Editorial Review

Regardless of what time of year you walk into the Christmas Attic, it will automatically seem like it's the holiday season. Lights twinkle, whimsical music plays and ornaments decorate every inch in sight.

Particularly lovely are the theme-decorated trees on the second floor -- one, labeled the Confectionary Tree, is adorned completely with candy-related baubles. In addition to the two floors' worth of Christmas decor, Christmas Attic also sells enhancements for other holidays, including July 4th, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

The store's hours change depending upon the season and the staff, so call first before heading there.
