Deny all you want you perpetual procrastinators who populate our parts but truth is the shopping season has kicked off and nowhere is this more evident than the proliferation of bazaars, fairs craft shows,etc. making their appearance across the landscape.
Of course there is the Jingle Mingle known by area aficionados of such events as ‘The Big One’.
This arts and crafts extravaganza comes to the Fremont Middle School Saturday from 9am-3pm and if ever a place is to be known as a One Stop Shopping venue for all things Christmas and beyond, this is it.
The staff of N3 World Headquarters and Impending Christmas Decor Emporium are well acquainted with the JM. Few years have passed without the vehicle used to transport N3WH CEO Lil to the event returning packed to the gills with items acquired from the myriad of vendors that fill FMS each holiday season.There is a definite system to her JM shopping and I learned long ago to not attempt small talk or engage in distractions that might deter the strategy being employed to maximize vendor exposure.
So if you see a tall, aging gentleman with questionable posture as well as dubious clothing choices standing all alone holding several items and striving to refrain from wandering too far from the assigned spot?
Stop and say hello.
Fremont Christian Church, Cornerstone Christian Academy, and the White Cloud Fire Department are among the other places holding similar, if smaller, events.
The Gift Shop at the hospital is holding their annual open house from 10am-3pm. If you have never paid a visit to this little shop of wonders that resides in the confines of Gerber Memorial Saturday would be a great time to make your acquaintance.The inventory shifts continually and provides some great gifting opportunities from the major wrapped up in ribbon and bow presents to stocking stuffers sure to please those on your list.
Speaking of shopping we will once again look to feature local venues ready to help you complete your shopping list no matter how big or small that list might be. If you’ve a favorite shopping destination that involves a local zip code let us know and we will check it out.
And to spur along the whole Shop Local thing grab a bite at one of our fine local eateries this weekend.
