Local vendors also will be at the open house. Augusta Frank will sell Christmas cards during the event and Unique Confections will hand out candy samples.
“We try to have as many local vendors as possible because we want to support local artists,” Smith said.
Gift raffle items include a $25 gift certificate from McNellies, a fine art print created and donated by Smith, a gift certificate from the Scissortail School of Art, and a basket filled with items from the museum’s gift shop. Also, small goody bags will be handed out to children with families the night of the open house.
“It’s a really wonderful event for families. Not only because its free and open to anyone that wants to come, but I’m personally pleased that the house is still being used. Because so many of these old homes have fallen into disrepair and they are not being used and they are losing that integrity. I’m just thankful that people can come here and appreciate a part of Norman that is being maintained,” Smith said. “I just hope people can have fun. People can come and enjoy local music and some of the local items that we will have for sale. I hope that people can maybe come and buy gifts. I’m just thankful that we are able to continue the tradition of having the open house.”
