Christmas Dreams and Wishes: A Letter from the Orton Family

Here in Vermont the nights are getting frosty, and although Christmas is a ways off, you can be sure the kids are already thinking about what they want Santa to bring. Maybe it’s a new game or a special book, or a sweet treat they only get at the holidays. No matter what it is, dreaming and wishing are half the fun!

And that’s true for grown-ups, too! Even though they’ve outgrown the notion of St. Nick, they still have their secret Christmas wish list – it’s just that most of the gifts they really want can’t be found anymore.

Well, you can find them here! Classic games for the whole family to play together, from Monopoly to Mystery date, authentic Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, and Fisher-Price toys for the little ones. We have traditional old-world cakes and cookies, just as delicious as Grandma used to bake. And you can deck your halls with such beloved decorations as our 1960’s-style tinsel trees or lighted snowman from the 1970s. Of course, we also have plenty of cozy PJs, dresses, and sweaters to keep you warm all winter long.

So throw another log on the fire, thumb through our old-style Holiday Wish Book, and rediscover the joy that comes from giving others the things they’ve been hoping for the most, but never thought they’d get.

Wishing you a joyous Christmas season,
