Men, we know Christmas is a challenge. But your friendly downtown Winnsboro merchants have the solution. In most shops, the owner is always around, ready and willing to guide you to just the right gift to make you a hero to the women in your life.
Who are you shopping for? Your wife, mom, daughter, sister, or, if you aren't married, the special someone in your life?
The shop owners are adept at finding out what a woman wants. In fact, if the woman you're shopping for shops often at the downtown stores, the staff may know exactly what she likes! At some stores, your gift will be beautifully wrapped so all you have to do is tuck it under the tree.
