Old World Charm

There is a shop nearby, open by appointment only eleven months of the year.  During the Christmas season the doors are open and welcome us all.  Come in and see how Nakashian-O’Neil celebrates this time of year.

A magnificent tree shines with old world ornaments.  Shimmering glitter, crystal clear glass, Santas, angels, stars, and icicles.  It’s hard to gaze upon it without childlike wonder.

The shop is as old as the antiques it sells, as are the proprietors. Music piped through the store is anything from Ethel Merman to century-old French Christmas music.  Cracked plaster, dark wood and architectural details make this a most charming and nostalgic place.  I imagine if this were my shop I would never want to leave it.

Christmastime at Nakashian-O’Neil is a treat indeed.  Take it in, and take something home ~ you’ll surely find something you like, if only a souvenir of your visit. 

Nakashian-O’Neil is located at 23 West 6th Street, St. Paul, MN and is open to the public without appointment through Christmas.
