Personally I hate that the holiday season–at least its commercial side–appears to start earlier and earlier every year. We’ve barely wiped off our Halloween makeup when the television ads and newspaper circulars start flying at us full force.
That being said, the holidays are indeed upon us and they do necessitate buying gifts so it’s time to get organized, people. Certainly our Jewish chums need to get on the ball, because Hannukkah starts in just a little more than a week! Yes, it’s Thanksgivukkah–brought to you by a calendar clash that happens once in a gazillion years.
So way before there are stockings to stuff, there will be eight nights of gifts to be given. And here in New York, there are a bunch of seasonal craft fairs throughout the city where you can find unusual and cool gifts.
The Grand Central Holiday Fair is open every day–and blessedly indoors, which is such a plus on a chilly day. Seventy six vendors will be hawking ornaments, clothing, jewelry and home decor items.
The Union Square Holiday Market viagra no prescription isn’t open until the 21st, but it will be open seven days a week through December 24th. Not only can you get wonderful crafts, but you can stock up on produce and meats at the Farmer’s Market.
The Bryant Park Holiday Shops features more than 120 artisans and merchants from around the world through January 5th.
And finally, when it opens on December 3rd, the Columbus Circle Holiday Market will feature over a hundred vendors and a wide selection of unique and handmade gifts.
