Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this mold November Thursday.

It’s probably too early to say we’re in the holiday shopping season — nevermind the Christmas displays that popped up in some stores before Halloween — it never hurts to keep an eye out for unique gifts. The Greater Lansing Potters Guild’s annual fall sale offers a wide variety of functional and decorative pottery. This year’s selection, made by 30 local ceramicists, includes dinnerware, mugs, casseroles and other dining items, as well as fine art vases, jewelry and garden decorations. 5:30-9 p.m. Thursday; 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. FREE. All Saints Episcopal Church, 800 Abbot Road, East Lansing. (517) 337-1222, glpg.org.
