The A. T. Stewart Exchange Consignment & Gift Shop

knitted items and stuffed elf and santa

There’s still lots of holiday decor and gifts available at the A.T. Stewart Exchange Consignment and Gift Shop.

‘Tis nobler to give than to receive.  Isn’t that what we’ve always been told?  I, for one, LOVE to give a gift that puts a smile on someone’s face. Why is that?  For one thing, it’s a way to express gratitude and thank the recipient for being part of your life. Gifting lets us communicate our affection and appreciation.  And – wait for it — it releases endorphins. We tend to feel a greater sense of happiness when we see the recipient beam with joy.  It’s the same feeling you get when you work out or exercise.  And a whole lot easier!

Haven’t finished your shopping?  Or maybe you haven’t started?  Don’t be Scrooge …  For those of you who live for the challenge of the last-minute purchase, check out our sale!  Friday, Dec. 19th – 27th, get 20% off all Christmas merchandise & 10% off all other merchandise!  We will be closed Dec. 24th and 25th and re-open on Dec. 26th.
