{‘Neath the Wreath} Our Favorite Holiday Gift Market is BACK IN PERSON!

This post has been sponsored by the Junior League of Collin County to bring you details on their upcoming ‘Neath the Wreath Holiday Market.

After a virtual interlude in 2020, JLCC’s ‘Neath the Wreath Holiday Gift Market is back in person at a NEW venue for 2021. We’re excited to tell you about the 25th anniversary of this amazing fundraiser!

NOVEMBER 11-14, 2021
Marriott Dallas Allen Hotel & Convention Center at Watters Creek in Allen

One of our very favorite ways to usher in the holidays is ‘Neath the Wreath, the largest annual fundraiser for the Junior League of Collin County. All the proceeds go back into the community, funding projects that directly benefit Collin County families (something increasingly pressing after these past couple of years).

The Junior League of Collin County is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.


It’s a fabulous 4-day holiday gift market with over 130 merchants from Texas and beyond. You’ll find the best unique holiday and home décor, ladies’ clothing, accessories, gifts, jewelry, children’s items, gourmet food, and MORE. They strive to have something for everyone on your list— teachers, babysitters, mom, grandma, kids…gifts for all ages! It’s a really fun way to give back to our community.


The ultra-popular Ladies Night Out preview party will be on Wednesday, November 10. Tickets are limited for this relaxed, VIP shopping atmosphere. See more special details at the link. It always sells out, so don’t delay!

Katie grew up in Dallas and then spent 10 post-college years in Austin, where she and her husband Mick welcomed a daughter and son (in 2011 and 2013). They've since moved to Fort Worth and find it to be quite fun and a great place for kids. Katie is horrible at social media but secretly likes Twitter best. Favorite uses for her phone: reading library books and listening to comedy podcasts. Least favorite uses: making and receiving calls. If you've seen Death Becomes Her or Big Business more than once, you'll be best friends.
