Holiday shopping is upon us - beat the rush!

Even though it's still a week until Thanksgiving, it's not a bad idea to get started on your holiday shopping. After all, if you do it now, you can beat the rush of all of the other shoppers! It's 40 days till Christmas Day...

If you're in the Seattle area, there are plenty of opportunities for you to check out some EtsyRain sellers' wares in person over the weekend:

In Renton, it's the Hassle Free Holiday Bazaar, at the Renton Community Center, 1715 Maple Valley Highway, Renton, WA 98057. This Bazaar runs Friday, November 16th, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, November 17th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Over 100 vendors will be selling crafted items.

In Puyallup, it's the Zeiger Elementary's 5th Annual Holiday Craft Fair, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 17th. I don't have an address for this one, but I suspect people familiar with the area can find it.

In Magnolia, there's a craft show at Lawton Elementary, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 17th. Lawton Elementary is at 4000 27th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98199.

For the late night crowd, who thinks that 9 or 10 a.m. is too early to be at a craft fair, UNZiPPED & Buttoned-Up are having a fashion show featuring independent designers from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, November 17th. There is a need to purchase tickets for this one, but they are offering appetizers and there will be cocktails! Also, the sale portion of this event is on Sunday, November 18th, with a buyer preview from 10 a.m. to noon, and open to the public from noon to 6 p.m.

Finally, on Sunday, November 18th, there is a children's art sale at All For Kids Books, 2900 NE Blakely St., 1 block north of UVillage. This runs from noon to 5 p.m. I happen to know, from inside information, that the Grinch will be attending this event, to celebrate his 50th birthday. Sweet! :)

Totally adorable onesie in Christmas colors from Sycamore Baby's shop.

I'm hoping to make the one on Sunday near U-Village. I look forward to getting started on my "buy homemade" holiday shopping!
