Don't let kids know (actually do let the kids know): the annual Secret Shoppe is coming soon to in Maplewood.
Now in its 15th year, the Secret Shoppe will take place on Saturday, December 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Children of all faiths, ages pre-school to grade 5, can shop "in secret" for holiday gifts for family, teachers and friends.
Shoppers will be assisted by teenage and adult "elves" in their selections. Free gift wrapping is included with each purchase. Sponsored by the Prospect Presbyterian Women, the sale will feature new gift items ranging in price from $2 to $9.
All proceeds from the children's Secret Shoppe will be donated to charity.
While the children shop, adults are invited to stop by the hospitality room for light refreshments and some shopping opportunities of their own. Hand-made gift items will be available for purchase at the Greater Gift (SERRV) Shop.
