Bronner’s: Christmas Land

On our way to our Christmas destination, I requested that we stop at the Bronner’s, the world’s largest Christmas store. Because, while some may see it as kitschy and over-the-top, I love it.

No, this isn’t the work of Fritz from The Nutcracker – seems just hours after we visited, the store was visited by some Grinches. You’ll be glad to know they’ve all now been brought to justice.

  1. Love love love the pig ornaments! 😆

    I picked up some glass flying pig ornaments a few years back – they’re among my favorites, and no, I don’t know why, except that they tickle me.

  2. I’ve visited that store on at least three occasions and loved the time I spent there.

  3. Yes, that famous Christmas store is quite fascinating any time of the year, but even more so during the holiday season! While I have only been there twice in my entire life, I loved it also! And after many years have passed since my last visit there, I do still have in my collection several ornaments from the store. Thanks for your short tour and comments for 2010!
