Shop for Everyone on Your List

The Holiday Shops vendor selection team searches the country for unique goods and popular items that aren't readily available in the Milwaukee area. The result is a carefully curated selection of merchandise including apparel, jewelry, accessories, and home and holiday décor at every price point. Supporting family run businesses is also a goal when inviting new vendors to participate in Holiday Shops.

A Tradition of Volunteerism

More than 100 members of the Parents' Association plan, organize, promote, and staff the three-day event. Now in its fourth decade, this shopping event has a dual mission: fundraiser for USM and friend-raiser for the community. Money raised is allocated to specific 'wish list' items from school administration to support teaching and learning for all USM students.
