It's two shops in one. You first enter the former, which is a gift shop. But, continue walking through it, and you'll enter the Christmas shop in the back. Retired "DuPonter" Ron Wetzig can give you the back story on many of the interesting home decor pieces here. His wife, interior decorator Jenene Wetzig, also has a hand in the business. "She does all the florals and the fu-fu stuff," Wetzig says with a chuckle. Wetzig says the shop is known for its extensive array of Jim Shore collectibles. Many are now on sale for 40 percent off the original retail price, like these "Blessed Are The Faithful" (Was $39.95, now $23.95) and "Fishing For Rainbows" (Was $26.95, now $16.17) figurines. Where Butterflies Bloom & Lil' Ol' Christmas Shop is at 102 S. Main St., North East. Call 410-287-2975.
