This coronavirus thing has made me have to think outside the box. The truth is that I really did not want to have to be closed for this or for this long. I like my routine, and our online store is not as established as I would like it to be.
We definitely want everyone to be safe. A vacation is lovely. However, we still want to spread joy, and our usual way of interacting with you is in person. So, things will be a bit different for the next couple weeks.
I have never liked receiving loads of emails or online ads, and I imagine you don’t either. On the one hand, I could just give everyone a vacation (including you) from the holidays. On the other hand, I could ramp up our online presence. I’m torn because I think we all could use a little more hope and holiday cheer right now, but everyone else is bombarding you with online sales pressure and my idea of a vacation includes less time spent on social media.
So, bear with me if you see more OR less of us than you would like. I may go live on Facebook. I may go on Instagram TV (or whatever it’s called). I may not. I think I WILL give you a coupon to shop our online store. It’s located below.

In the meantime, as the photo above states, I will be here at The Christmas Shoppe because we have some shipments scheduled to arrive, office work to take care of, bills to pay, orders to place, and some chores I have put off (defrosting the freezer, moving the sleigh, painting a wall, etc.). I will be here:
Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm
In the meantime, here’s what YOU can do to help our shop and all of Main Street:
