SAVE THE DATE: Nov. 21 – Join Us for Our 10th Anniversary Celebration

We’re celebrating our 10th Anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Join the celebration at The Crossings at Inlet Beach near Rosemary Beach, where we’ll celebrate with our favorite artists, authors, supporters, and art lovers during our one-day event. 

We want to thank all who have supported us over all the last 10 years. This year has been filled with challenges, but we’ve found silver linings everywhere we look. We’re honored to be a source of positivity and inspiration among our clients and beyond through our bright, happy art, original jewelry, inspirational books and thoughtful gifts. We hope you’ll be able to come out and join us for this special celebration.

Our anniversary celebration will include light bites and libations throughout the day in an expanded space that will allow for social distancing. In addition, we’ll be hosting some of our favorite artists, authors and musicians whose work is represented in the gallery. Here are some highlights:

Artist Polli Youngbeck will be on hand painting an original commemorative artwork that will be available for sale at the end of the day.

Chris Alvarado, award-winning musician and luthier, will be unveiling his newest project—handcrafted wooden trays. Building upon his signature custom guitars, which are renowned for their detailed wooden inlays, Chris is introducing a collection of curated trays that celebrate the communities of 30-A.

We’ll also have our friends from 30A Candles, 30A Olive Oil, and Coastal-inspired Jewelry by Mary Dilley Designs on hand with their latest offerings and great for gifts or for your home. 

Charles Schneidewind, children’s book author, will join us for storytelling and a book signing during the event. 

His children’s book, Legend of the Tooth Ogre, is a fun-loving bedtime tale of the tooth ogre and his partnership with the tooth fairy. 

Health and safety of our artists and guest are at the forefront and we’ll be making use of the expanded space next door at the former Drift store as well as using space outside the gallery. Masks are required for all guests and participating artists. For those who cannot attend in person, we’ll be celebrating virtually with an online Anniversary Event on our website and Facebook page. 

Visit our website and shop “New to view the latest offerings by participating artists’ works, and new items for sale. To bring the event to your home, we’ll stream some of our featured artists and their work LIVE on The Blue Giraffe Facebook page at 1 p.m. CST as well as share highlights on our Instagram page.

We hope you’ll join our celebration either in-person or online as we celebrate our love of Art & Gifts with Heart!

As avid animal lovers, we are supporting Alaqua Animal Refuge. Attendees are invited to donate collars, leashes, cat and dog toys, and dog sweaters of all sizes.

The 10th Anniversary Event will be held at The Blue Giraffe at 13123 E Emerald Coast Parkway, Inlet Beach, FL 32461 on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information, follow The Blue Giraffe (@bluegiraffe30a) on Facebook, Instagram, or check back with us here at
