Midwest Living Review
Prepare for sensory overload in this popular Old Market destination. Think of it as a shopper’s version of I Spy as you sweep the aisles, visually combing them for the perfect ornament.
Glass-blown glittery camper? Check. Flying pigs? Yep. Peas in a pod? Cobs of corn? Those, too. If you’re seeking something more traditional—say baby’s Christmas or musical instruments—good luck deciding. Owner Jim Jorgensen says the last time he checked the number of items, the store carried more than 10,000. Ornaments are arranged by category, such as profession, food and drinks, sports and music, to name a few. Santas, snow globes, Christmas stockings, and strands of garland and lights round out the holiday theme. Collectibles, such as Department 56, Christopher Radko, Steinbach nutcrackers and Fontanini Nativity sets also fill the shelves and display cases. Shoppers who aren’t in the mood for Christmas can find decor for other holidays, including Easter and Thanksgiving. Ornaments from $5.
