I absolutely love collecting ornaments, particularly from different places of travel.  It’s really cool to find old and antique ornaments at flea markets, garage sales, antique shops or even in grandma’s garage.  I even have newer collections from Target and Macy’s.  Going to Macy’s holiday lane is so much fun for me and gets me into the holiday spirit.  As a matter of fact, this was the first year I got my picture taken with Santa Claus at Macy’s.

Don’t forget that ornaments make fantastic gifts as well.  Some great Christmas decorations and ornaments to collect and give as presents are from designers, Annalee and Kurt S. Alder.  You can find good deals and stock at TJ-Maxx or Marshalls.

Since I know how difficult it is to shop during the holiday season for that “perfect gift”, I will let all my friends in on a shopping secret.  There is this really cute, vintage shop in Islip, Long Island that has great finds and deals called “Perrenial Clothing“.  As a matter of fact, Perennial Clothing is having a holiday sale next weekend.  If you want unique gifts or looking for that sassy party dress give this little boutique a try.  Here you will find tons of  adorable hats, beautiful coats, pretty dresses, shoes, bags, belts, and a huge variety of jewelry – earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, you name it.  They even do clothing rentals, especially if you need something for a special occasion or event.

Owner, Linda Varady is really sweet and will help assist in scoring that particular item you are looking for.
