Celebrate Small Business Saturday by shopping for gifts at DC Brau's Holiday Market. Over 40 local artists and crafters will be displaying their work, along with at least five D.C. food trucks!

I started to look up some of the dozens of vendors who will be at the market, and let me tell you: they're fantastic. From sassy letterpress cards to handmade soy candles, you've got a bunch of vendors who make some wonderful stuff. For a full list of vendors, visit the event website.
