Main Street Christmas

Join us this Saturday, Dec. 4th in Gilbert...a town just 4 miles north of Ames.  A small town known for great schools, pride in community, a darn good tractor club, and a handful of dedicated businesses.  We are hard workers and it shows.

Now this little Christmas celebration on Main Street isn't all fussy and fancy...but it will be good hometown fun!  JB Knacker and The Left Bank Studio open our doors at 9 am sharp.  We'll be cozy and welcoming and brimming over with Christmas fluff and gifts galore.  There will be hot cider & coffee, gourmet cocoa and tasty Mimosas to quench your thirst and warm your souls.  Nibble on quiche, fruit and baked goods while you shop.  The Left Bank Studio will artistically wrap any gift purchased inside their brick 'n mortar shop.  The Gilbert Historical Society will set up camp inside JB Knacker's doors and will be spinning folklore as well as selling their ever popular Gilbert school slates throughout the day.

Down the street at Open Flame, enjoy wine & beer tasting w/ appetizers from 2:30-4:30 pm.  The old fashioned small town Christmas celebration will conclude w/ carols and tree lighting at 5:15 pm while we wait for Santa to arrive via the firetruck at the fire station at 5:30 pm.  Plenty of popcorn and fellowship for everyone as the little ones share their Christmas wishes w/ Santa 'til 6:30 pm.

And as a nice ending to a perfect small town day, a drawing for a workshop (for up to 5 people) presented by both JB Knacker and The Left Bank Studio plus a $20 gift certificate to The Open Flame!

I am going to try and make it. Sounds like fun! I also heard there is a consignment store in town.
