"Saks Fifth Avenue's home department is rich with handcrafted products perfect for holiday decorating and gift-giving," said Eric Jennings, vice president and fashion director, men's and home. "We're thrilled to provide customers with the opportunity to enjoy the breadth of Saks' artisanal assortment firsthand."
