Christmas Time Is (Almost) Here!

While you stay with us at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast, don't miss some of our best local shows! With the holidays fast approaching, get in the Christmas spirit with American Music Theater's Annual Christmas Show, Deck the Halls. Playing Tuesday-Sunday through December 30, Deck the Halls features all your favorite Christmas music. And, with dancing, singing, and AMT's own orchestra, you won't want to miss this local holiday favorite.

But, American Music Theater isn't the only Christmas show in town. While you're here, check out Sight & Sound's Miracle of Christmas(Tuesday-Saturday, through January 2). Miracle of Christmas tells the story of the very first Christmas. Watch this beautiful story come to life onstage!

And, if you've got the whole family in tow, look for The Fulton Theater's Family Series production of A Christmas Carol  (playing from November 28 through December 26). See an all-new take on Charles Dickens' classic holiday tale.

Book your seats today for any– or all three!– of these spectacular
shows. And, Merry Christmas from Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast!

Crafters love staying at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast in Lititz PA

Crafters love staying at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast in Lititz PA

Here at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast, we have many guests who are avid crafters, hobbyists and collectors, and there are certainly many places in this part of Lancaster County, PA where they would be very happy!

A couple of friends and I recently revisited the Flower and Home Marketplace to check out their store, since it had recently been sold and undergone a huge face lift.   Let’s just say, if you are into Crafts of all kinds, Home Accents and Seasonal Floral designs, you will be in heaven.  This is 90,000 Sq. Ft of shopping, folks!

When we stepped through the door, we entered a magical space that was a cross between, a beautiful Christmas tree forest and a vibrant Fall wonderland.  The staff was decorating some of the most beautiful and colorful Christmas trees, while customers were shopping the sale prices on autumnal leaf garlands and faux pumpkins and gourds.

After taking in all of the floral section, which was huge, we moved into the candle section. Here we found every imaginable shape, size and color of candle, and all the decorations that go with them. Beautiful glass jars and candle holders, as well as all colors of metal and wooden candle accessories. It would be easy to find everything you needed to decorate a fabulous Fall or Christmas or Winter Wonderland   fireplace mantle, with all the amazing d├ęcor items available.  

I also loved that there were many beautiful vignettes displayed to inspire you as you walked around the store.

We then wandered to the back of the store through a doorway that opened up to a huge craft section!  This store caters to all  kinds of crafters. There are supplies available for scrapbooking and paper crafting, yarn for knitting and crocheting, beads and tools for jewelry making and many other crafts.

In yet another section, are soft goods such as throw pillows and curtains as well as lamps and many wall hangings and framed pictures.  So much to see, so little time!  We had a limited amount of time to look around, but if you are planning to really see all the store has to offer, it is good to know that there is a lovely lunch counter right there in the store.  This is great when you haven’t quite finished looking at everything, but desperately need some food and drink to keep you going.  There are tables and chairs which were occupied by a few husbands, sipping coffee while waiting to meet their wives at the register.

All in all, this is a perfect place to check out while staying at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast in Lititz PA, and it would be a great reason to plan a girl’s getaway for shopping and crafting fun in beautiful Lancaster PA!
