My artist "light at the of the tunnel" is the exciting news that DC has approved the Downtown Holiday Market to operate, with many precautions to ensure safety. We'll have to work that patience muscle, though, because it doesn't start until November 20th. Joy of Glass will be there from November 20th through December 6th (the show runs through Christmas Eve).
In the meantime, shopping is always open at the Joy of Glass website! In addition, you can shop in person at Taylor's Collective in charming downtown Ellicott City MD. The are open every day except Monday -- check their website for hours.
