The Arkansas Arts Center Museum School Sale is one of my favorite places to do some early Christmas shopping. One small change from the past few years: This year the sale is located at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds. If you're a member of the Arts Center, remember that you can go Friday for a preview party. Saturday is open to the public.

November 21

Fans of the Jimmy Fallon spin-off Lip Sync Battle will probably be interested in this Little Rock Lip Sync Battle at Argenta Community Theater. Benefiting Relay for Life of Greater Little Rock, the fundraiser will feature tunes lip-synced by local media celebs. Tickets are $50.

The second annual Holiday Pop Up Shop, featuring gifts and goods from Arkansas crafters (including, again, me), opens in StudioMAIN on South Main Street in Little Rock.  The shop will be open every day of the week through December 6, and art demos and food tastings are part of the lineup. 

November 28

Moooore shopping events. There's a theme as we near Christmas, no? The Promenade at Chenal celebrates its eighth annual Celebration of the Lights, where there will be a chance for photos with Santa, music, face painting, the lighting of the Christmas tree, and of course, coupons for use in the shopping center. 


Events get sparse around Thanksgiving, but save the date for the opening of Disney's The Little Mermaid at The Rep on December 4 and Holiday Hang Out at White Water Tavern December 4-6! As for me, I'll be headed to Fayetteville December 5 for The Little Craft Show.
