Please bring a White Elephant gift to exchange.

What is a White Elephant gift? A possession that is useless or troublesome, especially one that is expensive to maintain or difficult to dispose of. It can be weird, funny, useful or a combination of all three.

Your white elephant gift can be outdoor-related, holiday-related, or not. Above all, you should not spend more than $5 on it, or better yet, pick it from the depths of the attic, basement or garage.

Wrap it up all sweet and nice, sugar and spice, in holiday merriment paper. Make it irresistible for the next owner. And we shall have some fun!


1 p.m. reservation at Sassafras
