It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Petal Pusher's Christmas Store is opening this week!  If you have never visited the Christmas Store, I would highly recommend a visit this year.  Shay and Henry Harris are good friends of ours and have been working hard to get the store prepared for your shopping pleasure (and mine). The store is open from late September through January each year and is full of any Christmas item you can imagine, from novelty items to ornaments to fully decorated trees.

One of the highlights of our family's Christmas each year is going to the store and letting each child pick his or her own ornament to put on our tree.  Shay and Henry have the widest assortment of ornaments I have seen, including gorgeous Christopher Radko ornaments.  We have also gotten some of our most unique Christmas items from the store -- in fact when our children were younger, Henry made it a point give them something from the store that made noise (you know, the kind of gifts that keep on giving...).  We have a Christmas Horse that plays the Lone Ranger theme, a very cute train set with a very loud whistle, and a bear that sings "Feliz Navidad".  As you can see, you can find almost anything you need for Christmas by giving them a visit. 

Mike stopped by the Christmas Store earlier this week and took a few pictures of Shay putting the finishing touches on things.  The Christmas Store is located on the square and has been called "the best Christmas store east of Atlanta" for a very good reason. 


  1. Shay and Henry are good friends of mine too. In fact Henry and I grew up together in Washington. Each year, I don't know how they do it, is more fabulous than the prior. They put their heart and soul into the Christmas Shop as well as a lot of long hours of hard work. Truly a must see when you visit Washington. You probably will not leave without something from the shop you cannot live without. Love you guys, Jann

  2. Jann, I totally agree. They start working on it months before they actually open. I have also heard that they are planning really unique displays this year. I can't wait to get back in there and get more pictures (and shop!).
