River City MRKT Holiday

I headed over to River City MRKT‘s holiday market last Friday to check out the local/Michigan-made products and ooh and ahh over the cozy space they thoughtfully laid out filled with ceramics, jewelry, photography prints and stationary. And so much more. When I walked in I was greeted with the smell of treats and greenery and enjoyed a cup of peppermint tea while I perused the goods. How delightful.
I picked up a couple illustrated prints to hang in my living room and plan on making return visits, especially with my co-workers. I’ve got my eye on the wooden poster rails and leather strap and one of Debbie Carlos’ prints. I love her photography, so check her out online or at the pop up. River City MRKT holiday market is open now through Dec. 20, 12-7 p.m. every day. More photos on their Insta and Facebook!
Visit River City MRKT now through Dec. 20!

Shopping for friends can be a stressful bitch of a time, but I’ve come up with a shopping strategy.

What ideas do you have for holiday gift giving with your friends?
