While you’re out there helping the economy and tracking down good deals, consider thinking about donating blood.
Hence, red Friday.
Maynards Market & Kitchen is putting a local spin on the traditional post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy by hosting a vendor fair and blood drive on November 27, from noon to 5 p.m. on the plaza at Maynards in the historic train depot.
To help encourage shoppers to always support local businesses, Maynards vendors will showcase their products and offer special pricing for the day. Presenting vendors include: Salsa Girl Salsa, Denize Designs Stained Glass Gifts, Made to Crave Granola, Adobe Rose Scone Mix, & RetroTrek Vintage Gifts, Tucson Tamale Company, and Painted Cave Cattle Company among others.
As part of the family friendly festivities, the Determined Luddites will provide live entertainment while children can enjoy games and a free craft booth provided by Local First Arizona and Mrs. Tiggy Winkles.
The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross will receive blood from eligible donors in the mobile blood bank, set up in the Maynards parking lot. All presenting blood donors will have access to the VIP room, located upstairs in the Drawing Room, for refreshments including homemade lemonade and fresh-baked goods.
