In its biggest year yet, the 8th Annual North End Holiday Stroll brought out hundreds of shoppers on Friday night for revelry and shopping at neighborhood stores. Staying open late, shop owners welcomed residents and visitors with refreshments and discounts at over 20 boutiques, food/wine shops and studios in the North End. The shops were decorated for the holidays while “passports” guided shoppers around from store to store with the chance to win custom gift baskets.

Participating shops included old and new favorites – A Matter of Face, Cataldo Design Boutique, Cocoanuts, Christian Pleva Images, Ensemble, Heart & Sole, in-jean-ius, LIT Boutique, Luigi & Lola, Luke Aaron, Lulu’s Sweet Shoppe, North Bennett St. School, Officina 189, Salmagundi, Savas Studios, Sedurre, Shake the Tree, Sol Optics, Twilight & The Wine Bottega.
