I suspect I am not alone in that every year I feel a sense of let down once all of the Christmas decorations are packed away. Where surfaces were once covered with a warmth and glow, everything now suddenly seems stripped bare and completely devoid of character in the wake of their removal. I have, for the last several years, subconsciously counteracted this by re-arranging decor, trying to organize better and adding a few small items that make life in general a little bit better.
The Little House Shop in Wayne. It is a classic breath of fresh air in a world of trendy, disposable home goods. The inventory reads almost as though it was taken directly from the "Displaying the Loot" page of The Official Preppy Handbook. All cliches aside, it is a great place to go if you want something nice that you will enjoy for a very long time.
Valley Forge Flowers, which is sort of a sister store to The Little House Shop.
