Local Holiday Shopping Take 2!

 

If you haven’t had enough holiday shopping- before the actual holidays, then here is another dose of Triangle/Piedmont area Holiday markets and Christmas Bazaars for your hand made, specialty item to stun the folks on your shopping list.

If you are a live or die Black Friday shopper consider stepping out of your comfort zone to find something unique while supporting local crafters. Just a reminder, if hand-made isn’t your thing, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Busy Saturday so extend your shopping spree and check out the shops in your local downtown for free samples, sales, snacks and more!

Check out a sampling of the market schedules below. But first, here are a few tips to make your shopping experience a little easier- especially for first timers:

  1. Come early or plan ahead to find good parking! A lot of markets are in areas that don’t have a lot of free parking.
  2. Bring your own bag. Not only is this environmentally friendly but a lot of small vendors won’t have the time or resources for bags.
  3. Bring cash. In crowded markets, it is much faster as most vendors will be using Squarespace which takes a little longer to process credit transactions.
  4. Bring a friend! It is way more fun to share in the holiday spirit!
