PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Some people left the Thanksgiving table early to get a jump on their holiday shopping at Christmas Village in Love Park.

From tree ornaments and decorations to handmade jewelry and crafts, there's something for everyone there. 

Rajneesh Kaur says her family traveled from New Brunswick, New Jersey for a post-thanksgiving adventure. 

"We always like to go and see what's new," she added. 

So what is new at Christmas Village this year? I'll let Emma Kelly tell you, 

"It's called Minnie and Moon, and it's named after my grandmothers, and I sell sustainably sourced home and garden products," explained vendor Emma Kelly. 

It's her first year as a vendor, so if you need any gift items, she wants you to know "My booth is well-heated if people like to come visit." 

The village is open through Christmas Eve.
