felt-handmade-christmas-crafts-holiday-decorations-1Still have stockings to stuff or last minute gifts to grab? Then you need to “join the mob” this holiday shopping season with Elgin Young Professionals Network.

On Wednesday, December 10, EYPN invites you and yours to their Holiday Cash Mob from 4-9pm at the Tinsel Pop-Up Shop, 13 Douglas Avenue, 2nd Floor in downtown Elgin above the brand new Solo restaurant and wine bar.

This year’s Tinsel Pop-Up Shop will feature multiple vendors and artisans offering unique handmade crafts and other holiday gift ideas and décor.

Cash Mobsters are asked to attend and spend at least $20 to support the local businesses. Soulful Sparrow, 10 Douglas Avenue, and Elgin Knit Works, 8 Douglas Avenue, will also be open across the street that evening to fulfill all of your holiday shopping needs.

NEWLY ADDED! As an additional Christmas bonus, Solo restaurant and wine bar will offer an exclusive Holiday Wine Tasting - taste 15 different wines for only $15 – as well as discounted appetizers to all participating EYPN Cash Mobsters from 5:30-8:30pm. Here’s to making your shopping day merry and bright with a Solo wine tasting flight!

EYPN coordinates and promotes these Cash Mobs throughout the year as a way to recognize and support the local businesses that provide Elgin with its character, economic partnerships and genuine customer service.

Be sure to tell your friends and family to join us for a night of shopping small with EYPN in downtown Elgin.
