Honeygo Boulevard and White Marsh Blvd, White Marsh, MD
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
The trip will be postponed for early next year and will not continue for Saturday, December 8, 2012. The New York Metropolitan area is still in serious recovery and it is best to wait until the area is better restored. A new shopping trip to Manhattan will be rescheduled for early next year. Everyone will be notified of the new date of the trip.
We will end the year 2012 with our first shopping trip to New York City! As a suggestion from one of our members, we will go Christmas shopping in the popular SoHo community, which is well known for its unique stores and wonderful boutiques. Our destination also includes the Union Square Holiday Market, which features numerous Christmas gifts, items, and ideas sold by over 100 vendors.
The 18th Annual Union Square Holiday Market is a yearly holiday shopping event and outdoor market that features over 100 merchants. You will find a variety of gift ideas such as glass housewares, handmade jewelry, clothing, Tibetan crafts, and other goods for Christmas gifts. In addition, there are several retail stores in the Union Square area for additional shopping options.
