In the quaint town of Spencer, Massachusetts stands a historic barn dating back to the 1800s. The exterior is decorated with Christmas wreaths and garland, but it is nothing compared to what you'll find when you step inside!
At the Oakwood Farm Christmas Barn it is Christmas all year-long! (Or at least from May to December.)
The barn is a floor to ceiling holiday wonderland with sparkling ornaments and decorations covering every square inch.
And we weren't kidding about floor to ceiling - the roof and rafters are covered in colorful baubles!
The store is owned by Spencer resident, Jim Devereux who began converting the authentic country barn into MA's favorite Christmas shop nearly 50 years ago.
In addition to owning and operating the Christmas barn, Mr. Devereux creates many of the items by hand in the barn's upstairs workshop.
You can find him there most days tinkering on some project or another with his shy, but gorgeous Irish Setter Clancy by his side.
Locals and visitors from out of state and even other countries flock to Oakwood Farm to marvel over the gorgeous Christmas creations and chat with the friendly owners and staff.
In addition to ornaments and decorations, you will also find fresh apple cider and local honey for sale. Mr. Devereux ensures all your purchases are lovingly packed in tissue paper and wrappable boxes.
While just about everything at the Christmas Barn is for sale, the shop also features vintage ornaments and decorations from the 1950s and 1960s. The special case is a fun bit of holiday nostalgia for the shop's older visitors.
And be sure to check out the ornaments with special origin stories that give the decorations more meaning.
From now through Christmas Eve, the Oakwood Farm Christmas Barn is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 - 4 and Sunday from noon - 4. Closed Tuesday.
These hours are dependent on the weather and Mr. Devereux recommends calling the shop before visiting on stormy days at 508-320-0389.
Also from now through Christmas Eve you will find 15% off all ornaments and 10% off everything else during the Christmas Barn's customer appreciation sale!
