Our Christmas Open House is the last event of the year and for us is really the most special. We love all our events, but after all, it's Christmas! I love, love, love our old stone house and love to decorate it for the holidays. I feel like the stone house is another "character" in my business. I sometimes think of having a larger shop but then remind myself that the quaintness of having it in the back of the stone house and it's character is what makes it unique to us. So with that, we "deck the halls" and fill the shop with goodies for our customers. I love to see the anticipation on their faces, when they are waiting to come in and see what goodies I've chosen for them this year. The ladies started lining up around 9:40....
We were joined by my Sister, Lisa Evans and her whimsical Santas and beautiful Antique Boards, Denise Smith with her pretty silver jewelry, Robin Paddock with her primitive Santas and ornaments and Venditti Winery for tasting. We had dipping oils and veggie dip tasting and offered refreshments such as chocolate chip and cranberry cookies, Ginger snaps (Christmas in a cookie), lemon poppy seed cake, chocolate orange cake, spanokapita, truffles, caramels and more. It was a great day! I could go on and on about what fun we have but I'll just show the pictures.....

So, as you can see, a good time was had at the 4th annual Christmas Open House at The Old Tattered Flag. We hope you can join us next year!
Until next time....
