Christmas is just what, three days away, and I know some of you (even me) still have holes in our shopping lists. Damn you for having so many dear friends and relatives that you want to spoil with gifts.
As reported late last month, the one-day Lone Star Bazaar at Numbers is aiming to fix all this. The bazaar opens tomorrow morning at the Montrose dance club, with vendors indoors and outdoors.
Local musician Austin Smith will be playing inside the club, plus Banh Mieria and What's Up Cupcake will be posted up truckin' nearby as well. The event runs from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and admission is free.
The bazaar is a great way to snag last-minute gifts, and to keep it local, too, since the vendors are from Houston. Here's the vendor list:
Jermaine Rogers Justin Anville (live murals) Eyehate Eyesore The Pop Culture Company Lady Lazarus Jessica Grundy Yoko Vintage Urban Izzy Vida Antigua Tin Roof Soap Co. Manready Merchantile The Silver Acorn Hola Dear Deer Good Books in the Woods Orange is the Sun Lotti Santeria Abbie Drue Designs Tiny Deer Yamin & Sid Rebel Revenge of the World Nom Nom Friends
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
