Kick start your holiday shopping (with great deals!) at the Certified Local Fall Festival

While many may think that Black Friday signals the beginning of holiday shopping, we Local First folks beg to differ. We believe that holiday shopping starts at our Certified Local Fall Festival which is right around the corner! The Festival, which will be Saturday, November 10th, gives you the opportunity to buy gifts from many of our fine members who are participating in the event including Kidstop Toys, Pink House Boutique, Practical Art, Eco Bay Home, Zia Records, Noble Beast, Frances, Smeeks, Strawberry Hedgehog, Bunky Boutique and many more! In addition, deal hunters will love our selection at this year’s silent auction. There is literally something for everyone so we thought we’d show off our list of auction items. The rules for the silent auction are simple – we start at 10 a.m. & end at 3:30 p.m. Items have a set starting bid as well as a “Buy It Now” price so if you absolutely must have something, you don’t have to wait until the end of the auction to purchase it. This is a great opportunity for you to support Local First Arizona and get some amazing items!
