The name Sweet Grass itself evokes a peaceful ambiance, and no time of the year beckons for a calming escape more than the hectic holidays!
Happily, this relaxing retail destination is also the finest shopping spot you could land on, and owners Rich and Michelle Harris enjoy providing the ultimate shopping experience at their shop in Mooresville all throughout the year. The holiday months simply mean greeting new and current customers with a little extra magic, beginning with the shop’s Holiday Open House on Friday, November 9th, from 4:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
“We will be featuring our wonderful regular vendors, some local favorites, and a couple of new vendors we’re very excited about!” shares Michelle.
Shoppers will enjoy delicious fare from the popular food truck Tacos on the Road, and a free open bar with festive craft cocktails from Side Bar Trailer Co. As always, there will be special giveaways — with between 40 and 50 wonderful prizes available to win!
“With a purchase, shoppers can fill out a raffle ticket for our giveaways. We will draw winners a couple of days after the event, so you don’t have to be present to win — just make a purchase!” Michelle explains.
Then, more holiday magic arrives every Sunday in the month of December — with weekly visits from Santa!
Michelle and Rich consider this chance to make wonderful family memories their gift back to customers, as a thank-you for such amazing support all year long. Photos with Santa is a free event — first come, first served — and you don’t have to travel far from home. Just bring your family (including fur babies!), your camera, and a generous helping of holiday cheer!
Loyal shoppers at Sweet Grass also know the shop’s stylish gift wrap in their signature gift bag can be a lifesaver — they will have you on your way in minutes, with the perfect gift wrapped and ready to go under your tree!
The possibilities at Sweet Grass are endless: Candles, home décor, serve ware, gourmet foods and teas, jewelry, novelty towels, pet accessories, creative stocking stuffers, goodies for your favorite pickleball player, and plenty of unique holiday décor for your home.
Another gift perk — especially for significant others! — is the shop’s customer list of favorite things. The Sweet Grass team knows the wish-list of regular customers — and they are happy to share. Hint: The shop inventory is always changing, so if you see the perfect gift for someone on your list — buy it, don’t wait!
