Well, he store that I visited is right here at 8, 3rd Street West and it is called 3 Belle’s Christmas Fantasy. This wonderful shop was started as a college fund for a 10 year old girl named Tamya who was worried that there might not be money to send her to college … so her Grandparents Mary and Edgar had an idea. “We all love Christmas so a Christmas store was the logical idea. Tamya is the owner of the store and we are the Managers – all money made from the store goes to the college fund of Tamya, her sisters, brother and cousins”.
When I look at the windows of this unique shop, I feel like I am a little girl looking into an old fashioned store and you will too. It gets even better when you open the door and step inside to a Christmas Wonderland of decorations, most of them handmade and therefore completely unique. You will also find lots of collectable Christmas items as well.
I’m sure you will especially love the Whoville costumes sewn with love by grandma Mary herself.
It isn’t hard to tell that this place was created with much love and there is always something new being built in the back room where you can usually hear Edgar sawing and hammering.
You can visit from Monday to Saturday because on Sunday these Santa’s helpers are all resting up!
If you are looking for a unique gift for other occasions I’m sure you will be able to find something here as well.
