Biz Showcase: Matthew’s Hall – Holly & Ivey Event
It’s that time of year again! Vendor selection is com- plete, bakers have chosen their recipes, and Mat- thews Hall is in the final preparatory stages for their annual “Holly and Ivy” shopping event!
In its 9th year, Holly and Ivy have proved a popular destination for that unique gift and is often referred to as London’s very own “One of a Kind” show. Held annually the 3rd week in November, it is timed per- fectly for getting the community excited about the upcoming holiday season. With the increasing popularity to “buy local” and with over 45 booths this year, we offer something for everyone on your list. Whether it’s all natural skin care, soy candles, charming jewelry, fine art, stylish home accessories, pretty pottery, handmade children’s’ clothing, cozy hand-knit mittens, sweaters, and cashmere shawls, Italian leather bags, gourmet food and decadent desserts and so much more, Holly and Ivy’s unique artisans will have you covered.
The doors of Matthews Hall at 1370 Oxford Street West were open to more than 1000 shoppers last year. As a fundraiser for the school, the show is 100% volunteer-led with 10 moms taking the lead and putting a year into planning this not to be missed event. Not only is this a wonderful shopping event, but it is also an opportunity to showcase our dedicated parent volunteers, teachers, staff, lovely students and school. The gym and atrium undergo a magical transformation with holiday decor and music, our raffle table is set with exciting donations, and whether it’s our sought-after baklava or Skor bars, our bakers are second to none and will offer you enough variety to stock your freezers with all your holiday baking needs.
Please join us! Come to visit local talented artisans from your community, take a coffee or tea break in our cafe and browse the work of our handpicked, high-quality vendors. We are an accessible event and we invite you to “like” our Facebook page and get a special BOGO at our cafe. See you at Holly and Ivy!
