Isn't that what Christmas is all about?? The recollections of holidays of the past, the nostalgia and the smile it puts on your face, even when know one is looking.
Each year I attempt to top the displays from the year before in hopes of HiHo becoming part of someone Christmas past memories of the future. A trip to down town Buffalo at Christmas time was a huge outing, we put on special clothes and had to hold hands, while we walked by the windows. I even recall referring to certain stores not by name but as Christmas stores.
This last picture is of a grocery store, the trees are stacked cans of food....you can't beat the inspiration!!!

This pair of ginger jars match the platter.
A bit more traditional this pair of vases are a good size and nice weight.
No matter what your decor , I'm sure HiHo has something for your home.

This small and charming two tiered table, SOLD has inlaided details just below it's square top.
I couldn't resist this magazine rack, SOLD with sorted slots up top and a stacking shelf on the bottom.
This is a good size with storage below, a china closet, not too big, not too small....just right and in time for Thanksgiving.

These new color patterns have a vintage flare and are some of the best quilted textiles HiHo has ever offered.

The view from across the street....the blue chairs didn't last the weekend . People are still inquiring about them, go figure???The days of the open door may be over for this year soon, so be sure to take a drive through the valley and enjoy the colors before they are gone....
This photo of me was taken just after finishing the set up and when my nerves were starting to get the best of me....1500 people on their way.
This is a shot of Susan after a good drink at the bar, as she said "much easier to smile after a drink".
See I'm a lot more relaxed now. We handed out HiHo buttons that say, HiHo HiHo it's off to shop I go and Salt Water Taffy, spoke with hundreds of people and gave them HiHo business cards.
The HiHo men wore their new shirts and drank and ate all evening. They look like HiHo security, but they really did have a good time.
I was interviewed by cable 6 the local station and Everett was asked to assist, by holding the microphone.
