There's a certain kind of madness to the holidays —- a kind of sugar rush, glassy-eyed fervor that's somehow completely lovely and totally overwhelming. I think this is particularly true for the men and women out there who put a soul-crushing pressure on themselves to find the perfect gifts. You'll see them cruising through NorthPark Center this holiday season, rushing past the Di Suvero sculptures and Warhol prints. You certainly won't find them leisurely sipping a cup of coffee with a friend. Even with all the cheer, it can be difficult to love the holidays, which is why we're writing to tell you about a different sort of shopping event: a neighborly affair for which several local businesses are setting up tables of goodies at a chocolate shop in Oak Cliff.
From 12-4 p.m. Sunday, swing by Coco André Chocolatier's new location on 7th Street for a holiday mini market from some of your favorite local businesses, all of which happen to be owned by kickass ladies. The Kessler Pie Company will be dishing out pies, artist Iris Candelaria will have her colorful work for the snatching up, and Queen Oh Wafer, Lucid Dream Cream, Pins and Folds and more will be there as well. Seriously, sugar, spice and everything nice.
