Holiday shopping has definitely begun! Right now, we are in the middle of York County’s Best Kept Secrets Holiday Highlights Tour — featuring 17 shops — 17 gems that are scattered throughout the county. Let us know if you are interested, we still have tickets!
Many folks are stopping in for the first time since we moved over a year ago. Our new location is great and some who just happen to be in the area are checking us out and liking what they see. Our local, faithful customers are also out shopping early for the best selections. We appreciate everyone who comes in to shop ~~ for the first time and our 13 year supporters.
We are known for our home decor – curtains, braided rugs, framed prints, candles (both real and battery operated) and more. But we also have a great selection of gifts starting at under $5.00. And, right now we have lots of holiday goodies filling our shelves (and trees)!

In just a bit over two weeks autumn will officially be here! Does anyone else wonder what happened to summer – those long hazy days of summers of our youth? I’m realizing that I mention how fast time is going by an awfully lot the last couple years. My body is slowing down so I don’t understand why the days are doing just the opposite!
Anyway, fall is on the way and we wanted to show you some bits of what we’ve been busy with in the store. It’s almost unanimous that fall is our favorite time to decorate – not necessarily with ghosts, witches, bats and the things of Halloween. But with the colors, pumpkins, florals, scarecrows, cooler weather and fallish scents of harvest. When you stop by here, these are some of this things you can expect to see:
If you noticed the 2014 calendars in the photos, it’s just a reminder that we do have a really good selection of calendars from Lang, Legacy and Crossroads.
Only a couple days late with this New Year’s wish!
Many folks may think that January brings alot of downtime when you have a small retail store. Let me tell you that this is not so! We might take a couple days after Christmas to recover from all the hustle and bustle of the previous weeks, and this year we had to take time to recover from whatever illness everyone seemed to be passing around. But, the after-Christmas clearance time brings a different kind of busyness to our store.
Besides helping customers, we also use this time to reorganize and thoroughly clean everything front to back and top to bottom. And, of course – there’s the inevitable inventory – probably our least favorite activity of the year . . . but it has to be done. This really is the best time of the year to count product — because much of it has left the store! Looking around at remaining inventory shows many empty spots . . . framed prints (many gone) . . . lighted stretched canvas prints (a couple left) . . . Lang, Legacy and Crossroads wall calendars (at last look – 3 left if you still need one) . . . boxed Legacy Christmas cards (very few boxes left – still on sale) . . . Willow Tree, Blossom Bucket, curtains and rugs (gone, gone, gone).
This year, besides doing all the above (and more), we’ve decided to move complete areas around – the first we’ve done this in several years. What were we thinking? We all know that you can’t move just one thing – even at home – you decide to move the TV and the recliner has to move, too. The floor lamp has to go next to the couch which no longer can stay along that wall . . . you know the routine. Next thing – you’re buying new curtains to go with the new rug to go with the new coffee table! It just never ends!
For those of you familiar with our store, you will immediately see what we have done – Boyds Bears have temporarily moved out so we could move our curtains and textiles to the front of the store. Cards and other paper product have moved slightly to the back to give them their own not-so-crowded space. And, in that same area, we have more room to show off the magnetic Embellish Your Story by Roeda collection that we have.
Maybe some photos will help
It’s definitely a work-in-progress. Those empty spots? We’ll get them filled in just as soon as we can! You’ll have to stop by and see what a difference it makes!

Even as we are finishing counting inventory, packing away some Christmas product, and ordering in new product for this spring . . . we are getting ready to participate in the mall’s sidewalk sales this weekend 13th-16th! Just like a yard sale, this gives us a chance to clear away some things on our shelves to make room for totally new product. Nothing wrong with the things we will have on our sale tables — might be a discontinued item, the last of a group of items, or some over-stock items. Stop by and check out the goodies we will have out.
In the meantime . . . we’ve just gotten in an order of glittered prints! If you saw them before Christmas, you probably fell in love with the glittered look of the winter-time prints! This order will most likely be the last of the season because in another 4 – 5 weeks, we will be putting out spring merchandise.
Timer tealight candles are on their way along with lanterns and other items from Hearthside Collection. Check back here to see other new items coming in!
