Christmas is happening this weekend!

We are all so excited about this coming weekend at The Market Place mall.  If you’ve been to our mini-mall before you know that every unique little store is owned by a small business entrepreneur. Some opened just a year or two ago; some over 30 years ago. From antiques to eclectic art and decor, we each love what we sell, and love what we do.  Please come and visit our wonderful world this coming weekend.

Annual Christmas Extravaganza!

December 19 and 20, 2015, Saturday & Sunday

10 am to 5 pm

at The Market Place

10910 Katy Freeway, Houston, TX 77043

Free Food and Drink!
Don will be demonstrating how he makes Lampwork Beads.
Ann will show you how she creates Clay Flowers.
Gigi and other artists will be demonstrating their art too.
And Sales!    And Sales!    And Sales!   And Sales!

Each store owner has a sale going!  At Glass Art and Beads we represent over 15 artists so there are a wide array of original gifts.  Along with original art, we offer really awesome resale items.  I love display and decor pieces from around the world. At Glass Art and Beads we’ve created inviting niches all around our store to show off our resale. Yes, it’s that great! So, on Saturday and Sunday we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate towards any resale treasure for every $100.00 you spend in our store.  Ann, The Clay Flower Lady store just two doors away from us, is making the same offer.

It’s a Staghorn Christmas in Houston

Don and I put up our “Christmas Tree” this week. Every year we choose one of the Staghorn Ferns we grow in our backyard, and mount it above our fireplace mantle. A little twinkle light here, a pretty bulb there, and voila! The second picture was taken by mistake. The flash was off and we happened to have the TV on The Universe series. Same picture, different take. Yes, our TV is in front of the fireplace. Who needs a fireplace in Houston?
