Here’s a novel idea: Get your holiday shopping done early this year to avoid stress, long lines and rushed wrapping.

One opportunity to do just that is the Jewish Community Center’s fourth annual Snowflake Shoppe, which brings together more than 75 local vendors under one roof on Sunday, Nov. 18.

The free event will feature an eclectic mix of items like leather goods, candles, customized wreaths, monogrammed gifts, hand-painted glassware, wine accessories, local handmade jewelry, toys, books and much more. Vendors include Kentucky Proud, Bourbon By Design, Fleur De Lis Bubbles & Bath, Calli Jordan Designs and Southern Grit, among others.

“Our goal is to make shopping local and easy for everyone by bringing local vendors together under one roof,” said co-chair Nikki Grizzle in a news release. “The event keeps getting better each year.”

The Snowflake Shoppe runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. There also will be a Saturday night preview party that is free to attend from 6 to 9 p.m., and VIP tickets, which get you in early with various swag and drink options, range from $20-$50.

The Jewish Community Center is located at 3600 Dutchmans Lane.
