Holiday shopping and events at the Market

The holiday spirit is in full swing at the Lansing City Market! Each merchant is celebrating the season in their own individual way:

LS Jewelry Designs and Florals

New bracelet holiday sets, designed in-house by Joyce and Christina, are only $10 and up. They would be great to add some holiday flair to an existing outfit so you don’t have to go out and buy a new one for all of those holiday parties!

Stay stylish and warm in a ladies’ large brim felt hat in red, tan, or black for only $20.

A wide selection of gifts are 10% off, including jewelry, ties, watches, and select hats!

LS Jewelry Designs and Florals will soon be having an end of the year sale after Christmas so be sure to come back and check out our specials page!
