We found some lovely holiday decorations both indoor and outdoor and dinnerware all at very affordable pricing at the new store. Lot's of glittery accessories for the table. We loved the string of lighted silver bulbs that would work great over a mantle or over a doorway. This is one of those shops that's great to browse. Even when you've no intention in buying anythings, chances are you'll find something you can't do without.
Another of our favorite shops is at The Forum. This locally-owned shop always gears up for the holidays and this year is no exception. The store is packed with Christmas tree ornaments and hostess gifts to tree toppers.
And it's also got the very popular "Elf on the Shelf" book that has taken the area by storm. If you haven't heard about this delightful book that keeps children brimming with excitement on the days leading up to Christmas, then stop in and ask Kim Darden, the store's manager or one of her helpful assistants for more details. The store also offers free gift wrap for your holiday purchases.
