Glass blowing at Vetro
This was a bucket list experience for me! You get to be hands on and help with blowing a glass ornament. So much fun!
Shopping on Main St.
I may have done a bit of shopping on Main St.! WOW! There is a little bit of everything and almost anything available on Main St. Grapevine. I found the most amazing jewelry and can’t wait to go back and buy more. You can also find souvenirs, interesting Texas gifts and so much more! Give yourself time to wander the street and see what each of the stores has to offer!
Don’t miss Crowned By Grace boutique! I found so many things in this boutique! I could have filled a suitcase with all of the stuff I wanted to bring home. Also Hole in the Wall which is right next to Dr Sue’s chocolate. I may or may not have gone into Hole in the Wall twice during my last visit stocking up on things I just had to have!
Market on Main is another favorite. I hate to say it but during my last visit the cashier was not super friendly but thankfully the selection of amazing jewelry and gifts made up for the grumpiness! This is a must visit for gifts, jewelry or really anything you can imagine and a lot of things you didn’t know were available.
