Phoestivus Market 2012: Handmade Holidays Gifts For One and All

The annual Phoenix tradition of holiday shopping, airing of grievances, and festivities kicked off its two-day run on Wednesday night at the Phoenix Public Market. This year's Phoestivus features dozens of local vendors, plenty of munchies, and a beer garden.

From 4 to 8 p.m. the downtown community gathered to complain about the record winter heat and check a few more names off the Christmas shopping list. Didn't make it to the first installment of the Seinfeld-inspired event? Don't worry, we've got some highlights to help you get ready for next week.
