stocking Christmas Decorations~

I dont know about everyone else but where I live theres very few places that you can actually go to and get Christmas decor year round.
Well last week I went to The Flower Factory with my godmother it was only my 2nd time going there and oh my goodness I was over joyed they had tons and tons of Christmas items... I said something to my godmom about it and she said they have Christmas stuff out year round and add more when it gets closer to the season.

From there web page looks like they have a few locations here in Ohio and then one in IN and one in MI.

Just thought I would share for anyone who might be close to a location you should check it out.

There was a year round Christmas store in the Market area of Toronto back in the mid-80's, but it closed some years ago.

There's one in Ottawa, but I haven't managed to get there yet. Must make a plan in advance.

Starting one locally likely wouldn't yield enough revenue to make it worth anyone's while to open one, a larger city or a place on the outskirts of tourist city might make it.

There just has to be more Christmas lovers out there who enjoy shopping for Christmas items any day of the year.

Sounds like my kind of place to shop!! We don't have any shops locally that have Christmas stuff available year round but our town does do "Christmas in July" and all the local stores put out their left over Christmas merchandise for a huge sidewalk sale so that's always fun!

I've been to the one in Ottawa! There are also a couple in Quebec City and quite a large one in Niagra on the Lake.

Believe it or not, there are quite a few around me here in Scotland. It really seems to have taken off over the last couple of years. My favourite has to be, though, the local garden centre which starts getting ready for Christmas in October. Then, in late November, December they invite selected customers in one evening for mulled wine and Christmas cake etc. with a brass band and carollers. It's really lovely
