As part of their annual event, St. Brendan School is thrilled to host holiday favorite Solvang Bakery, as it makes the pilgrimage down to Hancock Park as one of the school’s boutique plus 30+ vendors.
On Friday, December 6, St. Brendan School will be holding their annual Christmas Boutique. This local favorite has become a holiday tradition with more than 30 vendors – including local artisans and local businesses – sharing their wares for the holiday season. This one stop shopping experience is one of the school’s most important fundraisers.
This year, the world famous Solvang Bakery will be loading up their trucks and hitting the road with their exquisite and personalized Gingerbread Houses, Cookies, and winter pastries, all the way from Solvang. “Their gingerbread houses are really works of art. We are thrilled that the Solvang Bakery is making the road trip down to the Hancock Park area for our school’s boutique. Not only will the kids go crazy when they see the gingerbread houses, but grown-ups will be transported to a nostalgic time when they see these candy houses!” says Boutique co-chairperson Lizzy Martinez. In addition to gingerbread houses, the bakery will be bringing some of their other holiday favorites only found at the Solvang bakery, including Danish butter cookies, gingerbread cookies, and kits to make your own gingerbread house.
The St. Brendan holiday boutique is a fun filled event, with over 30 fabulous vendors participating. Some of the returning vendors include Stella and Dot Jewelry, Provence inspired linens from Lavender Blue, Littlejohn’s Candies from the Original Farmer’s Market, and handmade cards from Pelhams Paperie. Many beloved Larchmont Boulevard stores will also be represented including Landis Labyrinth, Flicka, and Larchmont Village Florist.
Twenty percent of all proceeds will go to St. Brendan in support of classroom projects. In addition to all of the vendors, the school will also be selling live holiday greenery including large poinsettias, garland, and wreaths. “It’s really a wonderful event that not only brings the community together, but also allows people to knock so many items off their holiday to-do list—all at one time and for a great cause” says Martinez.
