Hundreds of visitors strolled Bastrop’s historic downtown business district Sunday, Nov. 16, for the annual Bastrop Open House. Merchants around the square opened their doors and invited the public in for afterhours browsing, holiday entertainment, and more than a little Christmas cheer.

Bastrop retailers Seligman’s, Steve’s Jewelry, and the Market joined other downtown anchors, such as A’Michaels, Antiques and Accents, and Whit’s Pharmacy. In addition, Arnett Jewelry, Freckled Frog, Limetree Boutique, Flower Tree, and Pearce Pharmacy also received visitors.

While browsing, shoppers were treated to light hors d’oeuvres, hot chocolate, and spiced apple cider. The annual holiday open house is celebrated each year as a kickoff to the busy Christmas shopping season. The event encourages residents and visitors alike to “shop local” and support home-grown businesses.
