Go for a stroll, come home with art

Not only will there be arts and crafts to buy but Slideways will be there and you can give the gift of little burgers and fries to your belly.

There are lots of ways to take care of holiday shopping. Nobody wants to brave the malls and it’s only going to get worse. Sure Amazon is convenient but buying local is always better. Making your gifts never turns out as planned or looking like the picture, thanks a bunch Pintrest.

What if I told you could go for a nice little walk on the Northside and come home with everything taken care of? You’d buy me a gift right? Well here are the details on a nice way to spend your Saturday.

From Facebook:

A proud Northside tradition for 26 years, the Northside Artists’ Holiday Artwalk features over 40 local Richmond artists and artisans. From locally made soaps and lotions, sweets and treats, and beautiful handmade jewelry to locally turned woodwork, hand-thrown pottery, artful etchings, photography, and much, much more, there is something for everyone on your holiday shopping list! Shop local, support RVA art, and think outside the standard gift-giving box. Margie’s Custom Comforts Bakery and Slideways Mobile Bistro will be on hand providing both breakfast and lunch options to sustain you through your shopping spree. Admission is FREE!

This event is held as an Open House format in 5 historic Ginter Park, Laburnum Park, and Sherwood Park homes, all within a two block walk through the crisp fall air!

The following homes will be open for this year’s event:

  • 3319 Gloucester Road
  • 3323 Gloucester Road
  • 1400 Palmyra Avenue
  • 1515 Westwood Avenue
  • 1518 Westwood Avenue

The event runs from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, November 21st.
