Another Birmingham tradition is almost here! The Junior League of Birmingham (JLB) is hosting their annual Market Noel event November 19-21. With over 100 vendors I am ready to get some Christmas shopping done for family and friends (and maybe a little bit for myself). I will be sure to post a recap of the goodies I purchase, but read below for more details about the event from JLB!
