During the holidays, consumers are inundated with ads, deals and discounts from big box stores. As a small business owner myself, I know the profound impact shopping small can have on designers and artists (especially this year when so many small businesses are suffering). The Prery, located in the heart of Bucktown, is hosting a holiday market which includes an array of female-owned businesses, makers and designers. We’ve put together some of our favorite products below. The Prery Holiday Market is located at 1714 North Damen and is open Friday-Sunday 12p-5pm.
