unique holiday shoppingDecember 15, 2011
Holy crap, Christmas is like 10 days away. How does time go by so quickly? If you haven’t finished your holiday shopping and you are looking for some unique alternatives, I have some suggestions. You can find Darling Octopus goods at both – small stuff at Bizarre Market and lots of furniture at Virginia Street Gallery. Happy shopping!
Bizarre Market – located in the upstairs gallery at Chop Suey Books in Carytown, this little seasonal shop is a must see. Over 50 local artist selling their small stuff. I count on Bizarre Market for all of my stocking stuffers and really special, unique gifts.
Virginia Street Gallery – Part of the Market Umbrella, and a bit of an extension of the South of the James farmers market, this large gallery space features a wide range of artisans. Everything from dulce de leche cookies, to paintings, to pottery to furniture. Quirk gallery also has a little space there filled with cute goodies. Visit this gallery at 114 Virginia Street, Richmond VA 23219. Their hours are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays: 11am – 8 pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm. And Fridays from 5 – 8 pm you can shop with a glass of wine and live music. It doesn’t get much better than that!
