Cornwall Ontario (ChooseCornwall.ca) – One of the year’s most anticipated events is finally here. Dozens of artisans and merchants will gather amongst the apple trees at Marlin Orchards for the Trunk Sale & Pamper Me Party.
This will be the 5th year that We3Girls & Co. (Debbie Burns, Julie Hickman, Nancy Sylvester, Tony Lacroix) have organized the popular event, which runs Sunday, November 2nd from 10 am until 4 pm. 2000 people are expected to attend.
“We’re really looking forward to this year’s event, which promises to bigger and better than ever before!” says Ms. Burns. “It is our goal to offer the ultimate shopping experience.”
Each merchant will have a table in the expansive greenhouses at Marlin Orchards, located just east of Cornwall on Country Road 2. There will be something for everyone, with original art and pottery on display, as well as goods from local merchants and manufacturers. Local restauranteurs will be offering up tasty samples including Bar Q, Schnitzels, Kelsey’s, Love Love Food & Joe’s Place.
“We personally select the vendors in attendance and focus on covering all of the bases so that no matter whom you are shopping for, you will indeed find that perfect gift,” says Ms. Burns. “Our most popular vendors are returning but we also have several new faces this year.”
A portion of each sale will go to the Cornwall Chapter of the MS Society. To date, We3Girls & Co. have raised over $40,000 for the charity.
“This is always a great fundraiser for our team,” says says Karen Torrie-Racine, Volunteer Office Manager with the MS Society.
This year will feature an expanded parking area, with golf-cart shuttle service from your car to the doors, courtesy of Summerheights Golf Links.
