After a weekend full of moving 40 merchants in to the Sphinx Club, a Sneak Peek preview party, a scholarship breakfast, a Libations for Literacy event with both a silent auction and live auction, a Pictures with Santa event, lots of happy shoppers and moving 40 merchants back out, the Junior League of Washington's Holiday Shops for this year is in the books. I loved serving on the committee this year with the League, and I was amazed by all the hard work it took to pull it off. So impressed with the ladies on the Steering Committee, our bagpipe-playing Santa and the amount of money raised for the improving literacy in the DC-metro area.
