If the thought of sipping cocktails and sampling sweets while shopping for holiday gifts suddenly brings visions of sugar-plums dancing in your head, then we have a holiday treat.
On December 2, CultureMap is gifting Dallas-Fort Worth with the ultimate holiday shopping experience. The CultureMap Holiday Pop-up Shop, sponsored by Verizon, is a holiday boutique showcasing 25 of our favorite, hand-picked local retailers for men, women, kids, pets, jewelry, gifts, home, and gourmet food and beverages.
But wait. It gets better. To get you in that shopping spirit, you can drink cocktails and nosh on festive food while you shop. Expect to be serenaded by carolers (no piped-in mall music here) and be sure to stop at the special crafting stations.
Think of this as your chance to actually relax and enjoy your holiday shopping, while supporting some great, independent DFW retailers. General admission tickets are only $10 in advance, plus, to make sure we send good tidings to all, the event benefits The Birthday Party Project.
