We Are Busy! Decorating, Skating, Small Business Saturday, Oh my!

There are so many events happening here in our historical downtown. Here are some of the highlights.

There is A Christmas Tree going up on Tuesday, November 19th in the Square. For those folks who have been able to visit us, you may have noticed the beautiful park right across the street from us. Every holiday, a large tree is brought in and decorated to celebrate the holiday season, it is beautiful!

Skating in the Square. During the winter months, the grass in the park is covered and an ice skating rink is set up. Skating begins on Saturday, November 23rd and it is fun for the whole family. Schedules are available so you can make your plans to take a turn around the rink or let the kids take a turn while you shop.

We are getting the store ready for the upcoming holiday season.

If you have visited our store, you know that it is large and it takes a lot to transition to a fully lit building for the holidays.

It sure is pretty at night though.

Black Friday is November 29th, we are open for our normal operating hours (9:00am - 7:00pm) and we are always excited to see family and friends make the trip downtown. There are new items everywhere and we are pleased with our new items from Pendleton such as women's outer wear, men's jackets, towels, purses, cosmetic bags, mugs and much more. We are constantly bringing in new Native American art-work and bead-work. If you are in need of a special gift for the holidays let us help you find the right item.

Saturday, November 30th is Small Business Saturday and Festival of Lights.

Small Business Saturday promotes shopping at your locally owned small businesses as well as indie bookstore. This is a national way of supporting all small businesses. Our downtown has a lot to offer, not just shops but hotels, restaurants, a movie theater, hair dressers, and much more, you really could make a "weekend of it".

The Festival of lights begins at 6 p.m. The businesses downtown shut off their lights, the city shuts off the street lights and then the parade begins.

With beautifully lit floats, it makes the holiday season even more magical and it is fun for the whole family, so bring a chair and some blankets (wintery night) and the route is plenty long so there is enough room for everyone to get a clear view.

Hope to see you downtown and we have more for December so let's talk again next month!
