In case you haven’t noticed the lights, trees, ornaments, reindeer, icicles, wreaths, and red-capped gnomes in North Bank Stores, the Christmas shopping season has officially begun. Camas Antiques is ready to give you a holly-jolly head start with its Holiday Open House, this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14 and 15, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days. The vintage goods store will give gifts to the first 50 customers on both days, and there’ll be free kettle corn and hot apple cider. Dealers all over the store, on both floors, will be offering sales on their antique, vintage, upcycled and repurposed furniture, jewelry, accessories, homewares, and holiday decorations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years. (Whew! That’s quite a list!) Special guest and cookbook author Fran Gillette will be signing cookbooks on Saturday.
Camas Antiques is located in the heart of downtown Camas at 305 N.E. 4th Ave. Parking is available on the street. For more details and to get a preview of what’s in the store, visit the Camas Antiques website at www.camasantiques.blogspot.com or “like” them on Facebook.
