Here's one way to shop local for the holidays. Saturday November 29 is "Shop Local in Sanford" Day*. Bunch of stuff going on.
Sanford's Farmer's Market and the Arts & Crafts Market in Magnolia Square with (the big green clock) 9am-2pm.*This is not an official designation. I just made the name up cuz it's local and there seems to be a few events happening that day.
Fringe Vintage's 1-year anniversary "Green Friday," half-off sale includes live music, punch, grog & "Scoobie snacks." (4-7pm at 303 E. 1st Street, Sanford, FL 32771, More Info: 407-320-8016.)
