning the floor, so you know you’ll get courteous service and knowledgeable help.

During the Downtown Huntsville Girlfriends’ Getaway Weekend, you’ll also get great discounts and goodies. Registration for the event is free and includes a Getaway Passport giving you access to discounts, giveaways, demonstrations, activity sessions, hand & neck massages, and the chance to win a Grand Prize draw worth over $500. Donations will be accepted to help support the local hospital’s Mammogram Unit.

Over 40 businesses are participating, including:
4 Muskoka Kids; Ahimsa; Algonquin Outfitters; Aroma Dining & Drinks; Artisans of Muskoka; Big Bead; Christmas Tyme; Flotron’s Tweed & Hickory; Gone Quilting; Muskoka Country Furniture; Muskoka Jewellery Design & Gallery; Muskoski Urban Rustic Living; Northern Baking Co.; Petticoats; Plum Loco; Reflections of Muskoka; Rubber Lubbers The Stamp Emporium; Saturday Afternoons Home Store; Shine; Soapstones Soap & Skincare; Soul Sistas; That Little Place by the Lights; The Bookcase; The Cranberry Kids Gift Co.; The Finds; The Great Vine; The Nutty Chocolatier; Veranda Home & Garden Collection; Wooden Penny; Yesterday’s Book

Make a date with your mother, sister or best gal pal and get all your holiday shopping done in one whirlwind weekend where you’ll find one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your list—including yourself!
