Shopping Local for the Holidays

Here's some info on two local holiday shopping events this weekend. Spend your holiday dollars on Asheville sellers!

Faerie Made, local purveyor of natural, handmade soaps, perfumes and IMO the best lip balm on earth, is having an open house/sale at the studio/home of proprietor Tina Glenn:

6th Annual FBFC Tailgate Market Holiday Bazaar

20 Dec 2008

11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The French Broad Food Cooperative Tailgate Market presents:

The Sixth Annual Holiday Bazaar

Saturday, December 20th -- the French Broad Food Co-op Tailgate Market hosts the Sixth Annual Holiday Bazaar. Located next to the French Broad Food Co-op (FBFC) at 90 Biltmore Ave, in the Build it Naturally parking lot, the Six Annual Holiday Bazaar features vendors from the FBFC Tailgate Market, joined by vendors from the North Asheville Market, other surrounding tailgate markets, as well as area crafters. The idea is to provide holiday shoppers with high quality, local food and non-food based gift items. From wreaths to goat cheese, sustainably-grown Christmas trees, candles, preserves, artisan breads, fruit cake, honey, organic chocolates, fabric arts, soaps, and much more, sold by the person who grew or produced it, this Bazaar provides the opportunity to acquire meaningful gifts and give back to our community by buying local and direct.

The Bazaar will take place from 11:00AM to 4PM on Saturday, December 20th and will be accompanied with music by Jake Hollifield (of the Blue Rags and the Screaming Jays) and Woody Pines.
