Saturday, December 9; Saturday, December 16; and Saturday, December 23: Wrap It Up Saturdaze and Dress For Success STYLE UP Pop Up Shop.

It’s December already and that big day is nearing! Thankfully, the Short North Arts District is ready to serve shoppers who didn’t quite clear their lists once the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales ceded. Fear not, for while holiday performers entertain High Street, art, home decor, accessories, unique clothing, and so much more is waiting for you to wrap up and stick a bow on when you shop local with Short North retailers. What’s even better is how you can get that bow for free: bring those freshly-bought gifts to the Holiday Headquarters at 873 N. High St from 12:00pm – 6:00pm to receive complimentary gift wrapping!

This holiday bonus is made possible by a partnership with Dress for Success, a Columbus organization that works to empower workplace women in need. Dress for Success will be accepting donations at the Holiday Headquarters, so raid your closets for new or gently-used clothing or jewelry to help your community.

You can also shop Dress for Success’ STYLE UP Pop Up Shop, a curated collection of upscale resale women’s fashion, as well as stylish new apparel donated by Happy Go Lucky Her. Featuring holiday, leisure, denim, corner office, fur, faux fur, and accessories from St. John, ESCADA, Armani, Chanel, Lafayette 148, and chic must-haves starting at $25.00. Cash, check, and credit cards accepted.

In addition, Santa will be at the Holiday Headquarters and available for photos from 12:00pm -4:00pm. You can also bring a copy of the Holiday Shopping Guide to receive $5.00 off a Short North Arts District Limited Edition Throwback T-Shirt, or $2.00 off a Short North Arts District Tote Bag.
