December Trekkie
Holiday Shopping!

Mark your calendars for Thursday December 8, when we go on our traditional holiday trekkie to the Tianyi Accessories Market.

It’s a great place to stock up on little things for the holiday season, such as Christmas decorations, winter hats and gloves, belts, hair accessories, scarves, slippers, socks and a whole lot more. This is a crazy wholesale market (one of the few left in the city) so be prepared for a frenzied but fun time shopping.

Spaces are limited, so sign up early!

Costs are only the shared transportation cost, approx. 50-75 rmb.

Early departure is planned (8:15)

INN Holiday Bazaar
November 28th

A special message from Juli Bradley:
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful and since we've no place to go -

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!  

Okay, so the weather isn’t actually frightful, and the snow was earlier this week… but it is cold out, so why not come join INN for their Holiday Bazaar, grab some coffee or hot tea to warm back up and visit with our vendors.

This is INN’s last official General Gathering for 2016 and instead of having our usual guest speakers this month we decided to make it even more fun by allowing all of you a chance to shop for holiday gifts, trinkets, and so much more. We have on board 25+ select holiday vendors with a little something for everyone concerned… even for your little fur babies!  EVERYONE is invited no matter what nationality, so bring your family, friends, neighbors and anyone else you think would enjoy a day of holiday shopping!


ADMISSION IS FREE FOR ATTENDEES.  The bazaar doors open at 10am and we will be going strong until 3pm.   




Can’t wait to see you on Monday and don’t forget to stop by the INN table and say HI!
