- The Washington Times - Tuesday, December 19, 2006

As an alternative to the bleak prospects of trolling the malls (not to mention the parking battles and picked-over merchandise), last-minute shoppers in search of unique gifts may want to visit the Downtown Holiday Market, set up on the sidewalks of F Street between 7th and 8th streets Northwest through Friday. The daily fair teems with arts vendors peddling such exotic fare as Tibetan handcrafts and elegant hand-fused glass along with jewelry, books, linens, handmade soaps and ceramics. Food vendors and free entertainment heighten the experience. Today’s music lineup features Flo Anito’s bluesy pop from noon to 2 p.m., William Davis’ jazzy pop and traditional music from 4 to 5:30 p.m., and Chuck Durfor and Ed Kernan’s acoustic folk and jazz from 5:45 to 7 p.m. For more information, log onto www.downtowndc.org or call 202/638-3232.
