Last Saturday I had the chance to check out the Hands On Texarkana 'May Market' benefiting the Volunteer Center in Texarkana.

The 'May Market' was held at the Ben and Jane Collins Home on the corner of 19th and Olive Street in Texarkana. The market had great gift ideas for mom and some really unique stories to go along with the vendors and their products.  Everything from Mary Kay beauty products to Building supplies from the Home Depot were there for the shopper. You could find great purses, candles, jewelry, even food as well. Here are just a few of the great vendors that were at the 'May Market"
