There’s a festive boutique nestled in Historic Jonesborough that gives you an opportunity to be walkin’ in a winter wonderland all year long. Unlike anything else in Northeast Tennessee, this specialty shop is more than a store — it’s an experience.
Gabriel’s Christmas is decked with lights, trees and colorful ornaments, so much so that you’ll gasp when you first walk inside this holiday shopping destination. The storefront looks relatively small from the outside, but as soon as you enter, it’s like you’ve been transported to a Christmas village. They’ve got everything– absolutely everything– that you need for your holiday decorating plan. Tired of having the same decor as your neighbors? Gabriel’s Christmas has an ever changing stock of holiday décor and gifts. Not only will you find unique items for any budget, you’ll be patronizing a locally owned business, which is a major plus.
Services, Consultations, and Workshops
if you don’t want to decorate your house, they’ll do it for you. Gabriel’s Christmas offers residential and commercial holiday decorating services. Their team has experience in private residences, hotels, offices, and events. Services feature custom design packages to choose from, and will handle all of the installation. The best part? They also cover the removal and storage of the items too.
In addition to their decorating services, Gabriel’s Christmas also offers in-home decor consultations. For $100, a member of the team will come to your home and help you choose what kind of decorations would complement it best. Once you’ve decided, you’ll get a $50 store credit to purchase the decor that meets your needs.
For those who may need a little inspiration creating your own Christmas masterpiece, Gabriel’s offers free decorating classes in October, November, and December that introduce topics like tree, wreath and garland decorating, as well as ornament making.
Ornaments from Around the World
If you’ve got your own flair and prefer to decorate on your own, Gabriel’s Christmas doesn’t disappoint. The store is filled with a wide array of ornaments specific to destinations, occupations, food, and even wine. Several themed trees throughout the store showcase each set. Our favorite is the travel tree.
Inspired by his love of travel, store owner Gabe Eveland incorporated the travel-themed ornaments along with nutcrackers, Santa figurines, and nativities from around the globe into his collection. You’ll find items that are fair trade and made in the country that they represent.
Christmas Tree Farm
If you want the experience of picking out a Christmas tree with your family, without the worries of allergens or flammability, check out the artificial Christmas tree farm. The trees look so real you’d have to touch them to know that they were artificial. The collection is some of the best in the industry, with a 10-year warranty on the tree and a 4-year warranty on the lights.
More Than a Store
Located along the timeless sidewalks of Historic Downtown Jonesborough, Gabriel’s Christmas is a shopping destination that will inspire your holiday spirit any time of the year.
