Allison Koch says Saturday's holiday benefit gift show has two major things going for it.

"It will be like visiting seven or eight different stores and you don't have to go out in the cold to do it," she said.

The gift show is scheduled 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rock Church, 306 N. 36th. Vendors are donating 10 percent of their proceeds to assist the church's annual holiday gift drive for families in need.

"There will be a diverse mix of vendors on hand," Koch said. "It will be one-stop shopping, a little bit of everything."

Already signed up are Silpada, Thirty-One, The Organic Orchid, Tastefully Simple, It Worls, ADOORable Wreaths and a Rock Church cookie decorating booth for children.

"The cookie-decorating booth is designed to give kids something to do while their moms shop," Koch said.

Koch said vendors are still welcome and will be accepted through Friday.
