Though the native Texan and native Australian who founded Southern Spears Surf grew up oceans apart, their love of surfing the very waters that once separated them now unites them. Both have traveled the world, from Costa Rica and Fiji to Indonesia, in pursuit of the perfect wave.

At Southern Spears Surf—“spear” is Australian slang for surfboard—they cater to fellow surfing devotees with a generous selection of short and long boards. To kit-out surfers, they sell surf-inspired clothing for guys and girls, as well as gear like wetsuits and wax to keep boards slip-free while eliminating the body hair that naturally grows from them.

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.
