You might think this is a slow time of year for us here in the shop. With the cold, windy, icy, snowy weather – we may see fewer of you come by here, but we have been plenty busy! Finishing up inventory this week, continuing to bring in new product we know you will love, deep cleaning the entire shop, trips to buying shows and lots more!

We thank you for your support especially this past year and over the last 14 years! We know you have many choices of where to shop and we are pleased to be on your list!

Check out a few of the goodies we have on sale now – soon to be packed away. And remember we will be closed on Mondays in January!

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)!
