The Oxford Exchange is one of the premiere shopping and dining destinations in Tampa. It’s also home to a brand new Candle Pour location. The venue has just announced the return of its holiday gift market. While it may seem too soon to get excited for the holiday season, the OE is hard at work organizing the event and they’ve just opened up applications for vendors. Interested vendors need to apply by October 1. In total, the event will feature 30+ vendors.
The 11th Annual OE Gift Bazaar will be held on Thursday, November 30th at 6:30pm–9:30pm at 420 West Kennedy Boulevard. This is the perfect opportunity for residents to shop and support local during the holidays. Even outside of the participating vendors, The OE has one of my favorite bookstores in all of Florida, in addition to an incredible market next to its restaurant.
A local shopping tradition in downtown Tampa
In 2013, they organized the first OE Holiday Gift Bazaar to promote interest in local vendors, crafters, and artisans. Inspired by eclectic and bustling European marketplaces, their space is transformed for one night out of the year into a diverse shopping venue, just in time for the holidays. The OE’s hope is to showcase the unique stories and creation of local talent with their own community and to continue doing so year after year.
