Do you want to know a secret? Some of Montgomery County’s cutest little shops and out of the way spots for shopping are ready to welcome you during the 2018 Best Kept Secrets Tour, held through Nov. 10th. The event, designed like a home or garden tour, includes dozens of off-the-beaten path stops for starting your holiday shopping.
Hit the back roads and discover unique stores and businesses that you may not have known about. Up to 35 businesses participate each year, offering perks, coupons, discounts, seasonal refreshments, etc. to customers who stop by their shop during the approximately two week tour run. Business participants include home good and furnishing stores, farm markets, galleries and studios, wineries, cafes, and shops featuring clothing, jewelry, hand-sewn items and more.
Begun in 2008, The Best Kept Secrets Tour serves to bring new customers into small, local businesses. Shoppers purchase a $10 ticket to receive the tour map, which indicates the locations for each participating stop. Your ticket entitles you to go anywhere on any day through Nov. 10. Visit as many shops as you like.
