One of our favorite Christmas shopping events in Richmond is the "Northside Artists' Open Studio." This year, the event occurs this weekend, Saturday, November 17 from noon to 4 and on Sunday, November 18 from noon to 4. Homes and studios of some of favorite artists are open with their art and creative wares for sale and available for early Christmas shopping. Stroll through Richmond's charming Sherwood Park and Ginter Park neighborhoods along Westwood Avenue, Gloucester Road, and Suffolk Road. The 1500 block of Westwood Avenue is the central location, and all of the venues are within walking distance of each other. Pottery, photography, fiber arts, jewelry, chocolates, stained glass, paintings, prints, handbags, and more will be available. Don't miss it!
