If you’ve ever wanted to combine your holiday shopping with parties and philanthropy, this is your week to do so. The Kitchen Source, Pettigrew & Associates and the International Interior Design Association are all hosting back-to-back holiday shopping and auction events starting Nov. 17.
The Kitchen Source will be hosting its Holiday Shopping Soiree on Nov. 17 from 2 to 8 p.m., during which shoppers can mingle, eat and drink while perusing gifts from dozens of vendors. Vendors include Arbonne and Mary Kay cosmetic products, Paparazzi and Stella & Dot jewelry, Margaret Miller Designs dresses and tunics, Scentsy Wickless Candles, and many others. The event is free, but donations will be collected for local charities.
Catholic Charities of Dallas is hosting their Hope for the Holidays event at Pettigrew and Associates on Nov. 18 from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person ($40 at the door) and include wine, scotch and cocktail tastings, food, sweets, and live entertainment. As far as shopping goes, the event will feature more than 25 local vendors, holiday gift ideas and themed table-top Christmas trees designed by top Dallas designers. Vendors at the event include Southern Hippie traveling boutique, Deborah Gaspar belts and jewelry, The Preppy Debutante, and Enchanted Interiors, among others. You can purchase tickets for the event here. Proceeds benefit Catholic Charities of Dallas.
IIDA’s Lavish Auction will be held on Nov. 18 as well, from 7 to 11 p.mat 1250 Slocum St. Tickets are $50 for IIDA members and $75 for nonmembers, and proceeds from the sales, as well as from the auction sales, will go to Dwell with Dignity. A sample of the event’s auction items can be seen here. Also, make sure you snag a ticket to the event’s after party to keep the fun going after midnight.
