Never before has it been so important to support local businesses. And what better way to do that than keeping your holiday purchases local?
If you want a one-stop local shopping experience, don’t miss Funky Finds this weekend, Nov. 21 and 22.
Variety of Vendors
This event features more than 150 local businesses, artists, and craftspeople. You’ll find prints by artist Elisa Baker, Grandma Lu’s baking and spice mixes, pots and knickknacks from Anna B’s Ceramics, canine fashion items from Barkin’ Paws Outfitters, reiki-infused natural perfumes by OA Botanicals, and shirts, tumblers, and decals from Stone Creek Boutique. To put it simply, you’ll be able to get a gift for every single person (and pet) on your holiday list here.
Raise Money for the Humane Society
Sadly, the Humane Society of North Texas will not be able to offer pet adoptions at the event this year, as they usually do, but you can still support them and their furry residents by purchasing a raffle ticket when you arrive. They are only $1 each, and the proceeds will benefit this deserving organization as well as the Dallas-Fort Worth Toys for Tots. You can also get a T-shirt in exchange for a $10 or more donation to the Humane Society.
Get Your Picture Taken with Santa
Just $5 will get you a picture next to this jolly figure – and more importantly, that money will also be donated to the Humane Society of North Texas and DFW Toys for Tots.
Make a Day of It
When you arrive, you’ll be given a Funky Finds booklet. This will outline information about the vendors and includes a map of the event – because yes, you will need a map. That’s how big this event is. It could easily take the better part of a day to get a look at all the offerings. So why not take your time and pick up some lunch from the food vendors while you’re there? And don’t forget, dogs on leashes are welcome, so you can bring your furry companion, too.
This event is free, so there’s no excuse to miss it. Grab your shopping list and go!
