Village At Wexford's Best of Everything Contest

Author: Special To C2 Magazine | Photographer: Photography by Anne

When is the last time you were recognized for your talents or a special skill? Perhaps in middle school you won a blue ribbon for playing the best triangle. Or maybe you won a trophy once for bowling. Your best traits might come out whenever you are with family or friends…even at work. You might be the best listener on the planet. People might tell you how great your smile is or how your love of animals inspires them. You might be notorious for making people laugh, roasting the best oysters or mowing the lawn!

Want to nominate someone else because you appreciate his or her uniqueness? Does he make you smile? Does she bring you cookies or always remember your birthday? The Village at Wexford wants to honor the best in everyone.

Share what makes you or someone else “the best” with a nomination in the Best of Everything Contest!

With over 25 award-winning shops, ranging from exclusive clothing, jewelry, home accessories, gifts and fine dining to luxurious pampering and more, there can be no doubt that the Village at Wexford is the premier destination for spending a relaxing day on Hilton Head.

“We just feel that the Village at Wexford is the best of everything because of the people who visit our shops,” said Patricia Owen, owner of FACES DaySpa. “We believe that everyone is the best at something. The merchants in the Village at Wexford use what they do best to make the Village at Wexford special, and we want to recognize that in the fantastic people in our community. Best of all, we want to give one lucky person a huge shopping spree worth over $4,500 to reward them for their unique talent with some much deserved shopping, dining, and pampering.”

Great rewards await the winner to celebrate your best talents! For example, fine quality Cole Haan shoes from Teague’s Men’s Store, being treated like a king or queen for the day with a spa treatment from FACES DaySpa, enjoying a fine night of dining at Robert Irvine’s EAT!, followed by some smooth jazz at the Jazz Corner. A makeover from The Hair Designers would go fabulously with your new Ray Ban sunglasses from Paul’s Optical and VIP shopping spree.

“With so many chain stores popping up where everything is part of a corporate package, it is important to us that visitors realize that the Village at Wexford is extraordinarily unique,” said Wally Smith, owner of Smith Galleries and president of the Village at Wexford Merchant’s Association. “We want everyone to enjoy the value of a leisurely stroll through the Village while they experience fine shopping, dining, and pampering again. It is the very essence of Hilton Head.”

In 100 words or less, tell us what you or someone you know is the best at doing. It could be something serious like organizing meetings or something silly like taking out the trash! Submit your entry online at CelebrateHiltonHead.com between February 1 and February 15. One winner will be chosen at random.

  1. My dad is the best. He takes me and piper and wes fishing every saturday. We get to play with the bait. We get to run in the grass. We never catch anything. I can bring whatever I want with me and I bring my make up. My brother and sister like to hold the bait fish. We never catch anything. My dad is the best dad in the world. My name is Zoe Lucas. My dad should win because he is the best fisherman I know.
