This year was my favorite Wade Franklin open house in the five years I’ve been going with my mother-in-law, especially since since last year I wasn’t able to attend and felt so disappointed I had to break the tradition. We get coffee and make the hour drive to Midville, Georgia, chatting along the way. It’s such a fun time. I love the community we build and support by shopping small throughout the year and especially the Christmas season. It’s particularly meaningful to me as a business owner, and I feel an immense joy sharing in the thoughtful commitment that others have made to us.
