A Chelsea Tradition: Wine, Women & Shopping is Nov. 12-13

Let Chelsea be your Happy Place this Holiday Season. Lift your spirits while shopping at the 16th Annual Wine, Women & Shopping Event.

Participating merchants will make your seasonal shopping easy with genuine customer service and an abundance of cheer. You will experience an impressive display of unique gift items, ranging from custom-designed jewelry, pottery, clothing, accessories, holiday decor, garden decor, soap, skincare, fresh floral arrangements, appliances, candles, new inventory, fall meal ingredients, snacks, pop-ups, and so much more.

Chelsea restaurants will provide a warm welcome while you are out and about shopping. They will be serving up seasonal beverages, wine, beer, and specialty cocktails. You will find tasty menu options for a quick bite, lunch or dinner, and of course, dessert!  It is recommended you check prior to making plans because the  pandemic has left many restaurants short staffed resulting in curtailed hours. Most restaurants have online ordering. Participating restaurants  can be found HERE
