Stress-Free Holiday Shopping: Alternative to Black Friday & Mall Stores for Unique Gifts

It can be fun to shop in the wee hours of the morning on Black Friday. However, the thought of battling the crowds at malls during the holidays doesn’t appeal to many people. In addition, it can be hard to find unique gifts at the mall or chain stores.

Here are two great alternatives to crazy holiday shopping: local craft shows and small businesses online.

Not only can you save your sanity, you can also pick up unique gifts for loved ones that they can treasure forever.

It just so happens that Forever Fusions fits both of those options. Virginia jewelry artist Chrisell Vasiliou started her home-based jewelry business to share her art talents with others. You can often find Forever Fusions at craft shows in the Virginia area and she also offers a way to browse some of her pieces and order your own custom-made creation online.

Forever Fusions will be at these two upcoming holiday shows:

November 3, 2018

Clover Hill Craft Fair

Clover Hill High School

13301 Kelly Green Lane

Midlothian, VA

9am – 3pm


December 1-2, 2018

41st Annual Hope Christmas Craft Market

407 Hope-Great Meadows Rd.

Hope, NJ

10am – Close


At the shows, you can see first-hand (and even purchase) her one-of-a-kind jewelry made of dichroic glass and metals including:

  • Funky Fusions color-shifting pendants, bracelets and earrings
  • Memorial pendants lovingly and respectfully infused with cremated remains of loved ones or pets
  • Mother’s pendants featuring silhouettes of mother and child
  • Metal cuff jewelry made of brass, pewter and .999 fine silver plating elements with fused glass cabochon

The pieces on display often spark an idea for a custom-made piece. Those pieces can be ordered during the show.
