Christmas Magic 

We are thrilled to host Christmas Magic at the store again this year! We’ll miss having Christmas at the Mansion, but with supply chain issues and staffing shortages still impacting our business, this is the best way for us to bring you all the Christmas Magic and still be able to raise funds for the Heritage Society of Washington County. In addition to the mini seminars, door prizes and delicious hors d’oeuvres this year, we’re also planning to host a luncheon at the Giddings Stone Mansion and have some fabulous pop-up vendors. To view all updates and the finalized schedule go the Hermann Furniture website.
