Continuing.


Penney's was a disappointment.
Saw no Christmas section at all.

However, there were 2 isolated trees along the wall nicely decorated and worth a pix:


4)



5)



6) Returning to Belks.
Nice, lush wreath adorns a wall.

OK!
Crabtree Valley Mall, fully decorated in all its splendor!



1) Shot down the upper level of the main mall decorations.
(They must agree with me that it's a great display because it hasn't changed in 10 years now!)




2) Each kiosk gets its own little tree.




3) Close-up of a decorated bracket.

Continuing at Crabtree.


4) Shot of a lofty display looking up from the lower level.





5) Ceiling greenery in the food court area.

More.


7) Twin trees flank the opening of an outdoor section of the mall.




8) Long-time readers of this thread know of my penchant (dare I say mania?) for decorated streetlights and iron railings.
Here is a nice example of the former.

Crabtree looks great again, Crown! It's always a true pleasure to witness your fabulous mall each and every Blossoms thread! Is there anything new? It looks quite similar. As always, wreaths on lampposts are beautiful.
