First stop on our tour is the Hadley House Museum. Such a grand old house to be selected to be the keeper of the history of Holly.
Maybe you would like to stay at Crossings Bed and Breakfast. We are lucky enough to have this bed and breakfast within walking distance to town. Wouldn't you love to be sitting on the porches? Annie would love to keep you company.
Hungry yet? Carrie's Delights has the best hamburgers in town (plus many other goodies) and WONDERFUL ICE CREAM! This is a must on your walk around the village. Annie will follow you anywhere for a drip of ice cream!
Bittersweet Cafe is another great eatery. They serve unique sandwiches, salads, soups, deserts... (And you can even dine outside behind the restaurant.)
If you want something a little more upscale, than the historic Holly Hotel is for you. Besides fine dining, they also have an afternoon tea and an evening comedy club. The Hotel is done in true Victorian style and is just beautiful - especially at Christmas!
Now let the shopping begin! First stop just has to be Holly Hills Primitives! Since I have enticed you enough to get you to Holly, I at least want to meet you! We are the only primitive shop in town. Please come by to say "hello".
Now onto the antique malls! Arcade Antiques is a wonderful experience. The inside is done much like a little village, with architectural pieces from around our town. You'll love the sound of your feet on the old log floors. Their dealers are such nice people and you'll just love Pat (the owner). This building was originally a theatre and a casket factory! It is truly a must see.
Main Street Antiques is across the street from me and BIG with an upstairs and all! You'll love this one too. This building was originally McKaye's Hardware and very nostolgic! Lynn will be happy to help you.
Then, down around the corner is the Watertower Antiques Mall (both buildings with a building connecting them). Fun, fun, fun. Just ask for Bill when you come to visit.
Lamplighter is another beautiful home decor shop and tends to lean more Victorian. Bev (the owner) is wonderful.
Our newest shop is My Sweet Holly and caters to the Shabby Chic group. Kathy is full of energy and will do very well here.
Cottage Antiques is another shop that caters to the "white furniture" crowd.
Another new store is the Holly Candle Shoppe.
They specialize in their own soy candles - made right at the shop!
On the corner oppostive from me is the frame shop, which also sells gifts and prints.
How about clothing? Creative Fashion has beautiful clothing and accessories and Jeannie is a big help!
Marta's Loft is another wonderful clothing shop. Such unique items! Be sure to tell Marta that Dawn sent you.
In the mood for a manicure, pedicure or massage? Our day spa gets rave reviews!
Those are the highlights of the town, but we also have lots more. You could do a little slot-car racing, look for some furniture at Winglemire's Furniture Store, see the train museum, have a little Italian dinner at the Red Devil, play a little golf at Heather Highlands and more. Annie and I hope you enjoyed your little tour and that you will come visit whenever you get the chance!
Until next time...
