This time of year theRenaissance Market unveils their lavish collections of Christmas ornaments and decorations. As you walk in, you are greeted by an upside down Christmas tree rotating from the ceiling with a dazzling chandelier hanging from it. I was overwhelmed while in my search for an INDStore blog item, you know so much to choose from. I even realized it was the first time this season I felt the holidays have finally arrived!
Also available at the Renaissance Market, wine & cheese gift baskets, jewelry, antiques, home fragrances and garden accessories.
Within Renaissance Market is a café, and what a shopping experience it is, I can shop until I am famished. I can eat, shop and admire all the lovely items I want. Take advantage of their holiday hours: Monday - Friday 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and for the relentless shoppers they are open on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. or shop online www.renaissance-market.com.
