We're hosting another Artisan Holiday Market at the Cidery soon, so make sure you stop by! There's sure to be something for those tricky loved ones you haven't found a gift for. Like my Dad. I reckon he would love a pair of these kaleidoscope shades from Granny Glasses. He'd love even more that they were handmade with love by a local Austin artist. Assuming it's not boiling hot outside, we'll also have mulled cider (adult and kiddo versions) and other general holiday merrymaking!
