What is Shops?

This remarkable Main Line event is a 55-year-old tradition that brings together over 40 premier retailers from throughout the United States, attracting customers from Shipley's community and beyond. What's even better is you can feel guilt-free about splurging because 20% of every purchase benefits The Shipley School. Shop and support one of Shipley's biggest and most exciting fundraising events of the year. Open to the public!
The countdown to Shops has started so mark your calendars for October 20 - 22. For our 56th year we wanted to give you 56 reasons to come to Shops, but since no one wants to read a list that long, we have five reasons why you can't miss this year!

1. We have over 40 vendors and 20 are brand new to Shops.

2. 25 of our vendors don't have a brick and mortar store, so Shops in your ONLY chance to personally shop these unique boutiques.
3. This is one of Shipley's biggest annual fundraisiers! 20% of all proceeds go directly to Shipley, so every time you swipe at Shops you're contributing to developing students with a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world. Hooray for shopping that does good too!

4. Thursday, October 20 shopping hours are 10 am - 6 pm (so you can come after work!), Friday, October 21 shopping hours are 8:30 - 4:30 (so you can come after you drop off the kids at school!), and Saturday, October 22 shopping hours are 10am - 3pm (so you can come to our Fall Festival to buy pumpkins, pies, and goodies from Lapp Country Market!). 

5. Shops is open to the public and parking is free, so there is really no reason to not go!
