Random shots.
1) and 2) You can always count on Michael's to be seasonal!




3) Bailey's at the mall always has nice mood-setting ornamentation every year.

4) and 5) More fodder for my decorated iron rail mania!
These were taken at a small strip mall not far away.




6) Giant wall wreath leaves no doubt as to the season it represents!

Logan Trading Post series. We always go there to eat at the Seaboard Cafe for lunch the first Saturday in December. It's also where we get our poinsettia each year. Used to get our tree there but the prices got too high so we go elsewhere for that.

1) Building exterior, always decorated for Christmas every year. This used to be a train station and the trains still pass behind it daily.


2) Santa stands guard over Logan's extensive poinsettia inventory!


3) Another shot. Logan must have close to a thousand poinsettias to choose from.

4) Elegantly decorated tree to display ornaments for sale.


5) Collection of artificial trees for sale. They have an extensive collection of natural ones outside. Hundreds of them. But the prices are too high. They have 8 footers for $70 each but we found some just as nice the same size for $35 elsewhere.

We return to the mall where it's Macy's vs Belks to see who can have the skimpiest decorations. The glory days of the past are over and in recent years I have had to search for signs of Christmas.
Nevertheless, there are some:

1) Macy's continues their "Believe" theme from last year.


2) Oh, look. More red balls and a few small trees have been spotted!


3) That's a little better. Now, I'm seeing a bit of Christmas spirit from the store who sponsors the Christmas Parade.


4) Kids can mail their Santa letters at this mailbox.

Have already posted a number of Belks photos but here are a couple more.

4) Silent and stoic mannequins stand guard around this narrow tree.


5) Overhead garland sets the mood for this food display.

Meanwhile, the mall itself continues to add more decor!

6) and 7)
My mania for railing decorations is on overload!
(This particular display is brand new this year!)




8) I always look forward to Brooks Brothers' classy window displays every year!
(Sorry about the reflections.)

Stepping away from the mall, this is the entrance to Lowe's Christmas section.
(Coming soon, North Hills!)
