After my recent post on Christmas decorating, I thought I’d share my favorite place to shop for such things: Santa’s Quarters. Two years ago I bought a 9′ flocked artificial Christmas tree from them along with different colored Christmas ball ornaments. I had always had a real tree and initially wasn’t crazy about the idea of an artificial one, but my husband talked me into it. After we got the tree and set it up I loved it! So much so that I didn’t want to take it down. Now I can’t wait to put it up again this year!
They’ve got every kind of Christmas decoration you can imagine…wreaths, garlands, lights…picks and sprays you can use to decorate your tree, etc, and with way more variety than you’ll find in crafts stores or places like Home Depot or Lowes.
