This year Flamingo kicked off the Holiday Season with a Shop, Sip and See at Dixie Landing. Floridan Mining Gallery artists Ashley Woodson Bailey and Jim Draper had their beautiful and original artwork on display while guests mingled with one another over cocktails and appetizers.
On Thursday evening, Jamie Rich, Editor In Chief of Flamingo, hosted a great group of Flamingo friends and readers for a VIP J.McLaughlin shopping event.
J.McLaughlin set the scene with a winter wonderland full of sweaters, furs and cashmere travel sets.
