What's a "Passport"?
A Passport is what you need to be entered to win any of the grand prizes. (See Passport image here.) Pick up a Passport from any of the ten shops - start anywhere on the route. At each stop, have the
In what order do I hop?
You can start anywhere along the route - all the stores have passports to give out. You can start anywhere, go in any order, and drop off your completed passport at any of the stores.
Which stores are ShopHop shops?

The stores include: Vickery Hardware, Nest Gifts & Garden, Heart and Sole, Love Street Gifts, Going Gear, Rev Coffee, Jonquil Sporting Goods, Floral Creations,Wallpaper & Stuff, Nutrition King & Oasis
When can I hop?
The ShopHop 2014 is being held on Friday and Saturday, September 26 & 27. You can use the whole time to get your passport stamped, or do it all in one day. It starts Friday whenever the first store opens and ends at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
When are the prizes drawn?
When the ShopHop is over at 6 on Saturday, we'll collect all the completed Passports. The entries will be checked to make sure each stamp is present and the entry is legible. Then a drawing will be held to determine the Grand, Second and Third prizes. You will be contacted that night if your passport is drawn. (So be sure your contact information is correct and legible!)
How many Passports can I enter?
Only one Passport per person. You cannot have your friend's passport stamped for them - they need to go to each shop themselves.
What are the restrictions?
Anyone can hop!! Anyone can get a Passport and have it stamped. But you must be at least 16 to enter your passport into the drawing.
Why else is the ShopHop great to do?
Hoppers always say how much fun it is, to get out and "compete." You meet and interact with your local business owners as well as other shop-hoppers in your community. Plus, shops have giveaways, and special deals for ShopHoppers.
Christmas is only 12 weeks away!
What better way to work through your list AND have fun doing it?
