If you haven't already checked out our gift guide for suggestions on what to be buying your friends and loved ones for the holidays (though there are some pretty damn fine ideas in there for local goodies, great books and wonderful music), fear not: we'll be supplying you with ideas for great local gifting throughout the holiday shopping season.
First up: The Philabaum Glass Gallery and Studio is running special prices on their work on November 23 and 24—Black Friday and its lesser-known cousin Shopping-Related-Injury-Recovery Saturday.
You'll be able to pick up such spectacular glassware as ornaments, dishes, vases, perfume bottles, goblets, jewelry, glass cherries and many assorted glass gifts. Remember, hand-made craftsmanship always beats digging through department stores for whatever overpriced lighted bauble they'll be trying to sling at you.
Philabaum, located at 711 S. Sixth Ave., will be selling at special prices on Nov. 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
