Woman's Exchange Bargains in the Garden
Saturday, September 19, 2020 — CANCELLED at Pena-Peck House
This event has been cancelled due to expected rain.
The Woman's Exchange is offering a special weekend sale, Bargains in the Garden, on Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13, 2020, at the Peña-Peck House. The sale will feature items that were already purchased to sell at the regular annual Woman's Exchange Spring and Fall Luncheons, which unfortunately had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Sunday, September 13, event was rained out, and has been rescheduled to Saturday, September 19, 2020.
Bargains in the Garden will take place from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. each day. The event will be managed to ensure safety, and customers are asked to wear masks.
The Spring and Fall Luncheons are a St. Augustine tradition, going back to the late 1940s, when local hotels reopened for tourists after World War II. The weekly luncheons at the Peña-Peck House became popular with visitors, both for the lovely garden atmosphere and the delicious food. The setting remains as beautiful as ever, and so does the food — in fact, most of the dishes on the menu are made with original recipes.
The Exchange shops feature hand-crafted products made by women from across the country, as they have been doing since 1892, when the National Federation of Woman’s Exchanges first encouraged them as a venue for hand crafters to sell their products. Seventy percent of the item sales go directly to the crafters, and the rest is used to maintain and promote the historic Peña-Peck House Museum. Some of the proceeds are also used to provide scholarships for women returning to school for career changes.
