Maynard’s, Old Saybrook


Locals have been flocking to Maynard’s for Christmas trees, roping and wreaths forever, but if you’re in the know, you can head straight back through the stacks of greenery to Carole Maynard’s winter wonderland. This tiny holiday shop, only open for the few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, is a glittery tribute to all things holiday. Every year she sources the most delightful ornaments, garlands, and festoons and, seemingly overnight, turns the little barn into a feast for your seasonal eyes. If you’re still on the hunt for a few baubles, bows, French silk ribbons, or just need help getting in the holiday mood head straight here.
