It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas?

Postby sugarcookie » Sun Aug 22, 2010 10:24 am

Greetings,

I have recently begun seeing some Christmas items at stores such as Hallmark, and a few craft shops. I'm on the look out for other stores to begin putting items out. I know it's a bit early but please feel free to share when you see any. I know Kmart usually puts their holiday merchandise out early....last year, it was early September I believe.
Christmas is the most magical time of the year.

That's good news! Where I live Christmas items are placed on the shelves late due to the hot temperatures. I love knowing people are seeing new Christmas items in August!

No Christmas items at the stores here yet. I saw some Halloween stuff at the dollar store Friday. Sometime around mid September they might start putting a bit out on the shelves.

I did get my card to go pick up the Sears Christmas Wish Book this week. That is definitely a good first step. :D

Thanks for the info...I didn't realize the Sears Christmas catalog was out. Hopefully I'll be getting my card soon. I normally get the JcPenney Christmas book early to mid September if I'm not mistaken.

I'm beginning to see more and more Christmas items out....the Dollar General has a couple of aisles dedicated to Christmas, and Big Lots has a great deal of items. The leaves are falling and it's fast approaching. Before you know it, we'll be seeing Christmas trees and all of the trimmings. I'm way too excited.

Still dreaming of Autumn here in the cactus-shrewn desert! But Christmas dreams abound and QVC has the Joy of Christmas on Saturday! :scene:
