Holiday Market Roundup: Where to Buy Gifts From Local Artists (Yup, We're Included)
Need unique and interesting holiday ideas? Athens always has great gifts from artists, especially at craft fairs near the end of the year. We'll be at the Indie South Fair Holiday Hooray — and we got a mention in Flagpole for it! Come find our booth and awesome prints.
Flagpole said: "Celebrating its 10-year milestone, Indie South Fair's Holiday Hooray offers a lineup of over 150 vendors—the most its ever hosted—covering virtually everything handmade, from original art in every medium, bath and beauty products, toys and sustainable fashion to artisanal food, home goods and furniture. Highlights include Appaloosa Jewelry, Pixel & Ink, Songbird Soaps, Rockbelly, Pale Blue Dot, Extollo Jewelry, My Athens and Oscar Bites. Indie South is unique from the majority of other markets in that it also incorporates a wide selection of collectors who focus primarily on vintage clothing and accessories. The two-day open-air market, which also promises music, food trucks and kids’ activities, takes place on Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. at 660 N. Chase St., just off Prince Avenue. Santa will visit for photo opportunities from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. on Saturday and all day Sunday. Representatives from Girls Rock Athens will offer a donation-based gift wrapping station. Admission to the market is $3, and free for ages 12 and under.
