After a year off, life without the Lake Charles Junior League's Mistletoe and Moss Market just wasn't the same. Yes, I will admit freely that this is one of my favorite holiday events each year. I like to be bougie and go to the Friday night cocktail night and get a little dressed up and shop for things I didn't know I needed until I saw it!

This year, it is back and tickets are on sale now for the market. They will open their doors early starting Friday, November 19 at 9:00 am for their "Premier Shopping". The tickets for the first morning of shopping are $25 and you not only get to be the first one to see what all there is to offer, but you even get a free glass of champagne as you walk in!

Friday night is when you can be bougie and enjoy their "Sip and Shop" event. This is THE event to enjoy. Enjoy free hors d'oeuvres and 2 free cocktails as you walk around and shop with family and friends. There will also be live entertainment as you make your way around the floor to shop for "all the things". Tickets to the "Sip and Shop" are $30 per person.
