WILLIAMSBURG—Tomorrow from 11am to 7pm, the ladies of Sodafine boutique and Self+Therapy spa are throwing a Secret Santa shopping event. They've invited locals designers and some out-of-staters to sell their wares at Secret Project Robot at 210 Kent Ave. If this sounds familiar, it's because the same market took place the last two years on Grand Street, where it was known as the Gift on Grand.

GOWANUS—Not enough holiday market action for you? Stop by the Bell House at 149 7th Street between 11am and 5pm on Saturday to shop even more wares from even more local designers like Lotta Jansdotter, Judy Ross Textiles, and Mast Brothers Chocolates. Because the Bell House is usually a place to listen to live music while drinking, the event will include live music and drinks. [The Bell House]
CHELSEA—Sunday at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street), Bust magazine throws open its stylists' closets. For $10, you get to enter the sale and pick out your favorite item, meaning you could walk away with 80%20 boots or a dress from Dear Creatures for the price of a slightly-expensive sandwich. The shopping begins at 2pm, but the event is part of the Bust Holiday Craftacular, which runs from 10am to 7:30pm. [Racked Inbox]
