Christmas Shopping

On Saturday while the guys were out in the woods hunting, I decided to go do a little Christmas shopping. I thought that maybe I could find some gifts or at least a few stocking stuffers. I went to a few local, family owned gift shops.

The first one I stopped at was The Viking Trader. It has been in business for over 30 years. They feature Scandinavian (especially Swedish) imports, and have 5 large rooms of other gifts, cards and clothes. They have gardening items, jewelry, mugs, wall hangings, frames, stoneware pottery, toys, plus a Christmas room and a card room.

This one is The Bemus Point Pottery Shop. They feature handcrafted pottery, and have classes available if you are interested.

Then I went to Petals & Twigs

My last stop was The White Picket Fence. They have a variety of gift items from home, kitchen and personal accessories to cards and party supplies, artwork, pottery, gardening gifts, jewelry, purses, baby gifts, books, and toys.

I bought a few things, but can't tell you about them since they are gifts.
