Holiday Shopping Season Kick-Off

Recently I made my annual trip to Brentwood for what I consider the start of my Christmas season. The primary purpose is to order our Christmas cards from Crane & Co. but also to spend some quality time browsing and shopping in one of my all-time favorite stores: Haven & Co.

Owner Cindy Williams offers an overwhelming array of the loveliest gifts for the holidays and year-round.  I was pleased to learn of their recent expansion so now I can order my cards from their stationery boutique right next door.

Right this way for some of the best holiday gifts of the season!
