Others may be marching you off to the mall on Friday (no kidding!) to start your holiday shopping, but why do that when you can go to Baltimore’s Station North and check out unique gifts made by local artists and crafters and hear crazy banjo music live, instead of soul-killing holiday Muzak?
The Station North Black Friday Art Market is what they’re calling this art and craft bazaar, one of the Station North “Final Fridays” events. It starts at 3 p.m., Nov. 25.
Held at the North Avenue Market, at 16 W. North Ave., the market promises prints, paintings, photographs, crafts, jewelry, books, and more from Station North artists, members of Charm City Craft Mafia and the Baltimore Etsy Street Team. Load of Fun, at 120 W. North Ave., will host its own art & craft market featuring the work of Load of Fun artists.
Local folk artists Her Fantastic Cats will serenade shoppers in the North Avenue Market, starting at 5 p.m.. Then at 8 p.m., you can clock out on the shopping and head over to the Windup Space as they host Femi the DriFish & the Out of Water eXperience, Wendel Patrick, and DJ Dubble 8.
(The first 150 people to arrive will receive a Sta-Note, worth $2 at any participating Station North business. You can find more details on StationNorth.org or RSVP to the event and invite your friends to join you on Facebook.)
