The first ever 'Crown Christmas Market' at Crown Colony Country Club in Lufkin is taking place Saturday from 10 a.m until 6 p.m. 

Vendors from across the local area are displaying and selling hand sewn items, several types of wood workings, paintings, home decor, jewelry, pottery, and much more.

Santa will also be present and a professional photographer will be on hand with photo packages available.  This will be a great way to design your family Christmas card with plenty of time to spare, or just your kids into visit Santa to avoid the long lines that come with the last minute rush.

A donation from this event will go to the Museum of East Texas.
