Books & crafts & food & friends!
On the Saturday before Christmas, don't join the crazy crowds at Walmart or at the mall. Instead, drop by a locally-owned, independent business that is hosting one of Athens's many annual holiday markets. The Flicker Holiday Market will be held December 19, 2009 from 11:00 AM - 5 PM. Never been to the Flicker Theatre & Bar? It's a lovely spot at 263 W. Washington Street in downtown Athens.
The items offered this year are especially varied. Jim Wilson & Don Chambers will have their famous pies for sale. Kate Mikulka will be offering up her well-reviewed Mikulka Polish Foods. There'll be bath and beauty products, Christmas ornaments, and more. For more details, please refer to the official event invitation. We're pretty lucky to live in a town where local folks can share their passions with us--let's take advantage of this opportunity to support the arts (and our tummies).
I'll be at the market selling however many books I can fit into my allotted space. I'll have new and used books and will be able to point you in the right direction if you're looking for gifts for yourself or for friends. For a sneak preview of what I'll be selling (or to order online before someone can buy up your favorite picks!), take a look at the website: http://tinyurl.com/AvidBookshop
Thanks, and happy holidays!
