Tour beautiful homes decorated for the holidays and finish your Christmas shopping all in one fantastic day.  It’s easy to do when you attend the Candlelight Tour of Homes and the Gift Market on Saturday, December 8.  The Tour of Homes is from 1 to 7 p.m., but you can get your shopping done early and late.  Gift Market hours are from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.  Tickets for the Tour of Homes can be purchased at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center on tour day.

The Market is held in conjunction with the annual Candlelight Tour of Homes which brings visitors from throughout the Metroplex to Weatherford.  Last year’s market hosted vendors selling luxury bath and body items; purses; jewelry; handmade pens and bottle stoppers; glass mosaics; embroidered items; notecards and photo prints; gourmet kitchen items; candles and scents for the home; home décor; clothing, accessories and shoes.

“The Gift Market was a great opportunity to shop locally and avoid the mall during the holiday season,” said Miranda Murphy, Events Coordinator at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center.  “We’ve got a wide variety of items, vendors and price points.  “I know one mother who brought her son to the Gift Market so he could purchase all of the presents for his family in one place.  It was a fun and low stress way to buy something for everyone on his list,” she continued.

A few booths are still available, so if you have a business or would like to have a booth during the Candlelight Market, sign up now by filling out an application and providing four photographs or flyers of your work and a $50 deposit.  There are two different booth sizes and the prices range from $140 for a 6’ x 6’ space up to $200 for an 8’ x 8’ premiere lobby booth space.  Electricity can be provided as well as table linens if needed.  Extra publicity is available on advertising materials for a small additional fee.
