AG Events & Design Classes
2020 has delivered quite a curveball to our Events & Design Classes! Our AG Design Classes are on a hiatus for the rest of 2020, but you can be sure that they will come back even better than ever in 2021! Stay tuned for more information here on our website and on our social media pages!
So, that leads us to JINGLE & MINGLE! Each year, we close our shop briefly and paper the windows so that we can redecorate and kick off the holiday season in style by revealing our holiday gifts & decor. In the past, that big reveal has been accompanied by an all-day Open House with holiday treats, wine & cheese, music, a special sale, crowds and —– wait! That’s where we have run into a problem this year. We need to keep our staff and our community safe – so there will be no crowded open house at Andrew’s Garden this year. But, we couldn’t just leave it there. We have WAY TOO MUCH really awesome holiday merchandise that has been arriving daily since July! (Really, we search high & low for it in January every year and it starts arriving in July!!)
This year, we have JINGLE & MINGLE-REIMAGINED! How about private appointments for shopping at Andrew’s Garden??!! Imagine being one of the first private appointments after we unveil our new holiday decor. Just you and a couple of friends – inside Andrew’s Garden – all by yourselves – with holiday treats, wine & cheese, music, a special sale – and NO CROWDS! It’s your own private Jingle & Mingle! Doesn’t that sound awesome? You might even have to do it more than once!!
So that is what we are going to do! We must manage the number of people in the shop at all times, so we are releasing lots of 45 minute shopping appointments for up to 6 people at a time. We recommend you reserve an early date because we purchase lots of our merchandise in limited quantities. You will have the best options if you shop early! We have times available weekdays & weekends, mornings and evenings. We will be open for regular shopping each day too, but we may have to ask you to wait outside if we are at maximum capacity. The other advantage to a private shopping appointment is that each ticket comes with our Jingle & Mingle special sale of 20% off gift merchandise (exclusions apply). Our talented staff will be on hand to help you choose the most perfect decor or to assemble the most perfect gift!
Tickets will be released and available starting at 11am on Friday, October 23, 2020. We will add more times in December at a later date. Watch our social media pages for an announcement about more dates. And, let us know if you love the concept! We may just continue it into the new year!
General Information for JINGLE & MINGLE-REIMAGINED:
- Tickets are FREE! Each person attending must have a separate ticket including any children you may bring with you.
- Each Exclusive Shopping Event is for 45 minutes. Your ticket will specify the specific day & time of your appointment. Our doors will be closed to the public during the appointment, so you will be free to wander around the shop, uninterrupted. Please arrive at the time of your appointment. If you arrive early, we may ask you to wait outside.
- We have scheduled a 15 minute gap between appointments so that Andrew’s Garden staff has an opportunity to sanitize high-contact areas, wipe down our payment terminals and replenish any refreshments. Please finalize your purchases so that we may start that process at a quarter to each hour.
- You must be wearing a mask, properly covering your nose & mouth, for entry. While inside, you may remove your mask to enjoy our complimentary refreshments, but please put it back on as soon as you are done OR at any time you are within 6 feet of our staff or any other shoppers not in your group.
- Don’t be afraid to come by yourself & meet new friends!
During each Exclusive Shopping Event, you will enjoy our Jingle & Mingle Sale of 20% OFF of nearly everything in the shop! *Sale Excludes: Fresh Flowers & Plants, Gift Cards, Weddings & Events, and Floral Subscriptions. Although we may announce a general sale for the public, the Jingle & Mingle Sale does not apply to prior purchases or any purchases made outside of your exclusive shopping event. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
