Shop Night is Monday, November 13, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. You will find many of your favorite vendors along with some new ones.  It’s a great time to support our member shops as well as other local vendors while doing some shopping all in one place!  Please be sure to invite some friends as guests for that night.  Please note that the doors to the Temple will be locked at 7:00 p.m. so please be sure to arrive before then.
