Growing up I’ve been lucky to live in a home that adores Christmas. More specifically, my mother adores decorating for Christmas. Some years the decorations would be going up immediately after Halloween, with a blink of an eye, BAM! Christmas broke out into our home. It was awesome.
Here's a couple shots of my moms current decorations!
Just like my mom, I also love this time of year. The decorations, the delicious treats, the beautiful music, the fun parties, every aspect of it. It really is the most wonderful time of the year! However; by far my favorite part would be all the markets that pop up. I enjoy going to them with friends and seeing what I can find. Thus, in spirit of the upcoming holidays and my favorite part about them I’ve compiled a list of local craft fairs & markets for you.
