Christmas cheer!

Last Saturday was our Annual Puttin' on the Glitz event and what a fun, fun night it turned out to be! As you probably know, our little "Spanish Village by the Sea", hosts this event every Saturday after Thanksgiving. Stores stay open late offering drinks and cookies, Christmas
Carolers perform and for all the little ones the night is never over until Santa comes down Ave Del Mar waving from the firetruck!
Our wonderful street gets decorated every year, this is how it looked before the festivities started and vehicles were removed to make room for the thousands of visitors:

Clara and I enjoy participating every year. It's a busy night where we get to see most of our customers and friends...but this year was even more special to us because even though the economy's a little uncertain and everybody is feeling it, people came to the party to support us and the rest of the San Clemente Merchants...They all showed their best Holiday Spirit, were very cheerful and had a great disposition to help the little stores like ours....

The Ladies had a great time shopping for ornaments, jewelry, cards, candles, signs and even furniture! When the cookies were gone, and the candles out, at about 10:30 pm, we went home feeling very blessed to have such wonderful support. Thank you!!!
