Temporium coming to Winter Park from Nov. 25 to Dec. 3

Grand County Businesses Without Borders presents the second “Temporium – A Retail Experience” starting 4-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov 25., at Kings Crossing Center in Winter Park.

Daily hours after opening day are 11-7 p.m; the event continues until Saturday, Dec. 3.

On the last day of the Temporium, Dec. 3, hours are shortened from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The shopping opportunites are short-lived; thus the name Temporium – a play on the temporary aspect of this retail emporium.

As many as twelve participants will showcase their unique treasures during the eight days, such as denim bags, jewerly crafted from aluminum soda cans and locally made soap and lip balm.

Last year’s event was a huge success, according to organizer Francie de Vos. She is hoping to make this year as much fun for locals, visitors and second homeowners.

“This is their shot to purchase gifts they won’t find anywhere else,” she said.

The premise for this pop-up retail experience is to present the works of craftsmen and artists to shoppers the day after Thanksgiving and to encourage people in the county to shop local.

A professional merchandiser was hired to organize the store and inventory may vary depending on demand.

Each day will feature a special event. There will be a chocolate fountain on opening night, and Monday is a combined shopping and happy-hour special between the Temporium at King’s Crossing and Fontenot’s, Winter Park. Sunday is Nonprofit Night, with a variety of nonprofits featured, where Grand County Historical Association will sell one-of-a-kind winter carnival products, and the local P.E.O. group will sell handcrafted jewelry.
