Enjoyed viewing every room! This place was not only Christmas items but that is the majority of the items. Owners couldn't have been more accommodating, even offered a nice seasonal drink while shopping.

Thanks for stopping to shop. Yes, we love Christmas (as you could tell) but it's been fun dabbling into gourmet foods, ladies accessories, jewelry and other areas. We're glad you enjoyed your refreshment while shopping. They are delicious AND pretty:-)
