It was 1974 when Barbe Jenkins-Gibson decided to fulfill her dream of starting a Christmas store. As one of the first holiday themed shops, the Christmas Cottage established a long tradition of providing unique products of outstanding quality and superior customer service that have made the Christmas Cottage a "must stop" destination for visitors to the Oregon Coast since the day it opened.
The store has continued to grow to include a selection of thousands of ornaments on every imaginable theme.
Our mission is to make the Christmas Cottage shopping experience enjoyable in every way. No matter what your interests, age, or budget, our friendly staff can help you find an item that is just right for you.
We're committed to providing first-rate customer service, and guarantee complete customer satisfaction with every purchase.
