Drag box to select area
Bill Saltzman opened this gift and card shop, named after a friend, in 1974. He carries the Dickens Village, North Pole, Willow Tree and Dept. 56 lines of collectibles, as well as a full range of gifts/cards and the incomparable Hallmark musical Christmas ornaments, this year including "Amok Time" with Kirk and Spock jousting to "Trek" danger-theme music as well as tributes to "Iron Man" and "Twilight." This shop really comes into its own during the holiday season, when it has extended hours. All year round, check out the sale table at the door for some interesting finds.
