Can we take a minute here and press pause? Please? We have been catapulted into the beginning of the holiday season and things are getting crazy, quickly. We had our first holiday market last night with the delightful curators of Delish General Store, London Fields Shoppe (aka Got Craft?) and Refresh Market.

Delish General Store – began as an extension of Delish Magazine (www.delishmag.com), a free e-mag that ran for seven glorious issues. The publication and later the shop came about as an extension of what its creators believe in, traditional values in a modern mindset.
