BELMAR, NJ — Serenity by the Sea Too's first-ever Summer “Sip & Shop” Soiree will culminate today, July 4 with a full day of "pop up' shopping and an evening of wine-tasting and light refreshments.

The popular Belmar gift galleria at 1004 Main Street is hosting the event, which begins at 10 a.m. with a showcase of handcrafted treasures, light and breezy apparel and unique merchandise. And from 4 to 8:30 p.m., the final "Sip & Shop"  portion will end the five-day extravaganza, with a portion of sales to benefit Belmar First Aid Squad.

“As Belmar enters this exciting summer season, we are pleased to present this first in a series of our Summer Soiree events,” said Serenity by the Sea Too owner Sarah Taylor Izzo, who was featured yesterday in a WABC7 Eyewitness News segment on Belmar.  “Stop by for some great shopping and vendors — all for a great cause. And while you’re here, enjoy a glass of wine, tasty nibbles and good conversation.”
