Local Businesses Provide a Fun Twist on Secret Santa with their "Finders, Keepers" Gift Bag Event

Some little extras will be scattered around town this week in hopes of spreading some extra holiday cheer over Brighton. Taking the lead from a recent Coopers & Binkley promotion, three local businesses created thirty gift bags filled with goodies that will be left in thirty area business establishments. Where will they be?  That’s for the finders to find. Once they find, they keep!  

Gift Bags

"We just wanted to add a special element of fun and surprise to the season, especially with the economic climate the way it is," says Joanne Giardini of NuStar Insurance Agencies, the brains behind this project.  “A friend had stumbled upon a small jewelry box containing earrings from Coopers & Binkley as they celebrated a store event.  I loved the idea immediately and felt it would be something fun to spread around the community – especially during the holidays.”

Giardini enlisted the help of two local colleagues, Larry Patzsch of RE/MAX Platinum and Kathi Presutti, owner of RE:STYLE Home Staging and Redesign, to help out.  The trio gathered small gift items from Biggby Coffee, Stillwater, Brighton Little Caesar’s, Rainbow Car Wash, Just So!, Shine Salon and Beaver Island Jewelry.  Giardini, Patzsch and Presutti will distribute the thirty gift bags to local establishments later this week. 

“We’re hoping that whomever finds these gifts will simply smile and feel lucky!” says Giardini. Let the games begin!
