the organizers put together goodie bags for the first 200 people in line and we were happy that we were able to each get a bag, filled with lots of neat stuff from local businesses. (it totally made the 40 minute wait in line in the cold worth it!)
we bought 2 christmas ornaments while we were there and a cute mug. we also picked up a neat piece of history from the town where we live (i'll share more on that later) and i got a custom-made necklace too.
i love how they took the time to elaborately decorate the old department store windows. it took countless hours for the organizers to set up the event and everything really looked great!
