Holly Hills Primitives is a brick and mortar storefront in the quaint village of Holly, Michigan. My name is Dawn Rossell and the shop has been in operation for approximately eight years. About three years ago, my husband, Dick, retired and has joined forces with me. We will ship anywhere in the United States, everything but furniture. We hope you will find that most of our merchandise is high quality primitive wares. Give us a call at the shop and we will get your orders out within two to three days. But don't forget, we still want you to come visit us at the shop too!
Oh my goodness! What a great day we had today. Tomorrow is the last day of our annual Holly Dickens Festival and it will be hard to top today.
We went into town early this morning to watch the "Run Like The Dickens" and the runners and walkers were right in the spirit of things - all 1300 of them!
Some of them even ran in costume!
Zanie Janie stood in her doorway cheering them on!
Our handsome grandson, Gannon, came to help in whatever way he could.
WNIC radio station was there to "M.C." the parade.
Acting Police Chief Mike Storey was at the intersection awaiting the parade.
The Holly High School Band always puts everyone in the mood for a parade.
Oh boy, here comes the festival volunteers and characters.
It wouldn't be a festival without them!
Our family of the year went to Bill and Robin Walters!
Daughter Ashley's 4-H group - Blue Ribbon Rabbit and Cavy Club - had a great float!
Granddaughter Abbey is at the top - the reigning Oakland County Rabbit Princess.
Son-in-law Tony drove the float with some help from granddaughter Lucy.
We had a live reindeer for the children to pet after the parade. Abbey and Lucy spent the night last night and we watched the movie "Prancer". Lucy thought Prancer really came to town!
And Santa came along with him!
The First Baptist Church had a live nativity and handed out free chili and "birthday" cake.
Gannon helped Katie run the turkey bowling all afternoon.
The Sweet Adelines shared their beautiful voices.
And Dan Hayes was as fantastic as ever, singing in Zanie Janie's! It was so much fun and we still have one more day. Thanks to friend Debbie for working in the shop today and sharing in the festivities. Time to get some "shut eye" before our last day of the season. Until next time...
