‘Christmas Made In The South’ is back

Due to the unforeseen COVID- 19 pandemic, Christmas Made In the South was cancelled in 2020; well, the city's favorite Small Business shopping experience will be back this weekend at the Prime Osborn Center, for your shopping enjoyment & convenience.

To answer your question,Christmas Made in the South” is a show presented by Carolina Shows that featured ‘hand-crafted items. The 2010 Jacksonville, Florida event featured over 232 Local (and out-of-town) artists and vendors selling one-of-a kind merchandise.

There was an abundance of food, pillows, hair bows, wrought iron sculptures, calligraphy, doll clothes, dog wear, rubber stamps, hammocks, puzzles, gadgets, books, boomerangs, birdhouses, stuffed animals, candles, artwork, sweaters, scarves & other clothing, pictures, paintings, calendars, pottery, grills, shoes, toys, educational components, plaques, jewelry, garden decor, glass art, lamps, baby items, coasters, things for the hunter and many, many, many, beautiful Christmas decorations.

After walking the outskirts of the booths and then zigzagging up and down the aisles, this writer covered the entire show in about three exciting hours. There was so much to see and people were more than ready to explain how they made their wares.

Customers weren’t just looking; they were walking out with bag and bags of goodies to give and keep for themselves. So, call a friend and let a neighbor know that you can’t keep a good show down. See you there!!!

Regarding COVID-19, Carolina Shows will be following all state and local mandates in your area. They recommend vaccinations and masks if you are unvaccinated. Their staff will follow all standard COVID-19 protocols. For anyone concerned about the crowds, they suggest that they come later in the afternoon - much slower traffic.
