There is a great opportunity to get some of your Christmas shopping done early this afternoon.
Governors Square is holding a Christmas Bazaar from 4 to 8pm and not only will the shops be open late, but a whole lot of stalls will also be set up in the main square.
Even if you haven’t got your head around Christmas yet, it will be a chance get a little out of hours retail therapy in a festive setting and pick up some unusual knickknacks.
The Governors Square stores will be open late and will have some special offers on for the duration of the bazaar only. In addition though, local artisans, charities and small vendors have been invited to set up stalls selling their wares. The main square will be closed to traffic and decorated with coloured flags.
Governors Square owners Bobby and Supriya Bodden have been delighted by the enthusiasm local vendors have expressed for the idea and are considering making this an annual event. So far, 67 stalls have been reserved and there will be all sorts of vendors from those selling handmade jewellery and artwork to jams and baked goods. There will be handicrafts, plants, exotic teas and spices. Tortuga Rums will be setting up a tent offering the public a taste of their cakes and charities such as the local Red Cross and Humane Society will bringing along some of their thrift store stock.
There will be a huge variety of goods on offer and even if you’re not ready to purchase gifts yet, it’s a great opportunity to do some research and get to know what’s available locally.
What better way to support Cayman businesses and start getting into the festive spirit?
