Christmas in Old Town Spring
Old Town Spring is a fun place to go any time of the year but if you're in the area during the month of December, it'll serve you a nice dose of Christmas spirit. The town has over 150 small stores selling a wide variety of products, from the inexpensive to much pricier items. I expect most visitors discover their favorite stores and return to them again and again.
My own favorite is Little Dutch Girl, which offers a satisfying selection of salty licorice, in addition to other candies, foods and items from Holland. There's also a wonderful toy store which carries items you're not likely to find very many other places.
During our last visit, we wandered over to an area we don't normally walk by and I discovered a store called ThadS that sells items for the home - items that are both decorative and useful. Studying the pictures afterwards, when I had time to notice details, I realized this is the place to go when I need to buy a gift..... Christmas gifts for example. Apparently, I was so busy taking pictures that I didn't notice opportunity staring me in the face. It seems I'll be returning sooner than expected.
