Christmas is just over a week away! We know many of you began your holiday shopping months ago, but there is always room for last minute gifts and stocking stuffers. We invite you to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of old-fashioned Christmas decorations and a variety of boutique shops. Here is a sampling of what you may find on your next adventure:
You may know Hidden Treasures Gold Mine for its gold panning activities, but the shop also has the perfect stocking stuffers, from gag gifts like this “make your own Bubble Bath” and “Dynamite Redneck Fishing Lure” to unique hot sauces made to look like MoonShine!
Columbia Clothier’s and Emporium is popular for its selection of hats.
The new store also offers antique tea pots and warm gloves for the winter.
Speaking of winter warmth, Ebler’s Leather shop has these comfortable slippers.
We know you’ll find your fill for Christmas dinner, but don’t forget to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Nelson’s Candy Kitchen is one of the most popular stops in town.
Why not try their best seller, English Toffee.
Dogs deserve some holiday treats too! In addition to delicious cookies and warm drinks,
Brown’s Coffee Shop offers snacks for man’s best friend.
Looking for something more classic? Columbia Kate’s has a tea shop, bakery, and boutique.
The boutique has everything from crocheted children’s and dolls clothes to beautiful jewelry like this.
Let’s not forget the children who so easily enliven the Christmas spirit.
Towle and Leavitt offers old-fashioned wooden toys and puzzles.
And Seven Sisters Soap and Candle Company
has a booth in town where kids can hand-dip their candles in any color!
We hope to see you at Columbia State Historic Park soon! Happy holidays!
