Lancaster County’s Best Kept Secrets

Twelve Shops of Christmas Tour

Can’t tell you! That’s part of the adventure!  But we can tell you there will be . . . unusual home, garden & gift stores housed in unique buildings like barns, historic homes and on family farms, a potter’s studio with demonstrations, an alpaca farm where you can interact with the animals, an artist’s studio on a local farm,  a wonderful food store to fill your holiday tables with yummy delights, handcrafted fine furniture, a floral shop for all your holiday arrangements and wreaths, antiques, vintage and up-cycled items, a consignment boutique to find the perfect holiday outfit and accessories,  a local favorite 1920’s inspired restaurant and more!   There is something for everyone!
