The Nutcracker Market

Every year Houston has this little huge event at Reliant Park called The Nutcracker Market. 

Last year was my first year to go even though I've lived here for 6 years. I honestly thought it was a place they sold a bunch of Nutcrackers. I was wrong. 

This is like a Christmas lovers Heaven. No seriously, you walk in and

AHHHHHHHH!!

Surprisingly I didn't do near as much damage as I would have liked this year, but I still managed to come out with a few really neat things. 

You can see the major damage I did last year here

Anyway, this is what I picked up this year...

{new house shoes}

(a Tech garden flag for our yard}

{one of the only Christmas decorations I bought!}

{matching ornaments for the kitties}

{a luggage tag for John}

{Santa plate}

{my favorite purchase! I hope to make this a tradition every year!}

I picked up a few other things as gifts, but can't show them on le blog because the recipients are lurkers ;) 
(yes, that's you MOM!)



Do y'all have something like this in your city?

Cute slipers! I love Christmas craft stuff. Its a good thing we don't have something like that here because I wouldn't have any money left.

I wish I had the energy/strength to walk around the market! I have terrible back pain after an hour of walking around and I always have to sit. BAH. I have never been to the Nutcracker Market and I've grown up here!! SAD, right??? I absolutely love your purchases! The ornaments are just too adorable.

Hi! My name is Michelle and I am super jealous that you went to the Nutcracker Market.

I vow to make an appearance at next years. And I'm buying that whole place out.

Those house shoes are ah-mah-zing!

I loooove the Nutcracker Market! I go every year! Last year, my spending was out of control, so I tried to curb it this year. I only bought two scarves. It was SO hard though! I love your purchases!

Mommyblogger said...

I don't know of anything like that around here!! Shew, probably a good thing because my pocket book wouldn't appreciate it.

Love those slippers, adorable. Love the yearly ornament too. What a great tradition.

Amber said...

I love all the stuff you got, very cute! Especially those house shoes - I want some of my own! :)

Alex said...

Lindsay said...

I know it's been a year, and I'm so excited for the Nutcracker Market again this year! Do you remember who sold that last ornament you have? The personalized one? I see them every year but the line is so long -- I want to make sure that I start with them this year so there's time!! I just can't remember their booth name.
