Holiday Shopping Guide

With the Holiday season right upon us, are you left wondering where to get started or how to finish off that list? I have few suggestions to get you ready to shop again!

The Annual Handmade Holiday Market  at The Artisan Center on Friday, November 22nd and Saturday, November 23rd. Shop for all the treasures that you can expect to find on any given day, plus enjoy shopping a vendor showcase in a separate room. Best of all; everything is handmade and you can even enjoy speaking with the artisans that have created the masterpieces. Items will include pottery, woodturnings, jewelry, stained glass, hand-knitted scarves, gloves, sweaters and more. Don't miss out on the opportunity to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list and maybe a little something for yourself.

Artisan Center- Christmas 

Saturday, November 23rd is also the Uptown Martinsville Holiday Open House where lots of shops will be open extended hours for the day and offering refreshments to their customers. This event coincides with the annual Christmas Parade and some Uptown businesses will remain open during the parade to accommodate you. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to visit Uptown and check out what all the buzz is about. Stroll down Church and Main Streets and shop at boutiques, art galleries, jewelry stores, furniture stores, antique and consignment shops, and more! If you get hungry during your adventures, you can fill up at Tasty Creme, Hugo's, Uptown Sweets, Mtn' Jax, The Henry Restaurant or Rania's.

Martinsville-Henry County is also home to many gift and specialty shops including Janice Cain Stationery & Gifts, Binding Time Cafe (books), Teddy Mountain, The Sewing Studio and Woodall's Music & Sound. See our Shopping page for a full list.
