Red and green all over

Oh holidaze – we love you and you overwhelm us too.

Right about now we’re checking our lists 3-4 times a day, making sure we can fit all the errands and good ideas for holiday gifties into the precious few hours of time left before the holidays. But we took a few minutes this morning to wander the aisles of the Co-op and enjoy all the beautiful sprucing up we’ve done for the holidays.

Take some time, look up and enjoy the festive-ness!

The Merc is full of yummy presents – not all of them in red and green. And the holiday sweets are in full effect!


And the Produce is looking mighty festive, sporting its holiday colors. Bring on the Rainbow!


And the Deli is beautiful – we love the way the lights brighten up the long dark mornings and eves.

Two turtle doves played for us this weekend: Jess Gigot and Dean Luce sang Percy the Poignant Poinsettia in honor of the season. Join us this weekend for music as well!
