We have a packed calendar of amazing events lined up for you this holiday season, starting this week! All events are held at Fringe, unless otherwise noted. We will be serving drinks and tasty treats at each event because we have to fuel that holiday shopping somehow! Come to one, come to all, and get your Merry Shop on at Fringe.
Bellingham Black Market Boutique Trunk Show
Thursday, November 10th, 3-7pm at Fringe
A curated collection of vintage and modern jewelry from the Black Market Boutique we all miss! After closing due to flood in 2014, Black Market is making a come back! We will host a trunk show of jewelry and vintage oddities, and probably a few surprises! This is a very special event for us, as Fringe owner Rhiannon was Black Market owner Colleen's first employee back in 2007! When the vintage shop closed, Fringe adopted many of its original fixtures. Come and get your vintage fix with us!
Black Friday & Shop Small Saturday
Friday & Saturday, November 25th & 26th
Let the holiday shopping begin!! We have yet to decide what kind of deals to offer this weekend, but we will be sure to keep you updated, and we promise they will be good! I personally challenge you to do 90% of your holiday shopping with local businesses, holiday markets, artists, and makers! When you spend your money locally, you are directly supporting your friends and neighbors, and this vibrant community in which we all live and love. Sustainable Connections is hosting their annual Buy Local passport event, which you can read more about here.
Art Walk with Erica Kutz of Mountainmind
Friday, December 2nd, 6-10pm
WWU graphic design grad Erica Kutz will be showing recent pieces from her design identity Mountainmind. Her art will be displayed the month of December at Fringe, but be sure to stop by during the Downtown Art Walk to meet the artist, learn about the passion and inspiration behind her work, and have a glass of wine!
Spa Day with BEING
Saturday, December 3rd, 12-5pm
Local maker of natural, organic, and vegan skincare line BEING will be at Fringe for a holiday pop-up and spa day! Stop by and warm your winter soul with foot soaks, face mask demos, and hot holiday drinks. Shop the BEING spa line for the perfect gifts for that someone who you know needs a little TLC and pampering. And don't forget to treat yourself, too! Those new bath salts will be essential to getting you through this holiday season.

Fringe is usually open until 7pm, but for two days this week, we will be open late along with many other downtown businesses to make sure you can conveniently get all that holiday shopping done on time!

Sassy Babes Boutique Pop-Up
Friday, December 16th, 5-9pm
Our favorite mobile boutique, Sassy Babes, will be bringing it inside to Fringe for a pop-up market during our extended holiday hours! Shop hand-draw, PNW-inspired, locally printed apparel for women, men, babies, and kids. Sassy Babes has some super fun and fresh designs this season that you won't want to miss, not to mention they make great gifts for those NW lovers in your life.
Pozie by Natalie Pop-Up
Friday, December 23rd, 3-7pm
Voted Bellingham's Best Florist, Pozie by Natalie will be setting up shop at Fringe for an afternoon, just in time for Christmas! Natalie's incredible live air plant and succulent jewelry and terrariums might be the most unique gifts you can give this holiday! We've planned this event just before Christmas so your gifts will stay fresh. Live plant jewelry can be worn for several weeks with proper care, and can then be planted for a second life. It's like giving two gifts in one!
Join us for any and all holiday events that suit your fancy, or give us a visit any day in between! We are getting fully stocked on all of our best gift merchandise, including many locally made pieces. We happily provide cute gift wrap on any purchase for an additional $1, and for that hard-to-buy-for girl, we have gift certificates!
