Party All The TIme

Thanksgiving week is one of my favorite weeks of the year as the holiday season officially gets underway. I just really like the warmth of the holiday season (actually, I think I kind of like the contrast of the cold outside and the warmth the holidays generate in many people, but anyway, I'll save that mush for another post perhaps).

One of the holiday traditions that has found its way into my life over the past few years is a pre-Thanksgiving trip to the Party & Gifts Super Store on the block between 70th Ave. and 70th Road across from MacDonald Park. I go to stock up on all the stuff I need because Thanksgiving has been held at my house over the past few years.

If you've never experienced this store, I have found it to be one of those kinds of places that look kind of tired and rundown on the outside, but are a neighborhood treasure on the inside! I mean, this place has EVERYTHING you could need for entertaining guests, and just about everything to celebrate the holidays.

Walking through its aisles of products is quite an experience. It's chaotic but somehow it all just works! I highly recommend you pay this place a visit at least once this holiday season.

    Funny you should post this now. I've walked by this store weekly since I moved to Forest Hills four years ago and only went inside for the first time last Thursday.

  2. I agree with you Drake, and thanks for pointing out this local treasure. They do have an eclectic assortment of items. Our kid turns 1 on Dec 24, and we bought banners, and 1st birthday plates and all sorts of stuff for him!
