Get Started on Your Holiday Shopping with These Markets (and Come Say Hi to Me!)

The holiday season is indeed approaching (I know, I know). I’m not the only one with a calendar that’s already getting jammed, so I wanted to get these two shopping events on your radar. Join me and let’s celebrate the holidays by avoiding the mall and supporting local purveyors of good stuff. On Saturday December 1st, check out the Meet Market at ~BLUXOME STREET WINERY~. There will be a whole bunch of local vendors, including yours truly, the tablehopper. That’s right, I’ll be there, hawking my books and fun vintage T-shirts, so come say hi and check ‘em out. 1pm-6pm. 53 Bluxome St. at 4th St.

And on Friday December 7th from 1pm-6pm, ~LA COCINA~ will be throwing their fourth-annual Gift Bazaar at the Crocker Galleria, so put that on your calendar too. Yes, I’ll be there as well. More details coming soon! 50 Post St. at Montgomery.
