Kew Gardens Holiday Crawl Started Sunday, Goes Through Dec. 10

Dec. 4, 2017 By Tara Law

Small businesses have banded together for the first annual Kew Gardens Holiday Shopping Crawl.

The crawl began Sunday and will run through until Dec.10, with approximately 35 businesses across the neighborhood offering special events, discounts, free offerings, demonstrations and raffles.

The Crawl is being organized by Grace Anker, owner of The Potter’s Wheel, as a means to promote small business during the holiday season.

Many local businesses have been holding their own individual events in recent years, but there has been nothing tying them all together, Anker said.

“The more we thought about what local businesses had to offer, the more it seemed like a missed opportunity,” Anker said.

About three dozen businesses have come together. They include:

Spa party 12/9 & 12/10, 11am to 8 pm, free services, demonstrations, beauty tips, consultations
