There is more ornaments than one could imagine. Each and every one is of good quality, and unique. Children are able to go online to text with an elf. There is homemade candy and books for sale too.

OK, so this place is really an old run down building that has an obvious many years of charm and history, but not totally well kept (at least, on the outside). But on the inside, you get the best tasting Frozen Hot Chocolate that you...More
