ROANOKE,Va. -

There are Christmas gifts and ideas for everyone at the annual Junior League of Roanoke Valley Stocked Market.

On Friday morning, a line formed outside of the Roanoke Civic Center of those waiting to get inside. Proceeds help the league's partnership with community organizations.

Shoppers of all walks of life, including the ones in the strollers are feeling the holiday spirit.

“Not only do you get to do some shopping, all the money goes back into the community. It's a really good reason to come out and spend a little bit of money to get a jump start on your holiday shopping event,” said Stocked Market Committee Co-Chair Ashley Feuerstein.

Santa Clause is making a special appearance at the civic center.
He's arriving Saturday morning by helicopter at 10.
