The draw will be on St. Patrick’s Day, so maybe the luck of the Irish will do it for you. Then again, not everyone can be Irish, and not everyone can be lucky.
In any event, one lucky winner — Irish or otherwise — will take home a basket featuring wares from 16 different traders around town. The prize includes products, gift cards to businesses and restaurants, and a one-year family membership to the Ipswich Museum.
“It’s an example of what you might find in all of the shops,” said Ann Orcutt, owner of Antiques on South Main Street, who is displaying the basket in her front window.
There’s no charge. All participants have to do is fill out a ticket in one of the 16 participating businesses.

“It’s a token of appreciation to Ipswich for shopping with us during the pandemic and staying local,” Orcutt said.
The raffle was organized by the Ipswich Business Roundtable, which is set to celebrate its sixth birthday soon.
Participating businesses are: Heart & Soul, Salon Bogart, Betsy Frost Design, Zumi’s, Haircrafters, Hearts & Flowers, Cellar Door, Scott Networks, Tetreault Jewelers, Nails Etc., Cape Ann Botanicals, The Brown Dog, AnnTiques, Luxa Jewelry, DJ’s Variety, and Marcorelle’s.
