Holiday Open House,
November 5th and 6th
and
Holiday Market at the Vinery, November 7th
The past two holiday seasons may have been celebrated in new and adaptive ways, but we hope the cheer that fills your homes has not dwindled despite the many challenges we have had to navigate. We have decided that nothing gets us into the holiday spirit like our favorite “Songs of the Season” which we have dedicated as this year’s theme in Primrose. As always, Primrose, our gift and antique shop, will be adorned from floor to ceiling, and sparkling with holiday cheer. We look forward to safely sharing the joys of the season with you.
