Gem

I try to go every year for orniments, I'm never disappointed. You always run into a familiar face, and if you are from out of town like myself, you feel local and welcome.

Thanks for writing and calling us a "gem". We LOVE IT! LOL We also carry a lot of non-Christmas items these days so make sure you check out our gourmet foods, kitchen gadgets, and ladies accessories and jewelry when you're next in. We just closed for the season but put us on your calendar to visit July 1 or later... More

We really surprised and then we love this place. We bought some some collectibles and great things for gifts. Their stuff just perfect, just like the one in Germany.

Thanks for your note. I'm sorry to say that I've never been to the Christmas markets in Germany but I sure would like to go some day! I hear such wonderful things (plus so many Christmas traditions are routed in Germany). Thanks for writing and for the lovely review. Elf Julie More

I had seen advertisements for The Christmas House before when we had been to the Seneca Lake wineries, but had never stopped. This trip provided the perfect opportunity to check it out. When we pulled up, my friend and I were awestruck at the beauty of the house. She is a big fan of Victorian architecture and was delighted to... More

Many brochures from the Finger Lakes featured The Christmas House so I was excited to travel off our route to visit. While they had an abundance of ornaments and miniatures, that's about where it ended. I expected a larger space with much more unique items and gifts. Although it is worth stopping in, I would do so if it's on... More

I am in love with the Christmas House. I find so many gifts, gadgets and decorations. It is one of very few specialty shops in the area and always a must see if you are in Elmira for any length of stay. You won't be disappointed. My family and I have purchased jewelry, scarves, ornaments, cooking utensils, dips and sauces,... More
