It's time to start buying friends/relatives holiday presents. Even more importantly, it's time to start shopping before all the retail madness unravels. At the Southern Christmas Show - which kicks off today - folks can find a variety of goods (arts and crafts, jewelry, toys, clothing, food and more) for sale by a plentiful array of vendors. Decorative trees, mantles and doors, as well as the holiday themed Christmas Village are also on display to get you in the spirit. For more information, visit www. southernshows.com/scs/.
