PLAINS TOWNSHIP — For those of us who didn’t feel like waiting for Jolly Old St. Nick to squeeze down the chimney, a shopping expo helped to kick off the holidays in one part of Luzerne County.

The Wilkes-Barre Area Career & Technical Center hosted dozens of vendors in Plains Township on Saturday.

Vendors had a little something for everyone’s holiday wish list.

The marketplace also featured basket raffles and door prizes and even some food in case shoppers got a little hungry.
