Around here…

A few things that have caught my eye around the store….white Christmas trees hanging on the ceiling:

Tartan plaid & velvet poinsettias:

Velvet poinsettias with mesh petals, sequins & beads:

Glittering green leaves:

Hmmm….everything involves rather a lot of sparkle.  Go figure.

Labor Day Is Here

For those of you who love hot sweaty days, sultry nights when the air hardly moves at all, mowing the lawn twice a week, stooping in the garden for endless hours, sand sticking to your salty skin and hiding in the seams of your swimsuit, hot pavement and blistering steering wheels, and everything else that comes with the months of June, July, and August in the northern hemisphere, lattitude about 35.8490° N, 86.2272° W .. you can stop reading here.

For the rest of us, those who can’t wait for summer to pass – it’s just 127.5 hours til Labor Day!  Yay!  Football time, leaves starting to change colors, cool mornings – often misty here in the mountains, longing for it to be cool enough to turn on the furnace and get that lovely burning smell the first time around, and hot chocolate – almost here.  Okay, maybe not everyone enjoys the first firing of the furnace ..

Here at Christmas Place, Labor Day also means – Tent Sale time!

A big, white tent, stuffed with goodies at terrific sale prices.  Friday, August 31st through Sunday, September 9th – 10 whole days.  A tent full of goodies kinda like this ..

Now, we won’t have this exact stuff – these are from another year – but there is always a terrific variety of styles and themes through which to browse!  Christmas ornaments & decorations, ribbon bolts, floral stems, figurines, even wall hangings – a bit of everything.

Shhhhh!  Everything will be an extra 25% off, too!  The old adage, “the early bird catches the worm”, just might apply here.

See you this Friday – and remember, shop early, shop often – for the best deals.

P.S. After you’ve cleaned out the tent, be sure to check out all our new spaces and new trees inside the store – we’re really excited about all the changes we’ve made this year, and we think you’ll love how we look.

Memorial Weekend Sale!

Have you ever wanted an item from one of our fabulous displays, only to be told we wouldn’t be able to sell it until the display was removed?  Well, now is your chance – we’re selling some display items – treasures we found languishing in the attic, discontinued items from the basement, and a few things in between.  If you’re in Pigeon Forge this weekend, look for the big white tent in our courtyard and come shopping!

We can’t offer these items on the internet because, in many cases, there is only one of a treasure, but we’ll have plenty of specials on line, for those of you staying close to home for the long weekend – in fact, if we have your e-mail, be on the watch for our first monthly sales flyer.  We’re going to send some extra-special offers to your in-box on the 25th of each month, starting this month.

Christmas Place honors all fallen service men, women, and animals who have given their lives so that we may enjoy freedom today.

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.”  ~Benjamin Harrison

P.S.  It’s going to be a warm weekend, but not to worry – Mrs. Claus’ Candy Kitchen will help – with creamy milkshakes, scoops of ice cream, and ice-cold water & sodas!
