December 16, 2021 ~ Winds Blowin', Lights Are Out

So the wind this winter has really been wreaking havoc on Great Gifts.  Last week it took out our awning/signage, and today the lights.  But WE ARE HERE and OPEN FOR BUSINESS.  Until 3 pm the shop is pretty well lit as we have the large picture window, after 3 pm you'll likely need a flashlight. LOL!  Open till 6 pm. Stop by to see us!

Update 5:30 pm:  Power is back onl!  Yay!  And we've decided to stay open until 9 pm for your shopping convenience.  Considering the lights are out, it's been a busy day for shoppers!  Seems some of you enjoyed the adventure of doing treasure hunting in the dark.  (Note to selves at Great Gifts...could this be a themed shopping experience....Stay Tuned!!)
