We all know somebody that shows the rest of us up during the holidays. They emerge from the kitchen with cookie creations that put our homely chocolate chip ones to shame. They bang out handmade cards and wrapping paper, and give gifts of their own amazing design. The rest of us are at the mercy of the local shops' selections. So thank goodness for the people who've organized the Second Storie Indie Market. On Saturday, November 29, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, November 30, 11 a.m.- 4 p.m., you can shop (or just admire) handicrafts from more than 20 vendors, and choose from items like original paintings and drawings, handmade journals, ceramics, soaps, lip balms, jewelry, and lots more. The event takes place at the Visual Studies Workshop, 31 Prince Street. Go to secondstorie.com for more info, and to preview the offerings.
