Well it’s almost Christmas here in Waldport. Our tree lighting festivities are coming up and although its been lit for a couple weeks to increase season cheer, they are going to do it officially with a bridge walk and goodies and fun! All of the stores seem to be ready for shoppers. You would be amazed at what one can find here in little ol’ Waldport.
There is a little jewelry store on hwy 34 close to the Alsea florist. It’s called Doug and Mim’s and she has the prettiest sparkles and pretties! Her prices are outstanding too! And when she smiles the whole place lights up.
Then there is the Holiday Saturday Market at the Senior Center this weekend! I can’t wait to go to that. Wonder what cool things I will find for everyone. Just about every shop here has gift cards or gift certificates too.
The Chocolate Frog actually has a holiday special for 20% off all of theirs through Christmas Eve. Lil’ Joe’s General Store has wonderful furnishings and antiques too! I got a beautiful side hutch there, wait til you see it!
We ate at the the China Restaurant the other night and it was soooo goooood!
And remember Waldport Drug and Gift? Well they just moved a 1/2 block south and are Hi School Pharmacy now. They carry all of the oh-so-good huckleberry chocolates still and all of the gifties we used to spend hours shopping for.
We even have a new store in town over by the barber shop. I saw his jewelry and stuff the other day, oooooh I want some!
Last weekend my girlfriend was in town and watched me make a hat and she wanted to do it too. So we went across the street to Family Fabrics, and did you know? They had the same loom I have but I had to go all the way to the valley for mine! It’s getting easier to shop local!
Christmas is going to be so nice this year with all of the holiday lights the city put up on the poles and the businesses sparkling! Wind? What wind? We don’t even notice anymore ha ha!
Anyway, just wanted to tell you all I love you and hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!
