A Holiday Shopping Poem

Dashing through the snow, in a Saratoga open sleigh;
O’er the fields I go, shopping all the way.
My bags are filled and tied, with spirits big and bright.
What fun it is to tell you all the adventures I’ve had tonight, oh!
Jingle Bells, downtown swells of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop for my friends and family, hey!

My first stop was to see 
The Apres-Ski Basket sold at the, 
TOGA Heritage Flagship Store 
Filled with goodies for you and me!

A Fireside Candle to spark the night 
And a Sign to say I’ve Gone, 
Skiing through the hills with glee 
Starry skies to gaze upon.

Back home I snuggled tight 
With a Turkish Blanket and Tumbler I chatter,
Serving cookies to my friends
On an Avenue of the Pines Platter!

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!


Apres Ski with TOGA HERITAGE!

This Collection includes a Signature Fireside Candle, Gone Skiing Wood Sign, Avenue of the Pines Serving Platter, 20oz. Tumbler, Turkish Blanket and a pair of coozies. The perfect compliment to any family gathering.

Now take a ride with me
To Finishing Touches on High Street
Their Ballston Spa location is grand
I can hardly control my tweet.
But what do I see hanging there,
A Teak Horse Head hits the spot.
To gift upon my friends who love
Equestrian goodies they have sought.

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!


Now the Furniture House I see,
Full of wonders all throughout.
It’s a delight to stroll along the floors
“Comfy seating!” I shout out.
My guests are arriving soon,
I have no place for them to rest their head.
But to my wonder it soon appears,
A very lovely Murphy Bed!

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!

A few more stops to go,
Before the sun decides to set.
I pull the reigns and declare out loud
Wow…to Curtain & Carpet Concepts.
Inside is tidy and warm,
Yet my eyes begin to billow.
I can’t help but fall in love you see
With these lovely Rabbit Hair Pillows!

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!

My last stop of the night,
I must find something snug.
My dears I think I’ve got it now
I’ll stop at Jacobsen Rugs!
A setting of bright colors,

Geometric and symbolic too.
A spectacular Gabbeh Rug is perfect
For gatherings the whole year through!

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!

Now my sleigh is full and packed,
I’m off to gift all these.
I wish you all a joyous season,
Full of happiness and glee!
Spend hours reminiscing with laughter,
It’s a special time you see.
I wish you all from my heart to yours
Many blessings unto thee!

Oh, Jingle Bells, downtown swells
Of cheer and festivities,
Oh, what fun it is to shop
For my friends and family, hey!


Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year my Friends!
