Local holiday sales and events this weekend

December 3, 2008

This is by no means a complete list of all the local fabulous sales and events this weekend.  However, the point is shop local, think local, support local:

  1. Keep money in your community to support schools, parks and more.
  2. Help the environment by shopping local: less sprawl, congestion, habitat loss & pollution.
  3. Keep your community diverse and unique by supporting independent businesses.

Saturday, December 6
Holiday Open House (Wallingford)
Wallingford Center
1815 N 45th St.

Stroll through the center’s merchant shops, experience local artists, eat sumptious nibbles, enter for a chance to win gift baskets, and listen to music.  Several shops including Pharmeca, crackerjack and Zanadia have eco-friendly candles, ornaments and small gifts.

Proceeds benefit the Wallingford Senior Center.

Each weekend this month, the Wallingford Center is featuring a different do-it-yourself craft project for your holiday decor and gift giving.  Check the events page for details.
Saturday, December 6
Punk Rock Flea Market Holidaze Edition (Belltown)
Underground Events Center
2407 1st Ave.
10am – 6pm

Don’t let the name fool you.  “Punk rock” is referring as much to the DIY spirit of the event as it is to any particular music or lifestyle.

A flea market selling everything you can imagine:
records, clothing, furniture, computers, stereo equipment, housewares, haircuts, toys, videos, bicycles, tacos, falafels, vegan treats, skateboards, political propaganda, information from non-profit groups, book stores, artists selling their work, bike repair, baby stuff, tarot readings & whatever else they can fit into the space.

Sounds like a smorgasborg for gifts ready for the second life with you and looks like they keep you fed while you’re shopping

All proceeds after space rental cost, etc. go to the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI), a non-profit organization that builds
homes for homeless and low-income people all around the Puget Sound.  LIHI has generously donated the space for PNFM to host their market.

Saturday and Sunday
20-50% off Holiday Sale (Shoreline)
One Earth One Design
143rd St. and Greenwood Ave.

If you can’t make it this weekend, the sale is all month long!  This is an eco lifestyle store so they have both home and body-related products. In recognition of the economic issues for many, they have drastically cut prices to make gift giving more affordable this time of year.
