Last minute gift shopping at Masonic Center

By  | 

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Dozens of vendors came out Saturday to the Masonic Center to celebrate the last Saturday before Christmas.

Business owners promoted their products to the public, while shoppers grabbed last minute gifts.

People choose from a range of gift options, such as crafting items and artwork.

There even was an opportunity for children to meet Santa Claus.

"For one, it keeps everything in the community. You're supporting a small business,” explained Shannon Carter, the event organizer. “We're all small business owners, and you get to go out and see everybody one last time before the holidays and get the last minute gifts if you've been procrastinating, but you will find things here that are extremely unique that you will not find anywhere else."

Carter thanks the community for coming out to support, and hopes people found the right gift to give this holiday season.
