It’s officially Christmas-shopping season. If you’re one of those who already finished your shopping, I don’t want to know about you. But, if you’re one of us mortals, here’s an opportunity that beats Black Friday and Cyber Shop Week hands down. Beginning this Thursday, shop Santa’s Secret Shop at the home of Rhonda Clifford, who was an extremely good sport during the photo shoot for December’s cover story about neighborhood gift makers (she’s the one on the cover, belted-up in her own creations). At the 2-day show, you will find one-of-a-kind goodies that, in most cases, will not bust the budget. And you’ll be shopping among friends and neighbors, not frenzied mall crowds. Thursday, Dec. 3, 6-9 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 4, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., 9433 Faircrest.
