Halladays Harvest Barn and Flowers on The Square in Bellows Falls always has one of the most attractive displays in its windows, and often, weather permitting, in front of the store as well. Having just decorated for the holiday season this past weekend, the store is especially beautiful now.
That is partly because Halladays will be celebrating their first anniversary at their new location on the Square with a festive open house on Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 30.
Owner Kathleen Govotski said, "Halladays would like to thank area residents for their business and overwhelming support in Halladays' new location. In this tough economy we have appreciated every purchase large and small, which has made our first year such a success."
Halladays will be presenting free roses to the first 100 customers and door prizes including free flowers each month for one year to one winner.
One of the more successful parts of the business has been the Harvest Barn line of dips, soups, cheese and crackers desserts. These and other refreshments will be served throughout the weekend. All 70 Harvest Barn mixes are mixed and packaged at the old location on the hill, employing several local workers.They are all natural and make great holiday gift.
Halladay's has to be one of the more unique flower and gift shops in the area with the newly opened wine and cheese department. They are featuring many local ciders and wines as well as more traditional selections. Wines are priced from $5.99 and up with most bottles being under $15.
They will be featuring a wine and cheese tasting party December 12 and 13 with other dates to be announced.
"We hope you can all stop by to say hello during the Open House," said Govotski. "Take home a free flower and enjoy some yummy refreshments. Shop locally this season and keep our beautiful downtown thriving."
