You can get a good start on your holiday wish list while shopping with a purpose this weekend in the Des Moines metro.
The Junior League of Des Moines is hosting its 23rd Gift Mart.
You’ll find more than 60 boutique vendors inside the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center Friday and Saturday.
Items range from kids clothing — including handmade ties – to jewelry, holiday decorations and more.
Tickets are $7 at the door. This is the Junior League of Des Moines’ biggest fundraiser of the year.
“We promote volunteerism, we develop the potential of women. And, we also improve our community,” says Jean Hiller with the Junior League.
The gift mart runs Friday until 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
