Shop Crisfield!

"Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping." ~ Bo Derek

In a Christmas shopping dizzy? Not to worry. Come on down to Crisfield or shop with us online. We have some great little shops that offer everything from antiques to homemade candy.

The lovely ladies in this photos are offering up some fun gifts for the seafood lover on your list. They also have a variety of books written by local authors. Check out the Tawes Museum site for ordering info.

If you are in the area think about a side trip to Crisfield and take home a little piece of the Eastern Shore.

Dates to remember:

Shop Local Day. MacTavish's Market is returning - December 5.

Breakfast with Santa at the Crisfield Ambulance Squad - December 12.

Christmas Parade - December 12, 6:00pm (the Chamber is looking for a convertible to use in the parade).

Holiday Home Tour - December 13.

"Buying something on sale is a very special feeling. In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me. I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it. I could spill something on it, and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?" ~Rita Rudner

Is there another town in the US which is more proud of their town.

May be it is all the crabs that they are eating. I would love to live here and have crabs every day.

we were taken aback for a moment. we weren't sure what the ladies were supposed to be dressed up as. {we thought devils}

Crabs! o'course!



Patty said...

bARE-eYED sUN: Yep. Dem iz crabs. Those hats are favorites during Crab Derby week and for parades. People come from all over and buy them and take them back to their hometowns. All those planning on coming next year can get yours now and wear them for Christmas. Add a little tinsel and you are can spread Crisfield cheer all around. If can't make it, they make great gifts for your "crabby" friends.

Ann: We love our town! Thanks for the nice comment.

Linda: Thanks for another nice comment. I am glad people are enjoying my photos.

Imac: Sounds like you have been hanging out with Bagman. Heehe.

I love that you mentioned that the Chamber needs the use of a convertible for the parade - the true mark of a wonderful town, everyone helping everyone. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I decorated my tree this weekend - Gray supervised from the comfort of a wing-backed chair.

I know where to go for crabby gifts, that's for sure! Thought of you this weekend while watching Diners Drive-Ins and Dives on Food TV. They were in MD, eating crab, and I couldn't help but wonder why they weren't in Crisfield!
