“My great grandmother gifted this Santa to my mom as a baby and I’ve loved it since it was handed to me as a child. (Hurricane) Harvey took it and I became beyond hysterical! It’s those things we lose that can break us. My daughter and several of our friends behind my back did everything they could to save & repair Santa, but even the best in the nation of crafters couldn’t. But after deep research, my daughter found one in New York and to my surprise--THIS was the most treasured gift I received Christmas Day 2017. LOVE IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!” -- Cindy Holbrook
