Did someone say “Holiday Sale”?

 

While we have been teased with some snow dusting, we have not yet experienced a true Garrett County winter storm yet. We are being patient however, and still enjoy being outside in the warmer than normal temperatures.

Wisp-44

If you are in the area this weekend, we recommend that you head over to Bear Creek Traders Christmas Open House running from Thursday the 10th through Sunday the 13th daily. For these 4 days, they are offering everything in the store @ a 20% discount! What a great deal! Trust me, you will definitely find something for everyone on your list at Bear Creek! NFL goodies, Deep Creek apparel, home décor, kid’s gifts, pet items, the list is truly endless (including what appears like an old fashioned candy bin filled with lots of sweet tooth goodies!). They also have a wonderful supply of winter wear; hats and clothes for kids of all ages and even stylish scarves and coats for women! Jewelry! Did I mention that they have jewelry? Earrings, rings, necklaces, watches, so many pretty things. The first thing that will catch your eye though is the big Santa Claus statue that greets you walk in the door. He already posed and camera ready! For those friends of yours that love to add to their holiday décor, they offer a great selection of everything from snowmen figurines, candles, Christmas tree decorations and much more! They will also be running some of their special December bargains and giving out a complimentary gift with each purchase (Who doesn’t love free gifts?). Definitely worth stopping by!

Doing the Last Minute Scramble!

With Christmas only 3 days away, I imagine that there are many procrastinators out there scrambling around still trying to find the perfect last minute gift? I, unfortunately, speak from experience! My saving grace, however, is that I choose to shop local for the holidays so there is no need to try to rush to a mall for my last minute items. Luckily we have so many great little shops to choose from that my variety is plenty. One of my all-time favorite shops in our area is Schoolhouse Earth located just a few minutes from Deep Creek. With over 3 buildings full of items, there is definitely something for everyone in your group. They have a children’s section which consists of everything from toys to clothes to room décor. Another section of Deep Creek décor such as vintage maps, wall signs, and plaques. For those that have a “Foodie” or Wine lover to buy for, they have a wonderful variety to choose from whether you are looking for certain spices and dips or just a cute new wine glass or wine opener. Definitely worth the stop. The Christmas Chalet, located in the heart of the lake action, is the place to go if you are shopping for that person that just can’t get enough Christmas decorations or perhaps collects certain ornaments! They even have football themed trees (Are you a Ravens or a Steelers fan? They have both!) It’s definitely the store to go into if you haven’t yet found your Christmas spirit as it truly is a winter wonderland. Travel up to Oakland to the local Book Mark’et & Mezzanine. A new tradition could be buying your children your favorite childhood book for the holidays or pick up the latest novels for the bookworms that you know. They also have a wonderful collection on antiques and unique home décor. Your choices are endless.
 Back to the lake to shop at Bear Creek Traders who offer everything from cool cups and mugs to large pictures and displays. Completely stumped? Head to Trader’s Coffee House to get your java loving friends a new coffee mug complete with Trader’s gift coins! Every year I promise myself that I am not going to wait until the last minute to shop and yet, here I am. Very comforting to know that my choices of where to go are numerous! Support your local shops this holiday season and throughout the year!
