Berkshire Botanical Holiday Marketplace

Early shoppers on Friday evening, December 3, at the The Berkshire Botanical Garden‘s Holiday Marketplace did well even as they were doing good.  A wide array of tempting mostly seasonal items, including wreaths, tabletop decorations, barely-sprouted bulbs in handsome containers, alpaca coats for humans and dogs, a Swedish advent pixie, and charming grosgrain ribbon by the yard had the cash registers ringing non-stop.  The sale continues through the weekend from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 4 and from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 5.
