ENID, Okla. —
While their husbands were off hunting, sisters Annette Leckie and Lynette Williams were Christmas shopping Saturday.
The pair were at the Home for the Holidays Home and Garden Show. Leckie, who lives in Boston, comes to see her sister and her family every year, and the sisters go shopping while the men “go to deer camp.”
They were looking at scarves, wine, nut brittles, leggings, bracelets and assorted items that make Christmas go around. They also sampled wine to decide which bottles were best.
“We come every year and we get a lot of gifts,” Leckie said.
Waukomis resident Kristen Cue also makes the fall home show a tradition.
“We come every year,” Cue said. “It’s always a great crafts show with a great variety.”
Ashley Currier, Enid, said she likes to bring her sons, Caleb and Jake, to see Santa.
“That’s a big one for the kids,” Currier said.
Michele Hamblin, Enid, went to the Home Show along with Cue and Currier.
“They’re the daughters I never had,” Hamblin said as she bought pickles and salsa, and checked out the bags, purses and scarves. “We come to the spring and fall shows.”
They were only a small sampling of the people who went to th Chisholm Trail Expo Center Saturday. An unremitting line of people waiting to pay their admission stepped through the door, handed over their cash and picked up their exhibitor guides.
The Home for the Holidays Home and Garden Show and Craft and Gift Show will continue at 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center. Admission is $3 for 12 and over. Under 12, admission is free. The show is sponsored by Enid Home Builders Association.
