Shop Local, Shop Handmade this Holiday Season!

My fellow New Orleans Craft Mafia members are once again teaming up to provide you with unique last-minute handmade holiday shopping, and this year we’re offering an extra chance to shop local!

On Thursday, December 20th from 5-9pm you can join us for our 7th Annual Last Stop Shop holiday marketplace at The Big Top (1638 Clio Street, between St. Charles Avenue and Carondelet Street).

We’re once again offering a chance to win a Christmas tree full of handmade holiday ornaments, plus there will be additional giveaways to be won! This year we’re starting an hour earlier, to make it easy to stop by right after work.

We’ll have free snacks, plus a cash bar, to help you get your last-minute holiday gifts in order. Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soap Works will also be on hand to help you make your own holiday gift soaps! (PLUS, I’m trying to wrangle a few Stormtroopers to make an appearance!!)

One week prior, you can also find us in the heart of the St. Claude Arts District for a new Downtown Holiday Market. We’ll be at Byrdie’s (2422A Saint Claude Avenue) on Thursday, December 13 from 8-11pm, where we’ll be joined by some of Byrdie’s own resident clay and ceramics artists. We’ll also have free drinks, courtesy of Lost Love Lounge / Bon Castor, and free snacks for a very festive atmosphere!
