Living in Austin you get things that others just don't. For instance is it December and 67 degrees outside. We also have a wealth of talented artists that you can buy from out at two art shows that have become well love holiday traditions.
First up the new kid, which has been 10 years in the making The Blue Genie Art Bazaar.
The show runs from December 1st-24th Sunday - Thursday 10am-10pm, and Friday- Saturday 10am-midnight. It is indoors at the Marchesa 6406 N I H 35 # 3100Austin, TX 78752. There are over 130 artists featured, and I am proud of how many of those are Etsy Austin team members.
Then there is the granddaddy of them all The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar that is now 35 years old. The event takes place at the Palmer Events Center 900 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, Texas. I love that Austin has had a handmade tradition this long. The show runs December 15th-24th 11am-11 pm everyday. Check out the site for music, and ticket information. There is certainly something that you will knock your socks off here. Drop by and check out an institution. Shop local, buy handmade, and have a safe and happy holiday.
