#ShopSmall all season long & enter our Holiday To-Do List contest

Show your loyalty and spread the #ROSlove to the many local Roslindale shops, salons, and restaurants all holiday season long.

This year, we encourage folks to find creative ways to support your local shops. This could mean shopping in person during the daytime on weekdays, shopping online, purchasing gift certificates, eating more takeout, etc.

Take part in our Roslindale Village Holiday To-Do List contest running from November 1st to December 31st 2020. Check off three boxes of each color, then send proofs of purchase (or posts when applicable) to manager@roslindale.net by December 31st to be entered to win a gift card to the Roslindale Village business of your choice!

Roslindale Village retails shops have lots of goodies in stock for the holidays, but they currently have limited capacity for shoppers inside their stores due to safety guidelines to slow the spread of coronavirus. If you're shopping in person, shop earlier in the season, on weekdays, and earlier in the day this year to help our retailers manage larger groups of shoppers and make the most of their open hours. 

Photo Opps with Mandee Made's Window Art

During the last two weeks in November, artist Mandee Rae Martin was out and about Roslindale Village painting windows at: Studio MFitChoice 24/7Shanti Restaurant, the RVMS Office, Mi FincaBlue Star RestaurantJoanne Rossman: Purveyor of the Unnecessary & the Irresistible, and Distraction Brewing, Co. These beautiful pieces will stick around throughout the holiday shopping season, and depending on the weather, may last even longer.  We invite you to take a photo of yourself (yes, it can be a selfie), of your family, your pet, or your kiddo - in front of any of the 8 window art pieces around the Square.

We have placed scan-able QR codes in each window to upload your photo, or you can click here to upload your photo. Once we receive it, we'll email you to coordinate a time you can pick up a #ROSlove gift bag from the RVMS office (4236A Washington Street.)
