Shop Local — Support Local Trunk Show & Holiday Charity Event

Local VendorsBring along your shopping list this Sunday, December 6 (4 p.m.- 8 p.m), and browse one-of-a-kind gifts from the area’s trendiest fashion boutiques and local vendors. Think of it as a local indoor market for all things fashion, arts, crafts and of course culinary treats! Spa Evangeline’s last trunk show was a huge success, bringing in over 300 guests, and this one is just in time for all of your holiday shopping!

Why would the Epicurean Hotel and Spa Evangeline partner with local vendors for a trunk show?
Christina Lema, Spa Manager at Spa Evangeline explains her view on the uniqueness and importance of the event, “The Epicurean Hotel’s roots in Tampa are undeniable. The Shop Local, Support Local Trunk Show was born from a desire to showcase all of the amazing local vendors and boutiques in our beautiful city. We are honored to celebrate the idea that with time, commitment and hard work you can make your dream of owning a small business come to life!”

Lemonade It’s all about being committed to connecting guests with our local community and that synergy keeps guests and locals alike returning for more. It goes back to our roots, really. The Epicurean Hotel was designed and developed with the neighborhood in mind, showcasing exciting outlets that include everything from a world-class wine shop, rooftop bar, food-inspired spa, vintage confectionery, a signature restaurant and let’s not forget the decked-out culinary classroom. All who visit, for whatever reason it may be, are encouraged to Awaken Appetites Unknown.

There’s no doubt that Tampa Bay is a unique and vibrant destination to live, work and play. A destination as unique as it’s businesses. The businesses at our Trunk Show are not chain concepts, but rather trendsetters, trailblazers and entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves as exceptional treasures that make our community better. It’s only fitting that this event is held at the Epicurean, a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel.
