If you’re not all set for Christmas, there’s still one more Saturday to shop local at the Flower Avenue Holiday Market on Dec. 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Yet more new vendors will be there, too!

Located at 8809 Flower Avenue on the parking lot at the corner of Flower Avenue and Arliss Street (near Piney Branch Road), the last day of the holiday market features some of our most popular vendors selling hand-made clothing, jewelry, men’s cufflinks, antiques, vintage toys, hand-carved animals from Africa, hand-painted Christmas villages, candles, cosmetics and more. The Long Branch Women’s Sewing Circle also returns, selling shopping bags and taking orders for more. New this week are vendors offering hand-made bookmarks, leather belts and bracelets, and phone accessories.

The dollars you spend support local entrepreneurs and re-circulate money in the Long Branch/Silver Spring/Takoma Park communities. Your shopping also helps raise funds for IMPACT Silver Spring, a nonprofit dedicated to community building and economic empowerment in our neighborhoods.
