Bon-Bons and Boutiques and Hafner's Christmas Wonderland....

Every year Baldwinville, NY holds a shop local event in November.  In the past it was called "Au Chocolat", however this year they called it
"Bon Bons and Boutiques"

Each shop offers delectable treats for the shoppers.
Olives Eatery is a cute little restaurant and boutique with many little shops upstairs:

They always have a buffet of sweet treats and wine and in this little blue house you can find jewelry and other accessories, unique clothing, home decor, baby clothes, local photographs and holiday decorations.  This huge tree was decorated in lovely ornaments:

Savvy Chick is a coop of local crafters and artists and they served chocolate cake and this delicious treat:

Beyond the Attic Door always serves a variety of cake balls and hot chocolate with Butterscotch Schnaaps!

JessiCakes had a selection of mini cup cakes and the lemon was delish!  Their bakery goods made my mouth water:

The town has a bridal shop, hair and massage salon, A True Value that has a huge giftware section, a dessert and wine bar, a cafe (which served hot cocoa made from scratch using an old family recipe), a museum and a fund raising foundation.  All served yummy treats and beverages!

is the place to go for holiday decorating, unique gifts and artificial and fresh trees!  The center is loaded with fully decorated trees and accessories!

As you enter the center, you are greeted with a huge upside down tree and a life sized artificial Santa.  The holiday decorations are stunning and the trees are decorated to perfection!

Maybe you would like a black tree....

...or a pink one...

...or a green one...

...or a wired tree filled with cardinals

...or a traditional tree filled with "woodsy" ornaments...

...or just a small tree dripping with ice?

And look at this beauty:

I couldn't afford this Santa, but I never leave the store empty handed, so what did I buy?

A great cuff bracelet....

...and this adorable snowman ornament:

If you are in the Syracuse, NY area, this is a "must see" during the holidays!

  5. Sitting here by the fire on this rainy morning. I could use one or two of those bon bon goodies. Glad you had a fun time. The new cuff is gorgeous, Miss P. You could make the Santa. Then it could be the size of your choosing. Get that paint brush moving! 😋
