Indie Craft Experience: Get your holiday shopping started with affordable indie crafts from the 2012 Indie Craft Experience Holiday Shopping Spectacular, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sat. and Sun. The first 250 attendees each day will receive a swag bag and there is a DIY gift wrap area to wrap up your finds. The event is $5 at the door. It takes place at Ambient Plus Studio, 585 Wells St. SW.
Starbucks: Don’t forget to take advantage of the Buy One, Share One Event at Starbucks this weekend. Buy one holiday drink and get one of equal or lesser value for free. This event runs through Sunday from 2 – 5 p.m. at participating metro area stores.
Sears: Sears “Shop your Way Rewards” club members will get first crack at select Black Friday doorbusters online at 6 p.m. local time on Sunday. Yup, five whole days before Black Friday arrives.
