Festivus is upon us

Who's not a fan of Seinfeld? What was once a hair-brained idea of George's father's is now a gathering of local business and community members in New Orleans each holiday season.

The annual, month-long Festivus Market starts this Saturday! Festivus provides a "human-scale alternative of the loneliness of on-line shopping or the hassle of big box holiday parking lots." Its a one stop shop for holiday gifts and merriment.

Shopping locally builds a strong community and keeps our money in New Orleans where it can rebuild the city. Shopping at local businesses means your goods are traveling a shorter distance by gas-guzzling semi trucks. It's an all-around better idea!

The market is at 700 Magazine St in the Warehouse District. Go and support the long list of local businesses at the market!
