We are SO excited for this week! It’s one of our very fav markets of the year! Great food, amazing shopping finds from over 90 vendors from all over the country and the nicest people around all make for one of Houston’s best holiday markets!
We’ll be in the same spot as always in Booth 111 in the Bagby Parish Hall (that’s along the farthest East wall in the main front room closest to Woodway) and we are bringing all of our new Fall collections before they’re available on our website. So come on by and get a preview and start your holiday shopping in style!
Here are the details on the hours of the market this week…
And if you’d like to know which vendors are coming this year, here’s a full list below. There are lots of fun new vendors coming that we can’t wait to shop. Our dear friends at Maison Pernoud are coming for the first time this year. You will LOVE the French antiques that Kate travels the world to bring home to you. They are gorgeous! The girls at A Little Eye Candy are always in the know about the latest fashion accessories and they are loads of fun! The Smocked Frock always has the cutest traditional children’s clothing – perfect for your Christmas card photos. We heart Marye-Kelley and her always-a-great-gift decoupaged items. Her picture frames, tissue covers and wastebaskets are our favs! Paris Texas Apparel Co will be back this year with their gorgeous ties, tees and more for the Texas-loving man in your life. (My man rocks these all the time!) Pomp and Circumstance is bringing some of the best finds from their popular Houston boutique – affordable and fashionable, who can resist that? And we love the goodies at Tres Chic. I just bought the cutest leather purse in their Houston store and can’t wait to see what all they’re bringing to the market. All in all, there is surely something for everyone, so come by and say hi.
When I was a young girl of just twelve years old, my father died from heart disease. The effects of this disease are far-reaching and have touched too many dear friends of mine, both young and old, to count. This is a cause that is very near to my heart and I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of helping to raise money for The American Heart Association in this event. Please join us in Houston for a fabulous night of cocktails, light bites and shopping with heart. . .
Where, oh where, did the first two months of this year go? Seriously. Someone needs to slow this spinning world down so that I can catch up! Sheesh. I was just sitting down to do some schedule planning with my precious assistant, Sara, when I realized that next week is (you might want to sit down for this one. . .) March. Yes, March. (I’ll pause a moment while you let that sink in.) I hardly know what to do with myself. And if next week is March, then next week is also Chapelwood’s Spring Thing Market. Man, this one really snuck up on me! Being that this is my tenth year selling at the market, I wanted to share my insider tips. . .
As one of the featured designers at the recent Culture Map Holiday Pop Up Shop on Sunday at Silver Street Studios, I was asked to do an Instagram Takeover of their account for a day. It was my first takeover and it was so much fun! In case you missed the posts, I wanted to share them here – with links to make it easier on you to find just what you’re looking for!
So. Much. Fun. As you know, we were invited to participate in Culture Map’s very first Holiday Pop-Up Shopping Event on December 7th. Culture Map is known for their flawless taste and elegant events and this one combined both. We were over the moon when they called us up and let us know that we had been hand-selected out of all of the Houston-area designers – what an honor! We worked hard to put together the best curated collection for your holiday shopping needs and we had so much fun meeting all of you who attended. It was an incredibly successful event and we are so grateful for the support of our loyal customers like you! We were too busy writing up tickets to take very many photos, but here are a few we did take. . .
We are SO excited to have been invited to be a featured designer at the first-ever Culture Map Holiday Pop Up Shop! Culture has included 25 invite-only designers to show their goodies at the event and help make your holiday shopping season effortless and fun. With music, festive food, cocktails, a man cave to entertain your guy while you shop, free gift wrap and tons of great vendors to shop, your gift-giving tasks just got WAY more fun! (I mean, who doesn’t like shopping with a free cocktail in hand – way more fun!)
Join us next week at one of our FAVORITE markets of the year – St. Martin’s Joy of Giving! The market starts with a preview party Tuesday, October 21st from 6 to 9pm. $15 tickets get you a first look at all of the goodies for sale and appetizers, making it the perfect girls’ night out with your friends! The fun continues with free admission shopping on Wednesday, October 22nd from 9am to 5pm and Thursday, October 23rd from 9am to 3pm.
