Whether you’ve hit the snooze button on holiday shopping or have it all in the bag, Brickmas presents a festive opportunity to tie up the odds and ends of gifting season.

Organized by the witty, whimsical creators behind the hyper-local brands BarbacoApparel and VeryThat, the fourth annual affair promises “unique gifts from 70 vendors, a seasonal photo backdrop for family pictures and selfies, and all the puro holiday cheer you can stand.” Beyond distinctly San Anto, Tex-Mex-inspired tees, totes, tiles, stickers and jewelry from the Alamo City’s “officially unofficial T-shirt company” (BarbacoApparel) and like-minded “one-stop Chicana shop” (VeryThat), the free, kid-friendly event beckons with unique, handcrafted wares from the likes of Snake Hawk Press, Feliz Modern, Sweet Craft, Black Moon Print, In the Weeds Natural Skincare, Flower Girl Apothecarie, Bubble and Squeak Soapworks and Karma Candle Makers — not to mention hot cocoa, shakes from Honeysuckle Teatime and grub for purchase from Smackerel.

Free, 6-10pm Fri Dec. 21, 10am-6pm Sat Dec. 22, Brick at Blue Star, 108 Blue Star, (210) 262-8653,
