Noel, Noel (and a Giveaway!)

Posted on Updated on

I’m not one to do my Christmas shopping ahead of time. Never have been. I’m usually scrambling the weekend before Christmas (sometimes even Christmas EVE!), trying to cram all of the shopping in at one time. It’s not exactly the best strategy. So,  maybe I should try a different strategy this year!
And the Junior League of Birmingham’s 25th Annual Market Noel may be enough incentive to break the old habits. I’ve partnered with them for this post.

Market Noel features more than 100 vendors from all across the country. That’s right–100 vendors in one place! You can find something for almost everyone on your Christmas list and have it all done before the Black Friday rush!

Here’s the general admission shopping schedule:

  • Thursday, November 19 – 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 20 – 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m
  • Saturday, November 21 – 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m.

Tickets are $12/day or $24/all days.

Or…you can go for FREE!

The Junior League of Birmingham is sharing two tickets to give to two readers! Just leave a comment below and let me know if you’re a Christmas shopping planner or procrastinator! I’ll pick a random winner at 7p.m. November 18.

There are also other fun events going on besides shopping. For more details on a Girls’ Night Out and Fashion Show, click here.

Market Noel will be held at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center in Birmingham. All proceeds will benefit the 34 community projects of the Junior League of Birmingham.

Good Luck with all of your holiday shopping!! And as always, thanks for reading!

    I don’t really plan but do buy when I see something good!

      Maybe your method would be a good compromise for me!

    I am a planner with Christmas shopping and everything else. I start my Christmas shopping the second week in November, but it is so hard not to shop for myself, too.

      I feel you! All the great deals! I get so weak and have to snag a few things for myself!

    No procrastination here. I’m just about done with gifting (for others – that is).

    I’m a planner, mostly. I tend to procrastinate about gift buying, though.
