PEORIA (25 NEWS) - Shoppers looking to get a head start on the holidays came out to the second day of “Tinsel the Town” at East Peoria’s Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino Saturday.

Shoppers got to browse around nearly 100 local small businesses.

Shoppers also got to enjoy food and holiday cocktails to enjoy while stocking up on gifts and other goodies.

Kourtney Green, CEO of GKB Candle Co. said she’s happy to be apart of the event, which was cancelled last year, and meet new customers.

“You never know when you’re making something and putting it out there how other people will like what you do,” Green said.

“But then when you see people’s faces when they smell the candles and they say ‘I’m buying this for someone,’ that’s a rewarding feeling,” she added.

Small Shop Hop & Tinsel the Town’s will host another pop-up shop at Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino in April 2022.
