Shoppers attended Jingle and Mingle on Nov. 12, a shopping event organized by the Service League of Natchitoches. The event featured pop up vendors, ranging from local crafters to local shops and a spa. The attendees enjoyed food and cocktails while shopping in the Prud’homme-Roquier House’s historic setting. Natchitoches’ iconic Miss Merry Christmas, her Christmas Belles and the Christmas Angels made an appearance with the Christmas Angels singing for the crowd. After the food, friendship and entertainment, the shoppers went on to visit Front Street merchants who extended their opening hours for the private shopping event.
The Jingle and Mingle was sponsored by the active members and sustainers of the Service League of Natchitoches to raise funds for the preservation of the Prud’homme-Rouquier House as well as other philanthropic endeavors throughout the community. The event was a superb way to support a worthy cause, get some early holiday shopping done in a fun atmosphere and support local small businesses.
