Hi everyone. As you may have heard or seen, The Christmas Attic has closed its doors.

My mother Nita opened around 1970 in the corner of the second floor, and I know she could have never imagined it would carry so much happiness for so many people. She would have loved that everyone has continued their tradition to bring their kids and grandkids year after year.

Without all of our loyal, amazing customers, we wouldn’t have made it through the decades (almost 50 years!) I am so proud that the business stayed completely in our family, and I know she would be too.

Enjoy a few old pictures of some of the wonderful people who made The Christmas Attic happen. We have truly loved every moment of it.

With love,

Fay and Chris

Stop by The Christmas Attic and browse our selection of Margaret Furlong ornaments!

Margaret Furlong Designs began twenty years ago in a small Midwestern studio. Drawing on her background in painting, pottery, and sculpture, she sought to use her creative talents to celebrate God and the beauties of nature.

While working on a set of dishes with a shell motif, Margaret Furlong studied her drawings and castings of shell images that were scattered about her studio. Moved by the incredible simplicity and beauty of this elegant natural form, she began combining several shell forms - adding a molded face, a textured coil, and a tapered trumpet. The result was her very first shell angel ornament which was introduced in 1980.

Come visit The Christmas Attic and see our festive crackers!

Christmas crackers are a traditional Christmas favorite in the UK. They were first made in about 1845-1850 by a London sweet maker called Tom Smith. He had seen the French 'bon bon' sweets (almonds wrapped in pretty paper). He came back to London and tried selling sweets like that in England and also included a small motto or riddle in with the sweet. But they didn't sell very well.

However, one night, while he was sitting in front of his log fire, he became very interested by the sparks and cracks coming from the fire. Suddenly, he thought what a fun idea it would be, if his sweets and toys could be opened with a crack when their fancy wrappers were pulled in half!

We are open from 11am to 6pm today!

The Christmas Attic is pleased to present to you Willhelm Schweizer's German, handpainted, pewter ornaments.

Schweizer Pewter is made in Diessen am Ammersee, a little town southwest of Munich. A family owned firm for over 200 years, the pewter used is made as precisely as it was from the beginning and the workmanship is superb. Each pewter piece is cast in two pieces of slate and hand carved in a negative relief. The two pieces are pressed together and then filled with hot, liquid pewter. The slates are opened and the figure is created. They are hand cleaned and painted with enamel paints.

We are open from 10am to 9pm today!
