the drill hall emporium gets into the Christmas spirit...

We found these mercurised glass acorns in a shop closing down in Harrogate, Yorkshire on our last overseas buying trip. They are now hanging on our ladder near the counter.
A decorated Christmas tree greets customers upon entering the store. It is sitting on an early Spanish farmhouse table in between some Spanish oil jars. The crystals are actually chandelier drops!
A wreath with holy hangs on the front of our counter. Along with "Merry Christmas" written with our printer's blocks. Some people have bought small printer's letters to do their own "Merry Christmas" cards.
Red baubles hang from antlers in a large dough bowl. Suddenly, Christmas is less than two weeks away. A very exciting and busy time...enjoy!

    Christmas is coming fast!! Your store is looking gorgeous....I particularily love the mercury glass acorns and the text.

    I hope when I am down your way I will call in and have a look at all your lovely merchandise. I know I will want to bring it all home!!

    Have a great day tomorrow.
