We all know that one person whose year revolves around Christmas. They don’t just enjoy the holidays, they LIVE for them. Gift ideas are collected throughout the year and meticulously recorded on secret spreadsheets, and if your Christmas decorations aren’t displayed by the last week of November, something is seriously wrong.
These are the kinds of holiday-loving people at The Christmas Store at Potters Nurseries. Christmas for them doesn’t start in November or December, it starts all the way back in January when the buying team starts searching the world for items to fill the Christmas store. And the store covers over 28,000 square feet, so the worker elves have had their work cut out for them. We’re not talking a tree or two, it’s wall-to-wall Christmas ornaments, wreaths, lights, you name it! From traditional and tasteful to delightfully tacky and unusual, everyone is sure to find something that suits their decorating style.
An annual holiday shopping tradition for many, The Christmas Store at Potters is guaranteed to put you into a holiday frame of mind. Come and marvel at intricate displays, such as the Merry & Bright, Red & White front entrance display that greets visitors with thousands of glimmering red and white ornaments. Venture into the 3,000-square-foot Dark Room, illuminated by more than 75 different Christmas-themed canvas paintings and more than 60 different Christmas-themed water lanterns. This year, there are more than 30 themed trees throughout the store, including trees featuring gingerbread, candy and even gnomes. Get captivated by the elegant Paris Tree, all in black and white and adorned with sparkling Eiffel Tower ornaments. MouseTown, an automated village run by tiny mice, is back and even bigger! This year MouseTown is action-packed with ski lifts, cable cars and all sorts of moving components that kids of all ages are sure to love.
For the loved one who has it all, fear not!
