If there's one thing author Travis Smith and historian Marshall Shore have in common, it's a love for nostalgia -- especially of the holiday variety. 

The two will be at Phoenix Metro Retro next week for an open house and holiday party featuring history vignettes by Shore in his Retro Spectacular-style and a presentation by Smith, who will also be signing his book on all-things-retro-Christmas, "Kitschmasland!".

The event, on Thursday December 8, is from 6 to 9 p.m. and admission is free. Shore says Retro will also be host to several vendors with retro and modern holiday goods with some "killer" seasonal decorations on sale. 

Phoenix Metro Retro is at 708 W. Hazelwood St.. For more information, check out the Retro website

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
