That is what the news called it....all the major stores decorating for Christmas....giving Christmas sales! (dear me Christmas??) - UNBELIEVABLE!! Yes.....I am working on Christmas....as you can see by the candy canes I posted - BUT I will not be fooled into buying early - I know the season is going to be rough - and I am BANKING on all my loyal and wonderful, smart, savvy customers to know where to buy the best holiday merchandise! I am speaking for ALL the small businesses out there that depend solely on your purchases. Yes we have to sell some "Made in China" items cause there are not ENOUGH "Made in USA" items to pay our bills - but I can say THE CINNAMON STICK will provide you with the best handmade and unique items that we can find! I will not let the newscasters and gloom and doom reports take away my "CHRISTMAS SPIRIT" - I love every bit of Christmas....the birth of Jesus....and the gift giving of St. Nicolas....to our present day Santa Claus. A most wondrous celebration that brings joy to all who live the reason BUT enjoy the season too.
Gift giving doesn't have to be a chore or headache...nor expensive - we will have wonderful handmade items and antiques in everyone's price range. Handmade gifts are great too...come to one of our "classes" and learn to make some of your Christmas presents! Gifts from the heart are the most wonderful. We hope you can find lots of treasures at our store...the store with the "CHRISTMAS SPIRIT"....okay I am off my soapbox....just had to get that out of me this morning!!
****and I love getting "kissed" under the mistletoe too...!!!
