COOKEVILLE – The 17th Annual Mistletoe Market will usher in the holiday season with many area boutiques creating a festive shopping experience at the Leslie Town Centre. The two-day event will be held at One West First Street Friday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. in Cookeville’s Historic WestSide.
Goods and gifts from area boutiques will be available throughout the spacious aisles in the Estes Williams room on the main floor of the Leslie Town Centre. Along with shopping regional vendors, shoppers will have the opportunity to win door prizes by numerous local small businesses.
A silent auction, benefitting the Cookeville-Putnam County Animal Shelter will be on the main floor.
“We are thrilled to have our silent auction at Mistletoe each year,” Linda Westin, President of Friends of CPC Animals, said. “This is an exciting year as we continue to raise funds to help feed and promote animals for adoption at the Cookeville-Putnam County Animal Shelter. We hope all shoppers will stop by the silent auction to learn more about the Animal Shelter and volunteering opportunities – and bid on some wonderful items to help our shelter animals.”
