This weekend I was introduced to a Kansas City tradition - Holiday Mart. I have my coworkers to thank for cluing me in to this shopping exhibition. It was just a short walk from home so I spent my day weaving in and out of endless booths. I didn't even mind the Christmas music. It inspired my purchases of a snuggly scarf, an assortment of handmade holiday candles, and a few ornaments (owls in Santa hats!).
Like one of those boring work conventions except with a bar and credit card machines ringing.
The only ornament with a name on it.
Goodbye Holiday Mart! Until next year...
