Merry Christmas--Scut Farkus!

We can't think of a better way to wish you a Merry Christmas than sharing a few pics from our favorite vintage Holiday movie.  We're sure you will recognize these pics and we are guessing your holidays won't be complete until you catch "A Christmas Story" marathon!

"Getting ready to go to school was like getting ready for extended deep-sea diving."
- Ralphie in A Christmas Story

"Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl."
- Ralphie in A Christmas Story

"Oh my god, I shot my eye out!"
- Ralphie in A Christmas Story

"Scut Farkus! What a rotten name! There he stood, between us and the alley. Scut Farkus staring out at us with his yellow eyes. He had yellow eyes! So, help me, God! Yellow eyes!"
- Ralphie in A Christmas Story

The Marathon starts Christmas Eve at 8PM on TBS!

Vintage Santa

At OCT we love all things Vintage and when we came across this vintage style poster on pinterest we just had to share it with you. We've got our own Santa to brag about too--he's hanging out on the front lawn of the old courthouse building right in the heart of downtown Milly--we're so pround of our town and it looks wonderful all dressed up for Christmas.  We're not the only one's that noticed.  The web site "Explore Georgia" posted a great pic of our City Hall in all her Chritmas finery!  Check it out below and come on downtown and enjoy all the decorations-- be sure to stop by OCT!

Remember these boys?

Frank and Joe Hardy are the main characters of the popular Hardy Boys book series that started in 1927.  With more than a million copies sold each year-- these books, with the underlying theme of the triumph of good over evil, are still widely read by young boys today.  Come on down to OCT and pick up a vintage copy of  "The Hardy Boys"--what a great gift for that young man on your list!

The Viking Symbol Mystery

"Elfin around Downtown"

Milledgeville Main Street has done it again!  Downtown Milly was covered up with Elves tonight. All shapes and sizes--Hope you made it down to see Buddy and Jovie along with all the little elves from Lake Country Gymnastics.  A great time was had by all --Hot Chocolate and Caroling Boy Scouts-- Art and Music and great sidewalk sales by downtown merchants.  We love our town!

Jolly Old St Nick ??

We love this pic of our friend Dawn and her precious little girl Clara.  Anyone with kids can relate!  Their trip to breakfast with Santa did not turn out exactly as planned.  We've got the solution--come downtown this Friday night for First Friday and "Elfin Around Downtown".  Buddy the Elf will be available for photos with the kids and adults---and btw---- be sure the kiddos bring their Christmas list because "Buddy" will be delivering them to Santa.  We will have little elves performing and the kids will get to make elf hats to take home. There will be sidewalk sales (be sure you check ou the one at OCT) and art exhibits, music, and much much more.  Gotta love the Holidays in the 'Ville!
