“”A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!” Which all the family re-echoed. “God bless us every one!” said Tiny Tim, the last of all.” From A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
The spirit of Dickens lives on in modern day Mansfield with Downtown Mansfield, Inc.’s annual operation of the Tiny Tim Shoppe, a place where kids can shop for the people in their lives. This volunteer assisted Christmas shop is for children ages 12 and under, with gifts priced at $6.00 or less. Participating children fill out a shopping list with the help of their parents, and then are escorted through the shoppe with a volunteer who assists in making their selections. The volunteer then helps the children gift wrap and tag each gift before they leave the shoppe.
Upcoming dates for the Tiny Tim Shoppe at 124 North Main are:
Friday, December 2 from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Saturday, December 3 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 pm
Saturday, December 10 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Saturday, December 17 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
For more information, please contact Downtown Mansfield, Inc. at 419-522-0099 or email@example.com. This year’s sponsor for the Tiny Tim Shoppe is Richland Bank.
