You can't really expect them to have everything but for a town the size of Elmira they have an outstanding selection. If you can't find something Christmas related here that you just have to have then you must be related to Scrooge. Stop in and give them a look, you just might find something that you just can't live without.... More

This is a beautiful Christmas store that has a huge selection of Christmas decorations and ornaments to chose from. The staff are very friendly. You pretty guaranteed to find whatever Christmas decorations you are looking for here. I loved walking around it and looking at the different items they have.

My husband and I stopped on the way home from a visit to the Finger Lakes and found Elf Julie, as the owner likes to call herself, just getting ready for the 2014 season. She let us browse the many rooms in this lovely Victorian mansion (featured in the book America's Painted Ladies). we got a bit of a history... More

I love Christmas so I was excited there was a store near me dedicated to it. I liked that the house was a real house and each room brought a different feel. Great if you need ornaments or if you collect Christmas villages. I bought several things and the staff members were very helpful. Willing to order items if I... More

So, how many ornaments do you really need? If you need ones that are for special occasions then this is the place to find them, otherwise it's not worth the time or expense. The place is very crowded and it is hard to navigate the different rooms. The Staff is very friendly but I would not go out of my... More

Dear Brooke, We were disappointed that you didn't have a better experience with us but glad that you think we're the place to go for ornaments! As you can imagine, we listen to what our customers ask for and search far and wide for those "unusual" ornaments! Yes, we sure can get crowded (especially in November and December...and especially on... More

So many fun and interesting things to see and buy at The Christmas House! They have a huge selection of Christmas ornaments, Department 54, crèches, etc. But they also carry decorations for other holidays, plus jewelry, scarves, gourmet food, toys, teddy bears, etc. etc.. A very fun place to shop!!

Dear Betsy, thanks for the lovely review. We sure do appreciate it! We often hear the comment about how much there is to see! Some customers think we're running around behind them putting out new treasures when they discover something they didn't see the first pass through....and that's not far from the truth! LOL We always look forward to our... More

Lots of holiday items, but many are a bit overpriced. So hard to walk around inside because of a lack of space.
