It’s never too early to start shopping for holiday presents. Personally, I had my list taken care of by August.

OK, that’s a lie. So you might find me scrambling at the Holiday Market. Happening Nov. 19-21 at the Charleston Coliseum Convention Center, the annual event is in its 12th year locally. Hundreds of booths will fill the venue, and you can buy all sorts of stuff there: clothes, crafts, toys, gourmet food.

Plus Santa himself will be there. So on the off chance you can’t snag something, you can always put in a request with the big guy himself.
