Canterberry Gardens

There’s a very special little Christmas store not far from me. Each year we venture up to check things out.


(These photos aren’t the best since I was using my little point and shoot without flash….but I wanted you to see this marvelous place!)





Everywhere you look is pure GORGEOUSNESS!


Have you ever seen such a spectacular Christmas village?



With 3 trains running through it?





I believe the store was a house at one time, so they have little rooms, fireplaces, etc.


The manager said they close down for 2 weeks in early October to decorate. (Notice the wrapping paper on the walls?  There’s the perfect finishing touch, huh?)





Anything you want to buy for Christmas…it’s available!


Candles?





A mermaid riding a sea horse?





Holiday treats?





Oh and Santa.







Okay – that’s not really Santa. (Mike was a good sport to pose for me even after I dragged him through the whole store….it’s not a ‘men store’ if you know what I mean.)

(Just so you know, Mike doesn’t usually wear a Santa hat and beard….HERE’s the link to the santa hat and beard graphic — just save it to your computer and drag it onto any photo you want.)








You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
