Shopping in Galveston

Select Local Merchants

Home For The Holidays Gift Market wrangles 200 unique vendors and artists selling handcrafted wares for a festive yuletide shopping experience. A rigorous selection process, involving juries and fortune-cookie readings, handpicks the lineup of vendors and crafts-persons. Shoppers can peruse two levels of goodies from cheer mongers such as Katelyn's Korner Candles, Custom Florals, and D&S Flatware to gussy up living quarters and empty gift boxes for the holiday season. VIP shoppers at Merrell Center can arrive at 4 p.m.—one hour before the doors open—to ready their shopping fingers and relax over a light buffet in the banquet room. Patrons check coats and bags, and can escape the fray by popping back in periodically to refuel with a beverage and unburden themselves of accrued merchandise or business cards from out-of-work elves.

Diners at Board Game Island don’t have to play with their food to enjoy their lunch. While filling their stomachs inside the cafe, they can pull out a game from the library of more than 500 board game titles to suit all ages and interests. Fantasy fans can pair their jerk chicken sandwich and potato chips with a round of A Game of Thrones, and youngsters plotting to capture the family pool for themselves can practice with classic Battleship, all the while snacking on a ham, bacon, and pineapple pizza. The shop also features an espresso bar and baked goods case with snacks and dessert to further fuel tabletop competitions.
