Holiday Shopping

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)!

Mother’s Day 2016

Mother’s Day is coming quickly this year. Be ready for May 8th (the second Sunday in May) to celebrate the lovely women in your life!  We have new, fresh products coming in almost every day so you can find wonderful gifts starting at under $5.00 and up.  Check our loose teas and accessories, wooden signs, photo frames, florals, candle scents and warmers and so much more!

Here’s a peek at one of our displays-in-progress!

 And another new product!  A plug-in, flickering-flame candle, sensor nightlight! This would look great in a country/prim bath or powder room.  Mom would love one!

Shop Our Store

We’re getting ready for the holiday shopping season to begin — starting with Santa coming to the mall this Saturday – November 17 at 11:00.  He will be joined by Curious George!  While you are in the mall, stop by the store and check our Ganz and Nat & Jules plush animal sale!

We wanted to let you know that on Black Friday, we will be opening our store at 5:00 am.   So, if you are up and in the area, you can stop by  the mall to see us early (or later . . . we’ll be open till 10:00 pm).   There will be a gift with purchase on Friday and thru the weekend, as a thank you for your continued support as you shop our store.  You will also find some specials throughout the store during the weekend.

Saturday (Shop Small and Shop Local Saturday) hours are 8:00 am thru 10:00 pm and Sunday’s hours are extended to 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

All year long we proudly support local businesses  .  .  .  Handmade by Cheryl, AcornWoods Designs, Jills Jams Mixes & More, Stampin Up Cards by Pam and of course – Dottie’s Snowmen!  Our candles, potpourri,  wrought iron, framed art and many of our word boards are made in the USA.   Coffees and cocoas come from Door County Wisconsin, Country Home Creations mixes from Michigan and Pelican Bay mixes from Florida.  Beaumont and Sugar Loaf Pottery is made in Ohio, Off the Beaten Path Cookie Cutters in Missouri and Irvins Country Tinware is made right here in Pennsylvania!  SallyeAnder Soaps hail from New York and Sweet Grass Farm soaps and lotions from New Hampshire – and they can all be found right here! 

We may have left out some of our local and made in the USA suppliers — and apologize for that.

See you soon!

They’re back . . . and more!

Everyone is counting down the last shopping days till Christmas.  We are counting also — only 15 more days till we are back to regular store hours!

We have our $1.00 tree set up . . . buy an ornament and the $1.00 donation goes to Hanover Area’s Red Cross.  Last year you donated almost $250.00!  We matched that amount and donated a total of $500.00!  All from a few ornaments!! 

Before they disappear completely, come take a look at Dottie’s Snowmen, Handmade by Cheryl, wreaths and table decor from Acorn Woods Designs and many other local and made in the USA products we carry!

We mentioned in an earlier blog that we now have McCall’s Candles.  We have picked our favorites,  . . . many of you are already familiar with them, and are excited that we have them in stock.  Don’t see your favorite scent?  Let us know and we can add it to our next order!

Be on the lookout for our 12 Days of Christmas specials starting Monday December 12 and ending on Friday December 23.   A different product on sale each day – one day only – for twelve days.   Check this blog every morning to see that day’s special, or if you are in the mall, stop by to see the special for the day!

Let the Christmas countdown begin . . .
