Small Town Christmas Shopping

We went to the big box stores two weeks ago for some holiday shopping.  It was okay, but I just don't get a sense of the season when I walk through a shopping mall.  We then went shopping last weekend in Owego, NY.  It has a nice, old-town feel.

The sidewalks are decorated.  There are all sorts of local, small, unique stores.

There were choral groups and bands playing.  The sounds of Christmas music filled the area.

The architecture in the downtown is interesting.  You have to remember to look up.

  You never know what you'll find around the corner - maybe even an old ghost sign!

I'd rather be shopping in a small town!  How about you?
