2020 Emmanuel Christmas Shop
Celebrating 72 Years of Giving
More than seventy years ago, the Women of Emmanuel Episcopal Church began The Christmas Shop as a fundraiser for Emmanuel Episcopal Church and local ministry partners. Today proceeds still support the church and provide grants to local charitable organizations, such as A Place To Be, LAWS (Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter), Seven Loaves Food Pantry, Windy Hill housing, and others.
For the last seventy-one years The Christmas Shop has been an in-person event held at the Parish House or the Middleburg Community Center. This year the COVID-19 pandemic could have caused us to cancel, instead we are excited to report that we are going online.
By staging The Christmas Shop online, we can continue the tradition and offer shops and shoppers a safe way to participate in this holiday tradition. We will be able to offer more shops, more variety of items some of which are one of a kind. The shopper and the merchant can stay safe in their home or shop. The shopping experience is not limited to one weekend, but is available 24/7 throughout the fall and beyond. Meaning that shops can offer items for other seasons—St. Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, graduation and Father’s Day to name a few.
Importantly, we will continue to be a marketplace for the discerning shopper and gift giver. Only shops that offer high quality, unique, and delightful merchandise will be included. We will continue to use the earnings from The Christmas Shop to maintain our historic church and support the good work of local charitable organizations.
We hope to return to the Middleburg Community Center for an in-person show next year as well as continue to offer the online version for your convenience.
