Window Views - First Saturday windows


November 7 was the first Saturday in November and downtown City of Frederick celebrated with an open house by the merchants. There was music (stop by my PhotoHunt on next Saturday) in the street, trolley rides, refreshments and businesses open late for our browsing or shopping pleasure. The Frederick Arts Council gallery holds an open house each First Saturday. Christmas wreaths are on display this month. My camera and I wandered around the festivities.

A lower level shop with Christmas items.

Ec'clectibles is a gift shop with a variey of fine gifts. They are now well stocked with Christmas items. I previously posted this window in September.

A few windows are still holding fall displays.

The Museum Shop is the exclusive dealer in our area for Thomas Kinkade paintings. The shop also restores frames and art work as well as framing services.

Christmas seems to start earlier in the U.S. than it does here! My brain is still thinking autumn. ;-)

Christmas comes earlier for each passing year. Or am I just getting older?

I was thinking the same as Stine - we are just getting things unpacked. Our Santa Claus Parade (in Toronto) is on Sunday though....

Good shots of the windows at night.

Kudos for those who still have their fall display!! LOL

I really like the photo of the lower level shop, the light coming from the door is wonderful
I have a hard time with night shots - these are so well captured
