On Sunday, November 27, 2022, the Museum Store at the Vero Beach Museum of Art is thrilled to participate in Museum Store Sunday, an annual holiday shopping day supporting cultural institutions and their stores. This year, more than 1,800 museum stores representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, 24 countries, and five continents will celebrate Museum Store Sunday and offer unique gifts for the holiday season—with all purchases supporting its parent institution and the artisans and craftspeople who create many of the gifts found in museum stores.
During this day, as part of the VBMA participation in Museum Store Sunday, shoppers will be offered a special 20% off* all store-wide merchandise on this one day. Each purchase supports the mission and programs of the Museum.
“We are delighted to be participating in Museum Store Sunday,” said Barbara Dunn, VBMA Museum Store Manager. “This year, we are excited to showcase our broad assortments of unique, mission-related gifts and invite everyone to “Be A Patron” with every purchase from our Museum Store directly supporting the educational mission of the Vero Beach Museum of Art. We also want to remind shoppers that Museum admission is not required to shop the store.”
Patricia Sampson, President of the Museum Store Association’s Board of Directors, continued, “Museum Store Sunday is an opportunity for the community to support their local cultural institutions simply by doing their holiday shopping at their museum stores. Patrons will find a collection of unique, educational, and creative items in these museum stores – gifts you can’t find anywhere else, and gifts that everyone on their list will love. By shopping on Museum Store
Sunday, you’ll not only find the perfect holiday gifts for your friends and family, but you can also know that your dollars are directly supporting the cultural institution’s mission and programs. It’s a way to shop consciously, shop smart, and shop local.”
Shoppers can look forward to Museum Store Sunday as the global annual day to Be a Patron – and support museum stores and their missions worldwide. While there is only one Museum Store Sunday each year, everyone is encouraged to Be a Patron of museums and museum stores all year round.
