I think you find better deals as January comes in. Hi Farmgirl, To avoid the crowds, I would suggest shopping online — very often the deals are even better than going in-stores!

Most people will here will have to go back to work of course…but I guess that keeps us out of spending trouble! I will be available all day on December 24th to answer any comments or questions about Boxing Day. I love Boxing Day — it means our Christmas Rush is over and we can start packing up and counting how much business we did!
