Trunk Show and Personal Appearance at Madison in Highland Park Village

Sisters Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford started their decorating firm in 1990, and then later opened the doors of Madison in Dallas in 2003. I am very excited to be doing a trunk show this Thursday and Friday, December 9th and 10th, from 10am to 6pm at Madison in Highland Park Village (near the Starbucks).
