  • Store has shut down, not to anyones surprise after all the ridiculous stories of terrible service.
  • I love this store. The owner is a delight and brings me back to my days in Germany!
  • Christmas Village is again open for business. What a delightful place this is; there is so very much to look at. Many of the items also have sale price tags attached. My wife and I always enjoy this shop, as it's the only one of it's kind we have found. I highly recommend a visit; this is a "must see" shop!
  • My review won't agree with the rest of the bad reviews, quite possibly because the male shop owner wasn't present. I walked into the store ready to have to deal with some harshness, but whatever we like buying local ornaments when we travel. Yes there are a lot of signs telling you what not to do. But beyond that everyone in store was pleasant, I carried a coffee into the store even though the sign said no food or drink, nicely asked if I could leave it on the front counter and the nice lady said "sure." Found what we wanted, checked out and while the cashier was giving me my change a coin dropped and fractured the ornament. Long story short, the let me keep the broken one, since it was the last one of a locally made one, and gave me a new different locally made one to make up for it, and were even insisting on refunding the difference, which I refused. TL;DR the two ladies working there are nice, maybe the dude doesn't work there anymore, and as of 3/28/15 they were having a "retirement" sale and everything was 50% off.
  • This store is the worst!! I was so excited to be walking down the street & see a Christmas store! As you walk in you are bombarded by like 50 signs telling you what NOT to do....it was the weirdest thing. And don't even think about taking a picture or you will be kicked out by a crazy old man! no joke! I was tempted to break something just to spite him! I would never make a purchase at this store no matter how cool it was! I really don't even understand how this place is even in business!
