They have some really great garden themed items, unusual pumpkins, flowers, sale items and obviously Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations and gifts. 

Emma's Bloomers, Inc., 303 W. Front St., Annawan IL is really packed with a variety of holiday and garden items.  This little store has some quality locally-created items in addition to their flowers, decorations and gifts.

Hathaway's Gift Barn, along side Hathaway True Value Hardware, is always a excellent place to do your gift shopping.  Mary Hathaway carries holiday and gift items in addition to things for the garden.  Her inventory changes almost daily.

Market Alley Wines, #59 Public Square, Monmouth IL has an excellent selection of wine in addition to gift baskets (custom or already composed) and many new and vintage wine accessories.  And the owner is perhaps the most beautiful and friendly person you'll ever meet in retail - well that and she's my daughter but I'm sure you'll agree. . .

All shops have friendly caring owners and service - plus nice products.  Start your holiday decorating and gift buying locally.  It supports your neighbors and gives you good value for your money.
