We’ll be serving treats and sips and holiday cheer.
Rumor has it a real live elf will show up at Gum Tree Kids, and there will be arts and crafts to keep the little one’s busy.
Gum Tree Cafe’s very own Lisa Ritchie, singer songwriter, will be playing in the shop at Gum Tree Manhattan Beach from 11-2. This girl has the voice of an angel, seriously talented.
