Christmas in the Shenandoah Valley ... the doors and windows of historic downtown Staunton

Zelma's vintage clothing store on Beverley Street is owned by a conservative young lady whose military husband has served in Iraq. Check out the "Win the War" sign in the shop.

Great pictures of Staunton SWAC Girl. It is great that Staunton's downtown still has that "downtown" feeling, especially at Christmas. I miss that in Harrisonburg. All we have in Harrisonburg now are parking lots. It lost its "downtown" atmosphere years ago. Staunton citizens are fortunate !!

Thanks, GOP Rock. Downtown Staunton is attractive and the shopkeepers do a good job decorating and making it appealing as a shopping destination.
