When You Shop At Kalamazoo’s Christmas Emporium You Help Children In Need
When it comes to Christmas shops in the state of Michigan, there are so many to choose from. Canterbury Village In Orion Twsp unfortunately is not what it once was, but is still active. The Christmas Tree Store in Sterling Heights, unfortunately, closed over the summer before it had a chance to succeed during the holidays.
Then, of course, there is Bronners, which is the year-round Christmas store in Michigan. But there is one store tucked in the heart of Kalamazoo that many people see daily yet know very little about. For the first time since moving to Kalamazoo in 2017, I was able to go inside the Christmas Emporium located off of South Westnedge in the Vine neighborhood.
In 2022 for the holiday season, the Christmas Emporium did not open but this year they are ready to sell for the holidays. But they aren’t selling to make a profit, as every year 100% of the proceeds go towards a great cause.
It varies from year to year, but the proceeds have gone to people struggling during the holidays, people who are sick, and even children in need in the Kalamazoo area. the prices at this Christmas shop are about the fairest prices You will find in the city and is filled with vintage Christmas goods ornaments and so much more.
Take a look at some of the photos I took below, so you can get a glimpse of what it’s like inside.
