Wondering what to do with this three-day weekend? Why not join me and about 300 artisans at the Northern Virginia Christmas Market? They'll offer a diverse selection of fine arts, pottery, jewelry, stained glass, wood, photography, fiber arts and Christmas collectibles. Plus, 20 food vendors will offer gift-packaged gourmet fare such as almond pound cakes, holiday cookies, spicy salsas, fudge-by-the-pound, fruit cakes, sparkling cider and homemade jams and jellies. These tasty homemade goodies are ideal for creating great gift baskets or loading up Santa’s stockings.
Of course, I'll be there too, signing my novels, which do make perfect Christmas gifts for anyone on your list who loves a good mystery or thriller. Come say hi at the Dulles Expo Center, in the South Hall, 4368 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, VA. I'll be looking for you Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday until 5pm. $8 gets you in for 2 days, and you can save a dollar if you bring a canned food donation for Virginia's food banks.
Veterans Day weekend will offer you a chance to get the jump on your holiday shopping, and why not start with a set of signed novels for your more literate friends? http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=268129456555941
