Thanks for mentioning our "Great Friendly Staff". As you could tell, we all get along well and I think shoppers love an atmosphere where folks are truly smiling "happy smiles". Again, thanks for your nice review and we hope you stop again some time! Elf Julie

From the Victorian porches to the little niches filled with treats and treasures, Elf Julie and her special minions make every moment feel like you just opened another special package on Christmas morning. What a wonderful place to spend an hour -- or a day -- or a week!

What a fun review D! If folks DO come and stay for an hour....a day....a week...we'll probably mistake them as elves and put them to work dusting! LOL Thanks for your comments! Elf Julie

Great place to shop for unique ornaments and decorations. Great place to bring out of town guests. They have hard to find Christmas ornaments. Staff is friendly and helpful! Beautiful house and shopping venue! Special nights and fund raising opportunities.

Thanks Johna58 for your nice review of your stop at The Christmas House. You certainly have captured the essence of so much that we do here...and I will admit that I was surprised to read you know about our fundraising opportunities for charity group as well as for individuals. We truly believe in giving back to the community in which we all live, work and play. Shopping locally and shopping "small" allows us to do that. THANKS for being part of our mission!

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well at this business. "Elf Julie" and her staff make this one of my favorite places to shop. Large selection of charming and unique gifts, friendly and helpful staff. As Julie says, "It not just for Christmas anymore!"

Thanks for the great review LIndaL...we appreciate it! So glad you found our "Spirit of Christmas" alive and well while you shopped. It sure has been fun expanding our product lines to include a continually increasing amount of non-holiday goods! Thanks for coming to visit us during the early summer months! Elf Julie

Thanks for writing that "The Christmas House brings back the magic of Christmas." We should make you are marketing director as we all just loved that sentence (our long time slogan is "Feel the Magic" so it fits right in!) We are all so busy nowadays that it is nice to have time to take a deep breath and to remember to ENJOY the shopping experience! Thanks for sharing! Elf Julie
