Santa Express is a special holiday store where children between the ages of 4-12 can purchase holiday gifts for friends and family. All gifts in the store are under $8. Children shop with the help of volunteer elves, while their parents can either wait or shop in the front of the store at the Vanessa's Village Store. The kids wrap and take their gifts, which they give to family and friends during the holiday season. Santa Express is a wonderful holiday tradition, and offers an opportunity to, not only support the Nursery, but to teach children the lesson of giving to those in need.
