They always have neat little things and some bigger items. Lots of stocking stuffers and xmas ornaments. It just goes on and on. Even had a separate room this year for just jewelry. Western items, things made with horse shoes, old barn wood and barbed wire, lots of bird houses. stuffed animals. This year there were things from Peru made of alpaca, it was so soft. Couple years ago they had Fair Market Trade items/baskets from Guatemala. Got two of those. Lots of snowmen, angels, handmade dolls, plaques, pictures (painted and photos) Then they have the mixes for dips and different roasted nuts, jellies and jams, soaps and bath salts. Smells like Christmas. Christmas music is playing. It is the 1st time for all of these wonderful, homey things. People are cheerful, even while standing in line to pay for half an hour.
It was a great time, wandered about for 2 hours!!! Just thinking and dreaming and listening to the music, people and smelling the smell of Christmas.
It is very cold here, but clear skies, the promised snow did not materialize as it so often does not East of the Cascades.
Take Care All and have a Happy Holiday Season with all the things that make u happy!
