Christmas 2008

This was our first Christmas at our new location. We had a great season and lots of fun with customers. We added to the front some additional blue woodwork and a white picket fence. White lights, a wreath and greenery set the front for our Christmas season. Rosebud greeted guests during the WindowWonderland event held on the first 2 Friday nights in December. Shops have live Victorian characters in the windows and were open until 8pm. Rosebud Cottage served hot cider for shoppers.

The shop was decorated with a flower tree and garden ornaments. Just inside the store was a Santa table with special Santas, trees, and snowmen.In the bench beside the flower tree we displayed Grandmothers gift giving items. Teasets, dolls, samplers bragging about grandchildren, and toys. Shoppers could come in out of the cold and warm up by the fire while they shopped and visited. In our parlor we have two sofas for weary husbands to rest or friends to take a few minutes to sit and chat and take a break.

Rosebud Cottage also featured a doll tree in the parlor. Behind the fireplace in the background is the wedding gown display. We offer over 100 gowns at 50% discount. New accessories are also available. Christmas time is such a great time, we met some really great people this year.

Nostalgic decorations, ornaments, plaques, books, and dishware were part of this display.

Sale time has arrived and all remaining Christmas is 50% off. We are planning for our trip to the gift market to look for cute Spring items.
Time passes so quickly. Enjoy each and every day!
