Tis the season for shopping at the hospital

Deborah Wheeler
Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast's Guild Gift Shop stands ready to help with all your shopping needs.

If you haven't visited Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast recently, you've missed a shopping opportunity.

Every morning, the main floor hallway of the hospital is transformed into a Christmas shopper's paradise with tables full of unique gifts, holiday decorations, toys, nativity sets, an array of angels, inspirational treasures, costume jewelry, and collectibles -— something for everyone on your gift-giving list.

The shop's buyer, Barby Parks, spends all year searching for unique items for the gift shop.

The hospital gift shop is the endeavor of a non-profit fundraising program operated by volunteers of the hospital guild. Proceeds from sales support current and future hospital services.

Located across from the hospital's cafe, gift shop hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will be open for Christmas shopping through Dec. 20.
