The buzz is really growing about the first SLF/Arts at the Armory Local is for Lovers Holiday Market!

SLF has lined up small business expert Randy Parker to answer any of your mobile & web questions.

Randy will be providing clarity, advice, tips, and resources all day thanks to SLF’s partnership with PagePart, a local biz offering mobile & social web solutions.

SLF and Arts at the Armory teamed up this year to emphasize the importance of shifting your shopping to local vendors this holiday season. Keeping your holiday spending in the community has the potential to generate millions of dollars in revenue for the local economy. We are so pleased to have been joined by an AMAZING list of vendors (below), selling gifts sure to please even the hardest to impress on your list this year.

That said, this market is more than just a shopping experience! While we will be featuring local vendors and artisans we have activities for the whole family. Three local youth bands - Burning HoneyThe Soulful Souls, and Stainless -  will play throughout the day, and we will have not one but TWO sets from local childrens’ musician JEFF JAM!

Don’t have those holiday card snapshots done yet? Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered! We will have a winter-themed photo booth set up by photographer Jeremy Heflin and you can buy your prints on the spot!

We also have some areas just for the kids: Knucklebones will be on-site so your little ones can play, and Herbstalk will be hosting a craft area! (Ed note: I heard some paper dandelions will be made. Can’t wait!)
