It wouldn’t be the holidays in the Circle City without a "little" local holiday shopping party known as Yelp's Totally Bazaar. Nearly 1,400 yelpers packed in to Indianapolis City Market for a one-night celebration of local Indy. Food, alcohol, entertainment and some of the best shops in the city set up stands for Hoosiers to get festive shopping done and explore this great city.
In the words of Stephanie D, "There was so much to do and see I didn't even know where to begin! The atmosphere was right with everyone trying to find that special gift for that special someone. The options of gifts were endless as were the food and beverage options which I took full advantage of!"
The Bazaar was booming with an amazing selection of 65+ vendors selling unique gifts like gourmet marshmallows from 240Sweets, ugly Christmas sweater tshirts by Vardagen, smoked holiday meats from The Smoking Goose, American Armadillo's bowties and Easley Winery's mulled wine by the bottle and cup. To ease the giftwrapping woes, a complimentary gift wrapping station wrapped up the goods found in shoppers stuffed Yelp bags. To catch a breath from all the shopping madness, yelpers could pay a visit to the west wing of the Market for Pattern's holiday fashion lounge complete with black and white Christmas films, a makeup and photo booth and several fashion vendors.
Heather H's take on the event: "WOW. I think everyone in town came to this event! What a great showing by Indy citizens for local vendors!"
Sarah C got her shop on: "SUCCESS! I loved the atmosphere. When were you ever at a holiday shopping event that wasn't bustling with people? The vendors were helpful and most importantly - patient. Though it took some squeezing and weaving to get through the masses of people, it was worth the effort to reach the local goods."
Wishing You And Yours A Very Merry Yelpmas!
