Our vendor gift market has gone virtual!

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases throughout the North Texas region, we will not be hosting a Kid’s Holiday Store this year, after all.  The situation is definitely one for Santa’s ‘naughty’ list, but we hope to resume this holiday tradition in 2021.  We wish you a safe, healthy and wonderful holiday season.  Thank you for understanding.
