On November 6th, Noblesville, IN had their Christmas open houses in their downtown stores.
I know...it's early. But it was First Friday. And it was my friend Teresa's birthday so we decided to go.
The first stop was The Corner Cottage, one of my favorite stores there.
The stores picked a Christmas show theme and they had mannequins in the windows.
Well, they were supposed to, but we only saw mannequins at Who-ville.
And, of course we had to go inside Who-Ville to get our picture taken with the Grinch!
There were Whoville little peeps everywhere!
This store is Lil' Bloomers and it is a children's botique' store....adorable clothes.
Then we went shopping at Logan Village Mall. Lots and lots of booths full of new and antique stuff. And I have to admit, the Christmas windows looked beautiful with all of the Christmas lights and decorations.
Did I mention they had munchies and drinks too!
I love this idea and plan on doing it for Christmas Eve.
Simple yet elegant looking!

Does your town have a quaint downtown area with Christmas celebrations?
