A Christmas Experience, Part V of Jingle Bells, Santa Elves and Everything Christmas

Tuesday, November 29, 2016


For me, Christmas never gets old.   Well maybe by mid-January it does, but until then I'm a Christmas junkie and one of my favorite places to experience all the pageantry and elegance of the holiday season is always at Experience and Creative Designs in Schenectady, NY.  It reminds me of being a young girl going with my grandmother to some of the finer stores in Troy...Denby's, Frear's and Peerless, places that were fancy and unlike places my folks might have shopped, places that made a little girl's eyes grow large with wonder.  Well, this big girl experiences that wide-eye wonder these days when I visit Experience at Christmas - with all the sparkle, Christmas at its elegant finest.  I remember as a kid, my grandmother always bought me one gift at Denby's, like mittens or a hat.  I felt so special having something from such a fancy place.  At Experience, everyone can afford something, because although everything looks luxurious and sophisticated, there's something in every price range from the most conscientious shopper to the most extravagant.  We visited during their recent Open House when it was mobbed with enthusiastic shoppers and went back later, on a normal day, when we could take photos.  Come along and feel the magic of a small child's eye as I take you on a tour....





This guy reminded me of my friends at Friesians of Majesty and the stallions!






See what I mean???  Even if you're house doesn't look anything like this at the holidays....you can't deny the beauty and wonder that surrounds you at every turn in this Christmas wonderland.  If you've never visited Experience.....and I'm hoping this post can find one person who hasn't.....you must visit this year.  You'll feel like a child again and I promise you will be able to go home with something to bring that wonder and awe to your own Christmas.
Experience and Creative Design is located on Union Street in Schenectady.  For more information, you can check out their website and Facebook page using these links:
