Join us for our 44th Annual Open House!
Fall is here! The leaves are changing, the air is colder and the rain is here to stay! For the staff of the Paddington Family of Stores, it means only one thing: preparations for Open House!! For the past 44 years, Paddington Station’s Open House has been a holiday tradition for many. It is the perfect way to kick off the start of your holiday season. Our three stores are decorated for the winter, our staff is festive and full of cheer, and music, the smell of wassail and happy chatter fills the air.
This year’s Open House will take place on Saturday, November 18th from 11am to 7pm.
“This is our gift to the community.” says co-owner, Pam Hammond. “It has grown over the years and we are so grateful to have our loyal customers who have allowed us to stay in business the past 44 years.”
Events, door prizes, children’s crafts, food samples and giveaways will be taking place in all three of our locations, but the main attraction will remain our flagship store- Paddington Station. As always, live music will take place at Paddington Station and this year’s line up will include our crowd favorites- the Siskiyou Singers, Ashland High School Choir, the Siskiyou Violins and the Ed Dunsavage Trio. We are excited to include two new groups- the Rogue Valley Children’s Choir and the South Medford High School Choir.
Throughout the day there will be fun, family activities on the main floor of Paddington- including old favorites Klutz, Play Visions and Plus Plus. Food sampling will take place on the mezzanine and main floor featuring Branson’s Chocolates, Lillie Belle Chocolatiers and more, and we will be serving chocolates, coffee, cookies and light finger foods. Representatives from Belle Fiore Winery, Vera Bradley, among others will be at the Paddington Jewel Box. Inspired By Oregon will be hosting our Pendelton sales representative and will be offer a variety of food samplings.
Paddington Station will be taking non-perishable food donations for the Ashland Emergency Food Bank. Our goal is to collect one ton of food! If every visitor to our Open House brings a canned food item, this goal will be very easily exceeded! Help us give the Food Bank an amazing gift this holiday season!
We hope to see you all on the 18th!
