Nothing Like Christmas in New England - Make a Trip of It!

Christmastime is a wonderful time to visit the Goodtime Stove Company. You’ll witness the function of our stoves in action and feel just how warm and welcomed a stove can make you feel.

While in the area, there is much to do and see in honor of the holidays…

Our neighborhood features Christmas tree farms where you can pick your own tree from an enchanting field or forest of trees. pickyourownchristmastree.org/MAxmastrees.php, www.christmas-trees.org/retailers-county.htm

General stores, small town Main Streets and mom and pop mercantiles are ideal locations for picking up unique, one of a kind presents and handicrafts while supporting local merchants. www.wgstore.com, www.shelburnefalls.com, www.explorenorthampton.com/visitor/whattodo/shopping.htm, www.christmasloft.com

One of the top visitor locations in the area is Yankee Candle, featuring a Christmas village and an unlimited variety of candles and fragrances. www.yankeecandle.com,

The quintessential small-town Christmas Norman Rockwell made famous in his Saturday Evening Post illustrations is alive and thriving in Stockbridge, home to the Rockwell museum and to the artist’s inspirations. See Main Street as Norman Rockwell did when he painted the famous “Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas.” www.stockbridgechamber.org,

A memorable family event is the annual production of the Nutcracker Suite by the Pioneer Valley Ballet in Northampton at the historic Academy of Music Theatre. www.pioneervalleyballet.tix.com,

We hope you will enjoy this special time of year. We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you.

Season’s Greetings,
Stove Black and Sara the Stove Princess
