The event will feature more than 20 local vendors selling everything from vintage clothes and handcrafted jewelry to home goods and crafts. Ceramicist Tom Budzak, featured in our December cover story “Where to Buy Local,” will be there selling his beautiful vases, bowls and other pieces. Bring a copy of our December issue and ask him to sign it!

Local musicians will be playing in Patriot Park, so you can shop, eat and drink coffee to an energetic soundtrack of music and the bustle of other shoppers. Thirsty for something a little more adult? A Mimosa Bar will be set up The Corner, pouring its titular tipple as well as Arizona craft beer and wine.

Bonus: The first 300 shoppers get an exclusive gift bag with local goodies, and shoppers can be the first to skate on the CitySkate ice rink from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. for $6, including skate rental. Shops in the area like Urban Outfitters, Charming Charlie and Jos A. Bank will be offering Black Friday deals, and shoppers can use the code “ABF” for discounts at The Corner, Pizza Studio, Yogurt Time and V's Barbershop.
