Santa Con has passed, the tree has been lit and there has even been some snow. Whether or not your Holiday shopping is complete or has even started is irrelevant at this point. The Season is here! As exciting as the energy is on our streets and subways, there is an element of stress involved this time of year. The family, the traveling and the shopping all produce an element of stress that is more or less nonexistent the rest of the year. We’re here to help you tackle at least one element of stress. At least for this week.

You procrastinated too long and the delivery dates online no longer work. That means you have to actually go to the stores!  Ahhhhh! Don’t fret yet! Yes, you will have to get off your couch or computer chair, but you don’t necessarily have to deal with that.  We have an option for you and all you have to do is get to the Upper West Side. For a Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar.  This weekly Upper West Side marketplace, one of New York City’s oldest, goes all out every holiday season. The marketplace is open through December 29th and runs every Sunday. Stop by any Sunday to shop photographs, jewelry, furniture, beauty products, antiques and tasty eats from more than 150 local merchants.  Just think as you give local gifts how you can always sell the story of local New York!

This is the Holiday Market to shop for the unique gifts that you can’t find elsewhere! Come shop from 150+ hand-picked independent local artisans and dealers. Find one-of-a-kind handmade holiday decoration and giftable items, candles, skincare, fashion, vintage accessories and collectibles, handmade jewelry and furniture, rare antique silver- and glassware, and of course delicious artisanal chocolates and foods.  Holiday shopping never felt so good as you’ll be supporting local artisans and independent dealers, and 100% of Grand Bazaar NYC’s profits are donated to four local public schools benefiting over 2,000 children.  Feel. Good.
