64th Christmas Gift & Hobby Show Nov. 6-10

INDIANAPOLIS — Central Indiana’s largest one-stop Christmas shop—the Christmas Gift & Hobby Show— is coming to town Nov. 6-10 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ West Pavilion, 1202 E. 38th St., in Indianapolis.

“Forget about the crazy mobs you’ll run into after Thanksgiving,” said Donell Heberer Walton, executive director of HSI Show Productions. “We take the hassle out of the holiday and instead, provide a fun, convenient and affordable experience.”

“We want you to start checking off your lists early, and maybe think about buying some, unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for a change,” Heberer Walton said. “You know, things you can’t find in a mall.”

An anticipated 65,000 showgoers will find over 350 local and out-of-state exhibitors relating to art, music, hand-painted and personalized items, holiday and home décor, sports and collegiate memorabilia, books, jewelry, toys, apparel, designer-inspired accessories, fragrances, nostalgia collectibles, specialty food sampling and even wine tasting with Hoosier-based wineries.

Dr. Lori from Discovery channel’s hit TV show “Auction Kings” will return offering free antique appraisals (one per person, per session) during her Antiques Appraisal Comedy Show at noon, 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 through Friday, Nov. 8. on the Theater Stage. Photos of items are also welcome for collectibles too delicate or large in size to transport.

New features to highlight:

Merry Merchant Markdowns. Prior to the show, shoppers can preview show-only discounts and bonus offers via www.ChristmasGiftandHobbyShow.com, and print coupons for use at the show. It all varies; some exhibitors may offer $5 off a purchase, while others provide a buy-one-get-one-free deal.

Santa’s “Give Back” Program. Donation days encourage guests to bring a new children’s toy, bag of new socks, canned goods, canned pet food or cleaning supply, and gently used clothes to benefit local nonprofits on given days. In return, guests receive $3 off general admission (with no other combined offer). Log on the show’s website for more details on collection days and beneficiaries.
