At the grand opening of All Wrapped Up on Monday, there were plenty of trimmings to boost shoppers’ stamina levels. Urban Espresso served up festive cocoa and coffee, Hungry Bear Catering provided an array of petite sweets from around the world and carol singers crooned a soundtrack for the night. Elves were on hand to wrap goodies in custom Mill-branded tissue paper designed by Brittney Banks.

All Wrapped Up will run until Friday, December 18th, and as if anyone needed an extra reason to visit and shop…all proceeds from the pop-up will be going to Povertees, a non-profit social enterprise that uses fashion to employ individuals transitioning out of homelessness to work within a supportive community.
