At Event 360 we work hard and play hard. We travel the country going from one event to the next, and in the process we tumble upon some really great places in the cities we work. Be it a restaurant, music venue or book store (to name a few), we have found some must-see attractions and we want to share them with you.
Today, Gayla Cruikshank, Komen 3-Day Field Marketing Coordinator, tells where to find the perfect gift in Carrollton, TX!
Name: The Vintage House
Full address: 1101 Beltline Road, Carrollton, TX 75006
What makes this place worth stopping in? It’s an adorable historic landmark in Downtown Carrollton, Texas. Owner Nan Walvoord will greet you when you arrive with her sweet southern “hi there!” as she welcomes you to the store and offers you a cold drink. You can find the perfect gift in this packed playhouse, whether it’s jewelry, handbags, candles, or a last minute gift for a party. This unique store was chosen as one of the three national winners in the “A Visit from Tracy” contest. Nationally recognized designer, Tracy Porter, and her design team chose The Vintage House on the basis of product selection, display creativity, and event concept.
Must see/do/eat/can’t miss? There’s always a new selection of the latest and most popular jewelry. Stop in during one of their special occasions and you might meet the Vera Bradley family and get a piece of delicious cake made especially for the event. Across the street you’ll find some more quaint stores to shop, owned by friends of Nan.
Anything else? Nan is a breast cancer survivor and the cute, pink house has been a cheering station for the Susan G. Komen Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day when it passed by her location.
