Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Christmas decorations at A Christmas Shoppe, part of Revak Nursery in Lakeville.
Revak Nursery, a decades-old family pine farm, decks holiday halls with custom wreaths and decorations from its adjoining Christmas shop, which brims with thousands of ornaments and gifts. Customers can rifle through shelves of Russian woodcarvings, including a hand-painted pink Santa ($59.95), and fine European glass ornaments, such as a glossy white bauble with a beaded poinsettia ($17.95). An oval birch-bark container ($31.50) adds festive charm to homes with the intricate floral carvings on its lid and the stockpile of forged naughty-or-nice lists in its hollow core. A Pisa Pizza snow-village display ($35) showcases a miniature Italian eatery, with miniature diners inside feasting in celebration of their miniature holiday bonuses.
