The British Emporium is celebrating its 30th Anniversary having opened in Grapevine, Texas in 1992. The store now has two locations and is now the most British spot in the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area. It is a typical British Corner Store where you can find the best teas, biscuits, chocolates, sweets, groceries, books, and gifts from the U.K.
The Jubilee Open House will occur on both 4 June and 5 June from 12 noon till 4 p.m. on both days. Guests can purchase a raffle ticket to win a Barbie Signature Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Doll and other great prizes. Two local authors, both of whom have written British and/or Royal Family-themed books will be on hand doing book signings, Nancy Churnin on Saturday and Hazel Spire on Sunday. Guests can discover a huge range of British groceries and gifts. A sampling of favourite British treats and sweeties will be available on both days. Plus it’s an opportunity to meet some local Brits, perhaps in their own British regalia, sharing their experiences and stories with Her Majesty.
