Albion is all decked out with Christmas decorations and activities all around town! Check out some of the photos I’ve been collecting over the past week or two – including some I took at today’s Hometown Holiday Celebration held throughout the Albion merchants.

Another favorite – hard to tell from this photo, but it is a vintage dress made from newspapers and red spray paint – just gorgeous!!! It is in the window of Flying Needle and Thread on Bank St.
