As Mother’s Day weekend kicks off, this year’s celebrations will look a bit different from years past. Some major online retailers have postponed or halted deliveries, but many local vendors are still working to provide meaningful gift options for mom.

The Market at Lexington’s Icehouse Amphitheater will reopen Saturday, featuring vendors selling honey, soap, woodworks and more.

Blush Boutique and Home in Lexington is assembling gift bundles and offering shopping hours from 11 am until 4 pm Saturday.

Additional vendors in the greater Columbia area can also be contacted via phone or email. Many are willing to offer private shopping hours for anyone interested in purchasing a product.
