The Christmas Loft

If you love Christmas, and you're ever in Shelburne, VT, you may want to stop by The Christmas Loft.

As soon as you open the doors, you're greeted with the heavenly scent of cinnamon sticks and a snowy village to walk through.

The Christmas village is set at night, with lamp posts glowing and shops lit up with people busily working inside.

It was something right out of "A Christmas Carol."

Can you see Santa flying overhead?!

I love this man leaning out his window to get a glimpse of Santa flying over the houses!

Can't you just smell the gingerbread cookies and hot-crossed buns?

Considering the lighting was really dark and Ted was using his cellphone to take the pictures, they came out pretty well.

After visiting the Christmas Village, there are all sorts of little rooms filled with Christmas and even Halloween decorations. I wish we had a store like this near our house!
