VisitMartinsville is launching a holiday shopping initiative next week in efforts to promote the numerous craftspeople and shops in Martinsville – Henry County and some of the unique products and experiences available locally.
The advent calendar – style campaign will be launched on the VisitMartinsville Facebook page on Tuesday, November 26th, and each day the VisitMartinsville team will reveal one local shop and a unique gift that can be purchased from that location. Throughout the duration of the 25 days, VisitMartinsville will also be doing giveaways from some of the stores being showcased. You could choose to keep this for yourself or give as a wonderful gift this holiday season. We encourage you to stay tuned for more to come and the chances to win.
