What's red and green and bedazzled all over? Mistletoe Market, that's what. (I'll be here all day with amazing jokes. You should hear the one about a grasshopper walking into a bar.) Mistletoe Market is the shopping event for the suburban set. It's not one that I ever buy much at, but I've gone nearly every year with a friend. Mostly for the people watching.
This year, The Junior League's annual market — which raised $160,000 for its community programs last time — is next Friday through Sunday. But, there's a new venue, the Cox Convention Center. Get all your Old World crosses and sparkly burnout tees from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 14-15, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 16.
And if you want to get the choice picks, the "Sip, Shop and Mingle" private preview party is held from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. The preview party is $40 in advance, or $50 at the door.
