BELMAR, NJ — Serenity by the Sea Too is celebrating Independence Day with a "pop-up" extravaganza. The popular Belmar galleria at 1004 Main Street will host its first-ever Summer “Sip & Shop” Soiree, which continues today, July 1 through July 4.

Showcasing creations, crafts and unique merchandise of participating vendors, the event will begin at 10 a.m. each day, culminating with an exclusive evening of shopping, wine-tasting and light refreshments from 4 to 8:30 p.m. During the ‘Sip & Shop’ part of each day, a portion of sales will 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. “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.”
