The Ultimate Christmas Shop Road Trip Map

Ok, so here is the itinerary.

Thursday 11: Arrive Dallas and fly onto the Texas city of Midland.

Friday 12: Spend the day with the Kathy and Becky at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store. These sisters have a wonderful sense of Christmas style and I can’t wait to see their store. Then fly to Chicago.

Saturday 13: Meet Lisa Frost from Lisa Frost Studio. I love Lisa’s sense of whimsy and it will be wonderful to see her studio and hear about her design process. Then off to Kristmas Kringle in Font du Lac. Drive back to Milwaukee and spend the night waiting for the 6am ferry across Lake Michigan.

Sunday 14: Visit Canterbury Village and Bronners. Two of the biggest Christmas stores in the world.

Monday 15: Visit Just Christmas in the Canadian town of Niagra-on-the-Lake. Then on to visit the Patience Brewster showroom in New York State.

Tuesday 16: Driving most of the day to visit Christmas Loft in Vermont.

Wednesday 17: Visit the second Christmas store on our schedule for New England, Christmas Dove. Then on for a little retail therapy at the factory outlets at Wrentham.

Thursday 18: Make our way to New York.

Friday 19 & Saturday 20: Visit Christmas shops plus a list of other specialty retailers in New York including Little Miss Match, Serendipity, Dillon’s Candy Bar, FAO Schwarz, Macy’s, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn. (some for Christmas, but some for their wonderful niche stores).

Sunday 21: Fly back to Dallas and then take a flight back to Melbourne.

If you have suggestions of wonderful towns, shops or other “must sees” upon our route we would love to hear from you.
