The Christmas Shoppe by Melody Carlson

 It's magical. It's whimsical.  It's Christmasy.  It is a wonderful novella.  Just in time for Christmas season.  I totally enjoyed this book.  So puts you in the Christmas spirit.  Very charming modern day Christmas read with a touch of magic ~ a magical shop where people find a touch of healing from the past.

The small town of Parrish Springs is not quite ready for Matilda Honeycutt.

A strange older woman with scraggly gray hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matilda is certainly not the most likely person to buy the old Barton Building on the town's quaint main street. When it becomes apparent that her new shop doesn't fit the expectations of Parrish Springs residents, a brouhaha erupts. After all, Christmas is approaching, and the last thing the town needs is a junky shop run by someone who looks and acts like a gypsy. But as townsfolk venture into the strange store, they discover that old memories can bring new life and healing.

Once again, Melody Carlson delivers a Christmas story that will touch hearts and delight the senses. Sure to be a classic, The Christmas Shoppe is filled with the special magic the best Christmas stories share—that intangible mixture of nostalgia, joy, and a little bit of magic.
