C.W. Parker Carousel Museum's Annual Children's Small Mall
Saturday, December 7, 2019
9 am to 5 pm
The Children's Small Mall is designed for kids 3 to 13 years old to do their own holiday shopping for family, teachers and friends in a secure environment. This fun filled event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7th, 9-5 and Sunday, Dec. 8th, 10-4. Children love this event as it allows them to pick out something they think their loved ones will want without the presence of a parent and the gift comes from the heart. For the first time shopper and parents it is important to know what to expect so our 'Head Elf' explains the process. The gifts are priced at $3, $5 and $7 in order not to break the family budget and are prepaid by the parent. Our volunteer elves escort each little shopper with their completed gift list into the shopping area where the gifts are arranged according to category and price. For the shopper it can be exciting and overwhelming trying to make a decision on that perfect gift. Our wide selection of gifts include jewelry, scarves, candles, tools, calendars, desk accessories, gift sets, toys, books, stuffed animals and sweets just to name a few. Once the gift list is completed they are then wrapped, labeled and ready to be placed under the tree. To complete their shopping experience each child receives a free ride on the 1913 carousel, (photo op) a bag of 'Magic Reindeer' food, movies and access to the Kid's Craft Corner to make some awesome ornaments. Parents, while waiting for your little shoppers enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate and browse through the gifts, crafts, baked goods available for purchase and take a chance on our Sports Cooler, Kid's Tent and Women's Basket raffles.
