Join us for our 45th Annual ‘Open House’, on November 17th from 11am – 7pm! This family-favorite local tradition is the perfect kick-off to the holiday season.Prizes, giveaways, and product demos will be taking place at all 3 locations, but the main attraction will remain the flagship store, Paddington Station. Enjoy live music from the valley’s finest performers, including: Siskiyou Violins, Rogue Valley Youth Ensemble, Ashland High School’s Choir, South Medford High School’s Choir, Crater High School’s Choir, the Rogue Valley Symphonic Band Quartet and The Ed Dunsavage Trio.Throughout the day, there will be family activities on the main floor of Paddington, including create your own silly putty and create a ornament. Food sampling will take place on the mezzanine, and will feature Branson’s Chocolates, Lillie Belle Chocolatiers and more! There will also be a variety of desserts, finger foods, and coffee. For those 21 and over, Del Rio Winery will be sampling their wines at The Paddington Jewel Box, and Pendleton Whiskey will be sampled at Inspired By Oregon.The 45th Annual Open House is also a great way to give back to the community! Paddington Station has set a goal of collecting 1 ton of donations for The Ashland Emergency Food Bank, and will be thanking guests who donate an item of non-perishable food with a beautiful complimentary holiday ornament. Guests are also encouraged to participate in free hourly door prizes, and to sign up for one of 8 grand prize raffles, valued at $500 each.“This is our gift to the community” says owner Pam Hammond, “It has grown over the years and we are grateful to our loyal customers who have allowed us to thrive these forty-five years.”
