Shift Your Shopping

White Mountain Independent Stores


On November 1st, the ninth annual Shift Your Shopping holiday campaign will launch for the 2019 season, encouraging individuals and businesses to “shift” more of their holiday shopping, entertaining and dining to locally owned and independent businesses. The White Mountain Independents, along with twenty-six other businesses, organizations and networks in towns and cities throughout New Hampshire, kicked off this collaborative campaign last week. The campaign continues through December.

Shift Your Shopping’s mission is to “build a tradition that strengthens local economies, expands local employment, nurtures a sense of community and provides a more relaxed, fun and rewarding holiday shopping experience.” As part of the Shift Your Shopping festivities, throughout Thanksgiving Weekend, November 29 through December 1st, the White Mountain Independents will once again be celebrating Plaid Friday and Small Business Saturday and, new this year, shoppers can play along with the Shop Small and Win Big Game, which lasts all weekend into Monday. Everything is easy – simply follow the blue flags!

The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical

M&D at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse
2760 White Mountain Highway
North Conway, NH 03860


Performances 7:30pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday; 3:30pm Sunday
The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical by David Nehls and Betsy Kelso; Directed by Christopher Bellis
It’s holiday time down in Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), and everyone’s filled with warmth and beer. But when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. Be on hand as Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in an all-new, all-trailer-park musical! This companion to the original Great American Trailer Park Musical is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time – but with tinsel and Keg Nog.
