It’s hard to believe that we are celebrating our first anniversary of life in Burton, Texas! Jeff and I moved into our Burton home a few days prior to Thanksgiving 2014. It has been a very full year of making memories, realizing our dreams and becoming apart of an amazing community.
Christmas At The Coop
December 6th 11am – 5pm
I have thoroughly enjoyed planning our very first gen.u.ine Christmas At The Coop! Here’s what you can expect on Dec 6th…
From the beginning, I envisioned featuring homestead goods at The Coop. It has been a joy procuring local products, such as honey and honey jams from Lazy Bee Honey and lavender from Lacey Farms. I am confident you will find unique gifts from our mixture of vintage and industrial home goods, along with our hand crafted items and fun tee designs.
I dream of filling The Coop with live music. It was a goose bump kind of moment when my friend Abbey Road helped me book T-Roy Miller for an acoustic jam from 11am – 2pm. Not sure how we got so lucky! T-Roy’s guitar picking is mesmerizing and will definitely put us in the holiday spirit! Check out his web site http://
Where the backroads end, Burton is a homestead for creative and talented people! I am thrilled to be hosting two very talented individuals whom I have had the privilege to become friends.
Pamela Fagan Hutchins, author and co-owner of Skipjack Publishingwill be joining us for a book signing. I recently completed her Kate Annalise trilogy and couldn’t put the books down. Her books will make great gifts, especially signed by the author!
Local artist, John Lowery has chosen The Coop to exclusively display his Engelbrecht Longhorn. The original painting is quite large at 50″x50″ and depicts a typical scene if you drive down Engelbrecht drive between 390 and Post Oak Road. You will be able to meet John and purchase one of his prints for the art lovers on your gift list.
Be sure to get there early!
11am – 1pm Boomtown Coffee, voted reader’s choice 3 years in a row, will be in the house! My son, Hayden Eckhardt will be using his mad barista skills to serve java and espresso drinks. Bags of freshly roasted coffee will be available to purchase as well. The perfect hostess gift for your upcoming gatherings.
Make it a day!
Burton’s Heritage Society has planned a Tannenbaum Tour and Christmas at the Depot. Tour our local businesses and vote for your favorite Christmas tree, have your photo taken with Santa and enjoy the holiday spirit in our magical little town!
Make it a tradition
December 4th – 6th small towns throughout the Roundtropolis area will be celebrating the holiday season. So, book a B&B and make a weekend of it! We hope that slowing down for a country Christmas will become your annual tradition.

Happy Holidays! ~ Tiffany
