If you were to ask kids what they like best about Christmas and the holidays, most would say presents. The great thing is that they love to give presents as well as receive them. And now, they have a safe and fun place to shop for the perfect gifts for friends, siblings, parents, and anyone else they would like a gift for.
The One Stop Elf Shop Kids Market is located inside City Center at 10 College Avenue, across from Tropical Smoothie. It is open every Saturday from 9am until 12:30pm during the Downtown Appleton Farm Market. Parents are encouraged to wait in the “North Pole Lobby” at the front of the store while an “elf” helps the kids choose the perfect gift for everyone on their list.
Kids can find a variety of items from twelve different Downtown businesses. Everything from art supplies, silly socks, jewelry, soaps & candles, and even candy – this will make it easy for them to find something for everyone on their list!
This year they get to shop items from:
- Attic on the Ave
- Crazy Sweet
- Creative Downtown Appleton Inc.
- Eco Candle Co.
- Heid Music
- hey, daisy!
- Items of Interest
- Lillians of Appleton
- Pinot’s Palette
- Sonnet’s Garden Blooms
- Vagabond Imports
- The Vintage Garden
All items are priced at $10 or less. And to make it a little easier, most items are priced in even dollar amounts and already include the sales tax. The elves also help the kids keep their budgets on track.
After the shopping is done, the kids can decorate gift bags for each present. With stickers, stamps, crayons, markers and ribbons, kids unleash their creativity. Sometimes it seems like they enjoy this as much as the shopping.
So bring your little ones to the One Stop Elf Shop and take a moment for yourself to relax as you check another item off your to-do list!
