Yesterday was the first day of the Union Square Holiday Market, one of my favourite places to visit during the winter. It might be because I'm in love with everything handmade––and that might be related to my love for arts and crafts in general––but I can spend hours in this type of artisanal markets without even noticing how the time goes by.
So of course, I had to visit the Union Square market on its first day. And I loved it! I didn't really buy anything, but I came back home with lots of gift ideas––most of them for myself, shamelessly––that I will definitely go back to buy. Some of my favourite stands were Edie Art, Lola Bean, Dr. Sofskins... and of course all the food places––especially if they had waffles and hot chocolate!
The market will be open until December 24, so there's still a lot of time to visit (again) and support all the artisans that are participating in it.
