Last Christmas, I spent weeks scouring the malls for the perfect gift for my daughter, trudging through cavernous parking garages and standing on lines that would rival the Dumbo ride at Disney World. Finally, on December 22, I found what I had long been searching for…and when I proudly presented it on December 25, she already had received the exact same one!
Did you ever notice that you can shop all day at the mall and never see anything “different?” Although the mall does present a convenient, cookie cutter style approach to shopping, many of us wish we had more time to explore local boutique, shops and crafters.
This year, however, will be different! You are invited to “keep it local” and visit the Holiday Marketplace at the Wyckoff YMCA on Saturday, November 5 from 10am-4pm. Over 30 unique and exciting vendors will be on hand with jewelry, scarves, pottery, folk art, pet accessories, hand-made wooden toys, clocks, quilts, watches, photography, belts, apparel, artwork, accessories and so much more!
Get fun, distinctive and beautiful gifts without leaving your own community. You might even see a friend or two while you are shopping…what’s better than that? Save your gas and energy and support the Y’s community initiatives while you shop. Get a free reusable shopping bag while supplies last!
