Here's a brief description of the two-day event, according to

"The Indie Garage Sale is known for bringing local artists and crafters together to showcase their handmade goods in one amazing event. The Holiday Shoppes 2013 will be unlike any other Indie Garage Sale we've held in the past. We are essentially creating a "Handmade Shopping Mall" in a brand new environment. The vendors we select for this exciting opportunity will help transform MVCC's new athletic center into a beautiful holiday atmosphere.
