A Unique Shopping Experience

Like many Washingtonians, I avoid crowded malls during the holiday season and opt for quaint venues around town to do my Christmas shopping. That's why I thoroughly enjoyed the story published in The Washington Informer, "A Unique Experience for Holiday Shoppers" on Dec. 2.

The BZB Holiday Gift and Art Show at the Shiloh Baptist Church Family Life Center in Northwest definitely provides shoppers with a unique experience - there are no stampedes - no crazed bargain hunters prepared to run you over when the doors open. During BZB's bazaar, shoppers can browse and talk with artists and vendors at their leisure. Most importantly, there's a cornucopia of interesting and one-of-a-kind items to suit every member of the family - all housed under one roof and spread over two floors at the center.

I hope Britton continues to produce the gift and art show because it really gives me and I'm sure other shoppers in this region an event to look forward to each year.
