Updated in 2016, the hardcover is $30 and the soft cover is $20. Also for sale are note cards, Christmas cards and postcards. 

Costume jewelry will be sold, helping to fund the Mimi Burkhardt Continuing Education Scholarship.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served.

For many, this is a part of their holiday family tradition. The Shoppe is filled with the work of local fine artists and artisans for all. There is a huge Christmas Village with a busy train and other decor.
