New This Week





Great new stuff is coming in daily, so when you're making your list, and checking it twice........stop by CAPERS for some great gifts, holiday cheer and a shopping adventure. In short, don't get malled. The above are photos of new items that arrived in the store in the last week.......the Woof & Poof's are a customer favorite......each one has its own personality and wears a button from the year it was made. A great collector's item.

We've added a lot of silver and white to our decor this season. Don't miss the tealight logs of borosilicate glass. They come in small and large lengths and are beautiful down the center of a table, on a coffee table or hall table. Hammered silver candlesticks and mercury glass votives add a luminous touch to holiday decor.
