  1. Frosty Friday was a real let down. Very few places open early and not too many people were out. The hard core shoppers are at the big box stores. Volt said they would be open early and they were not. Planners should emphasize the afternoon and evening activities and not try to compete with the box stores.


    • It was slow when we got there but by the time we finished breakfast it had really picked-up. Many of the stores were full and streets had quite a few people walking around.


  2. The Brunswick Railroad Museum is hosting their annual Victorian Christmas celebration on Saturday, November 26 from 10-4 and Sunday, November 27 from 1-4. Enjoy Victorian Christmas decorations, make a Victorian Christmas cornucopia, and sample Christmas cake baked according to an authentic Victorian recipe! Story time featuring The Polar Express is at 1 pm and 3 pm on Saturday and 1 pm on Sunday.


  3. Speaking of Christmas and Frederick…..does ANYONE know where I can get the lovely Christmas cards that depicted scenes in Frederick? Frederick Magazine used to sell them. They are still listed on their website but they are “out of stock” and they tell me that they will probably never get them back in stock. Antietam Gallery used to sell them as well but now they’re out of business. I really really really want them!!
