Get a jump on your gift shopping this Saturday at a Holiday Marketplace at the Anah Shrine building in Bangor.

I always enjoy going to the art and craft show at the Anah Shrine, hosted by the Sunshine Club for Children. They always have a huge variety, from Christmas decorations, to handmade items, to food. We always buy honey and anadama bread at the marketplace, along with anything else that strikes our fancy.

This year's show is being held Saturday, November 3rd, at the Anah Shrine building, 1404 Broadway in Bangor from 9 to 4. It's just $1 to get in, and that money helps send local children to Shrine Hospitals for medical appointments and treatment. Lunch will be available for purchase, as well.

Stop by Saturday for some great holiday decorating ideas, and plenty of unique, Maine-made gifts for the people on your list.
