For many, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. We all know about Black Friday and now many stores start big sales on the Wednesday before. I like to shop local whenever I can to support local artists and artisans. Two of my favorite holiday bazaars are scheduled for this weekend.
The Evanston Art Center is hosting its 11th Winter Arts and Crafts Expo at the Evanston Art Center, 2603 Sheridan Road in Evanston. Over 100 artisans will be selling their wares beginning tonight at the Preview Party.
I also love to shop the Galleria in Evanston which features all types of handmade items from over 40 different artisans.
Let me know if you attend any of these fairs!
