Looking for the most-festive spot in Clinton to help get you into the Christmas spirit?

That’s probably going to be the Farmhouse Décor Market at 732 S. Charles G. Seivers Blvd., where the Henry family operates a year-round Christmas shop inside their homemade-furniture store.

But at this time of the year, there’s a whole lot more to it than just the usual small two rooms of the building that feature Christmas décor all year long.

Now through the holidays, the entire store is chock full of the biggest variety of Christmas items most people will ever see in one place, including at least 18 fabulously decorated trees.

Owners Rob and Kim Henry are now in their third season of selling the Christmas décor, and recently kicked off the 2020 holiday season with their annual Christmas open house.

Along with their daughter Dana, the Henrys have almost any kind of Christmas decoration imaginable for sale in their huge shop. For the holiday season, besides the two year-round rooms of Yule décor, they also have a 6,000-square-foot bonus room at the opposite end of the building that features the Christmas merchandise.

“Who doesn’t love Christmas?” Kim Henry said. “Since we moved our furniture manufacturing operation to Coalfield, we have so much more space to feature décor, and for Christmas, we fill it right up.

“Last year we put up 20 trees, which takes a lot of time,” she said. “We start in September, and then it sort of filters all through the shop. We added the 6,000-square-foot room last year. And Dana brought in her Children’s Boutique this year.”

Dana Henry said some of the shop’s most-popular items are the Christmas gnomes and the different cardinal décor items. Cardinals have become something of a symbol of Appalachian Christmases.

Kim Henry said she had a customer from England come in and see the cardinals, and didn’t know what they were.

“She said they don’t have cardinals in England, and she loved them,” Henry said. “She bought a lot of cardinal items.”

Some of the items are designed to go with the traditional farmhouse furniture designs the Henrys’ Farmhouse Furniture store creates.

“Barnyard animals are big, along with “Gnomeland,” our gingerbread items and our forest theme,” she said. “It’s all just a lot of fun. We try to re-theme the year-round Christmas shop often just to keep it fresh.”

The store even has a pet-themed Christmas area with a variety of items including pet ornaments and stuffed animals.

“That’s been a real popular area,” she said. “People are crazy about their pets.”

Store hours are Monday-Wednesday noon-5 p.m., and Thursday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The store phone number is 865-806-0534.
