We were looking for Halloween stuff. And at that place the ladies are so sweet and charming and so helpful. They have quite a lot of stuff from department 56 and many Halloween dolls and other things. Worth the ride to go there

Beautiful Christmas decorations throughout the store. Lots of families, couples enjoying “Christmas Feeling”, I can tell. Truly amazing. Everything is “Pricey!” If you have tons of money, you can purchase anything “Christmas” but folks like me, just browsing. Nice place to visit before Christmas.
