"The Countdown to Christmas is On!"

   
      If you are looking for some special Christmas cards... look no further.

     The Country Loft has the best boxed sets of cards that will warm your hearts this Christmas.

You'll find them sitting in a sweet antique cradle.


     We have many wonderful holiday patterns available that you can complete before Christmas.

     Here's a cute one by "Buttermilk Basin" called Christmas Tree Penny Mat. Each penny could be made up as an individual ornament too!

     We think a festive way to dress up a gift,  is to tie a handmade ornament to the bow!

     Remember... if you just want to pluck a great ornament off one of our many trees, we can help you with that too!


     We are really excited to carry these tiny little "Stars" that you can slip over the top of your tree lights.

     We sell them individually or by the package.

They are so darn cute!


 Thanksgiving and Fall items on our sun porch are now all Half Off.

     You will find pumpkins, patterns, and plates! Wooden signs and beautiful fall leaves and berries for decorating. 
Come in soon for the best selection.
