You’re Getting First Dibs!

Circle November 18, 2023 on your calendar, do some stretches, plan for a warm-up happy hour, and arrange any necessary childcare because you’re busy from 5-8pm. You’ll be in Downtown Edmonds kicking off the holiday season with exclusive shopping specials and as much merriment as you can handle.

First Dibs is here! And it’s all happening downtown.

The Shopping

Prepare to look for presents for everyone near and dear to you, especially yourself, as you peruse the latest holiday collections and snag must-haves before everyone else comes out of their post-Thanksgiving turkey coma.

All your favorite shops will be touting special discounts, exclusive experiences, and one-bite snacks just like fairies throw glitter and Oprah gives away cars.

You want a full list so you can plan your day, you say? You got it!

 The Wine

So, as much as we’re eager to clink glasses with you, Edmonds is not Las Vegas, so you can’t take your wine to go. You can, however, sip and shop at several of our aforementioned boutiques and downtown destinations.

Each Wine Stop Location will be serving locally-curated wines from Jeff Uncorked in a commemorative wine glass. Tickets must be purchased prior to the party. You can do that here.

We thank you in advance for your order—all proceeds benefit the holiday needs of Washington Kids in Transition. Shops and sips feel even better when you’re doing it for a great cause, don’t they?

Here’s the ticket breakdown:

  • $18 for one glass at any Wine Stop location and a festive collectible glass
  • $30 for two glasses at any Wine Stop location and a festive collectible glass
  • $42 for three glasses at any Wine Stop location and a festive collectible glass

Limited tickets will be sold onsite—first come, first served. Ticket pickup and check-in are at the Edmonds Historical Museum. Bring your ID! For the record, you don’t look a day over 25.

Get Your Shop On

Take us shopping with you—virtually! You don’t even have to spend money on us to do it. Just add #edmondsholidays to your posts and we’ll find you (and cheer you on) online.

If we don’t see you around the downtown blocks, thank you for shopping locally. It means the world, especially during the holidays.
