December can be a delightful time to escape to Mentone and escape the hustle and bustle of the season. Local unique shops have great gift ideas from a Miracle Pottery bacon cooker to a Scott’s Happy Art creation.
There are many delights in Mentone! Find something special at the Gourdie Shop, Inca Connection, Crow’s Nest Antiques, the White Elephant, the Log Cabin Village, Little River Hardware, Kamama Gallery or the gift area at Mountain Laurel Inn. “Leave Me in Mentone” t-shirts, caps and sweatshirts give twice with all proceeds going toward the programs at Mentone Educational Resources Foundation. Our friends down the road at Orbix Hot Glass Studio will let you come design and blow your own ornament every Saturday this month. On December 8th and 9th, the Rattling Gourd Festival will be held in Summerville, Georgia which is also the home of Vision Gallery.
Until December 16th, the family can enjoy Santa’s Village at Down On the Farm on Saturdays and Sundays. A live Nativity will be every evening from December 21st until the 24th at Sequoyah Caverns. Food is always good for the soul, so enjoy a wonderful meal or snack at J. Spencers, Wildflower Cafe, Moonlight Bistro, Alice’s restaurant, Kamama Gallery, Hardware Cafe and Mentone Market. If the best gift is time with friends and family then come and enjoy the peace and quiet of Mentone and Mountain Laurel Inn. The mountain will inspire and relax you this holiday season.
