2021 Holiday Shopping Guide Information

2021 Holiday Shopping Guide Information

Posted September 7th, 2021 by Blaine Garrett

Every year, MPLSART publishes a Holiday Shopping Guide to make it easy for our audience to give the gift of art. Our guide is a curated list of up to 20 local galleries, artists, and businesses hosting in-person or virtual holiday art sales.

This year's holiday shopping season is going to be unlike any other. Shoppers are going to be starting earlier, shopping local, and looking for convenient and safe in-person experiences to avoid proposed shipping delays.  

As a lot of holiday sales went virtual last year, many pop-up markets and single-day events will be returning this year. However you’re going to structure your holiday sale, details are key and promotion is important. MPLSART is here to help.

Since the holiday shopping season is starting sooner this year, we’re launching the MPLSART Holiday Shopping Guide November 1st — earlier than normal to give shoppers plenty of time to shop and businesses plenty of time to deliver.
