I was able to buy two beautiful wreaths from the ladies at the firehouse after you told me that the wreaths were available early. I am so happy that you told me. I love the wreaths and appreciate your suggestion.
This year we are closing up for winter later than usual, and I was afraid that once again I had missed the sale. Several years ago we drove up from Connecticut just to buy the wreaths since we had closed up in October.
Thanks to all involved for sending me home filled with Christmas spirit and beautiful wreaths.
