Another way to take a stand against corporate consumerism is to do your shopping at Cal State Long Beach’s 47th annual Holiday Art Sale. CSULB’s program is the largest publicly funded art school in the nation, and this event has been taking place for almost half a century. Pick up awesome handcrafted pottery and other art objects for everyone on your list, for less than you’d pay at a bougie gift shop. Plus, the money goes straight to the artists, so they can continue to pay off their MFA debt. Happy holidays for all.

Sun., Nov. 30, 4-7 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 7, 12-5 p.m.; Mon., Dec. 8, 12-5 p.m.; Tue., Dec. 9, 12-5 p.m.; Thu., Dec. 11, 12-5 p.m., 2014
