OXFORD – The twenty-first annual “Santa’s Secret Shoppe,” held on Saturday, Dec. 6, in the United Church of Oxford (UCO) was a resounding success.
This event was coordinated by the Brisben Doers, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, and the United Church of Oxford. Together they organized a child’s shopping room, an adult’s shopping room, a refreshments room, and a bake sale room. In addition, they had two door prizes for children and one for adults. Over 100 young shoppers, parents, and other adults, visited “Santa's Secret Shoppe” to do their holiday gift buying at low prices, befitting a child's wallet.
Having given their shopping lists much thought in the time leading up to the event, students came out en masse to do their holiday shopping. And since the students had predetermined amounts to spend on gifts, their thoughtful frugality became very clear.
