If you’re trying to beat Black Friday and supporting interesting independent businesses, like, ummm, Three Stone Steps, you may want to check out Holly Fest at Friends School , at 5114 N. Charles Street, in Baltimore on Saturday, the 21st. It runs from 10am to 4pm, costs $5 to get in, and is jammed packed with vendors selling everything from jewelry to pottery to sweaters to artwork. If you’re looking for Three Stone Steps’ great fair trade, eco-chic items, you can find us in the new gym, about four spaces in from the door.
On Sunday, Three Stone Steps will be, once again, at the Baltimore Bazaar, right across the street from the big farmers market. (Honestly, if you’ve never been to the farmers market, you really should go since it’s great and lively and almost a big party. However, the Sunday before Thanksgiving–read this Sunday–is their biggest shopping day of the year.)
Hope to see you out at one of these events. Of course, you can always find Three Stone Steps online, and there are a few great items at the World of Good site, where, at long last, you can buy recycled newspaper and magazine Christmas ornaments.
