Let everyone else coming to the party bring a bottle of wine. You, instead, can bring a wine bottle holder that matches the interests and tastes of your host or hostess. Beyond the Wine Rack (Building 1E) is full of gifts, décor, and wine accessories, including some of the coolest wine bottle holders.
Everything they sell seems to have character. It’s the perfect place to find something unique that will fit your host or hostess’s personality. And most importantly, when you give your host or hostess something from Beyond the Wine Rack, no one will sigh and say, “Another bottle of wine.”
Record players are popping up in homes everywhere. And what party doesn’t have music? Even if your host/hostess doesn’t own a record player, album covers are sought-after wall art these days. You don’t get liner notes or cover art with an MP3 or streaming service. Only good old vinyl gives you that.
New Egypt Comics, Vinyl, & Video Games (Building 5E) has the market’s biggest selection of records in a wide range of genres. Plus, most shops at the New Egypt Flea Market Village have a stash of records. If New Egypt Comics, Vinyl, & Video Games doesn’t have the album you’re looking for, just keep peaking inside the shops until you find it.
Why let some company pick what goes in a gift basket? You know the host/hostess’s favorite jams and jellies...or if they have a taste for BBQ sauce instead. At Jersey Girl’s Produce and Seasonal Items (Building #49) you can fill up your own Grab n’ Go Gift Basket. Not only do you get to pick just the right flavors, you also gett TammySue’s award winning, locally made jars of deliciousness.
Once you’ve filled your gift basket for your host/hostess, you can even fill a tray of hand baked cookies or pick out some of TammySue’s fudge for everyone to munch on at the party.
Who doesn’t have a favorite candy or love peanuts? These nifty peanut and candy dispensers are handmade here in Ocean County by R&D Wood Creations and you can find them at The Poetry and Arts Barn (Building 12E). They can fit Skittles, unshelled nuts, jelly beans, and other candies as big as peanut M&M’s.
Fill one up with your host/hostess’s favorite little candy or nuts. They’ll love it year-round. And you’ll always know what to get them for the next party...a refill of their favorite candy or nuts.
Break away from the traditional gift basket and give your host/hostess a holiday stocking full of surprises. Christmas stockings are a favorite for everyone. It’s one gift with bunches of gifts inside.
To fill your stockings, stop by one of the newest shops in the Village, 20 and Below (Building 25). It’s stocking stuffer central. Everything is new, organized, and there’s everything from the practical to the whimsical for men, woman, and children. You can pick a theme, fill it with tool and supply items, or go with hats and gloves...there’s so much at 20 and Below you’ll probably fill a few stockings.
If you want to go with something a little more traditional, take a look inside another new store at the Village, Butterflies and Heliotrope (Building 10E). Two retired florists have just opened up a shop here and they’ve brought in a beautiful selection of wreaths, wall plaques, and gift sets. It’s the perfect place to find something heartfelt and handmade.
The New Egypt Flea Market Village is open every Wednesday and Sunday from 8 am to 2pm, year-round, rain or shine. We’re one of the last of the old-time markets featuring 40+ buildings each an independently run shop, plus plenty of table vendors with everything from antiques, vintage toys, furniture, handcrafted goods, homemade jams and jellies, great bargains on new items, and thrifty second-hand finds.
