A memory every year

Such a fantastic magical place to visit every winter season! You could spend over an hour there. Such a well thought out holiday decor. The trees are mesmerizing.

Beautiful Christmas decorations throughout the store. Lots of families, couples enjoying “Christmas Feeling”, I can tell. Truly amazing. Everything is “Pricey!” If you have tons of money, you can purchase anything “Christmas” but folks like me, just browsing. Nice place to visit before Christmas.

I have been here mulitple times and it is a magical place with a unique Christmas display. However, today I went there with my family and of course the store was as beauitul as ever but when we went into the cafe for lunch, our food was lovely but the cake was a bit hard. My daughter described it as... More

What a magical place, not only at Christmas but all year round. When you pull into the parking lot you'll feel that your in for a special treat and you'll be sure when you walk through the door. It's on the south side of Escondido on a frontage road and easy to get to but check their wed site for... More

This unique store has all sorts of decorations for those who feel the need to create a seasonal look in their home. When we recently visited, Halloween was going on sale, Thanksgiving was given a few shelves of acknowledgement, and Christmas was everywhere. As someone said, "it's like Santa threw up." Displayed on fake trees and shelves throughout the store... More

Ran across this store while visiting Escondido and spent an enjoyable hour looking at all sorts of Christmas decorations from ornaments to lighting to dolls. There are thousands of items, many hanging on artificial Christmas trees and many unique. Of course, the latter quality comes at a price with many items costing over $100. However, if you've been looking for... More

This is a treasure. Every year the people who design the Christmas decor come up with new and inventive ways of celebrating and decorating for the holidays. The day after Christmas, all items go on sale. All wreaths, trees, garland, lights, ornaments, candles, and holiday decor are for sale. Good selection of various fake trees. If nothing else, go for... More

This gift store is in a city close to San Diego. First let me say I am not a shopper, I always look for the chair nearest the exit so my wife will get the hint. I entered this store and was mesmerized by the large selection of Christmas ornaments, this store is large! Then I discovered an area devoted... More
