The Whirl: Celebrate the Season

On Dec. 1, WALTER hosted its signature shopping event, Celebrate the Season. Set under twinkling lights within the airy main corridor of Raleigh’s Union Station, the festive evening was a welcome kick-off to the holiday season.

Hundreds of guests enjoyed Southern-inspired bites like ham biscuits and a spicy pimento cheese from Catering Works, alonside curated wines from Westgate Wine, beer from Wye Hill Brewing, and specialty craft cocktails from Young Hearts Distilling Company.

Local jazz musician Peter Lamb and friends provided the upbeat soundtrack while guests shopped from more than 30 booths offering an array of items, from Prodigal Handmade’s wood-crafted toys to Hyla Dewitt’s bright geometric earrings, to handbags from pongopanna, home goods from Spoonflower and The Fab Foo, stationery from One & Only Paper, art from Charlotte Russell Contemporary, and so much more. The guests were pleased to see so many of their favorite retailers, all in one place!

Thank you to our sponsors Fink’s Jewelers, Green Front Interiors & Rugs, Opulence of Southern Pines, and Duxiana for helping us make this festive evening possible
