On the corner of Sutter and Wool streets in Folsom sits a shop that’s been bringing holiday cheer to families for more than 45 years. “It’s family owned and always has been,” said co-owner Marjorie Yohner of Dorothea’s Christmas. The shop is packed full of items for decorating, displaying or playing. “It’s Christmas all year here,” Yohner laughed. “We have a lot of people who collect Christmas.” The store also carries collectibles such as Byers Choice carolers. “They’re handcrafted in America,” she said. “We also carry Fiesta Ware, which is very popular. It’s made in America and is has no lead. It’s been around since the 1800s and is still made in the original factory.” Thanksgiving and fall-themed items have cast the store in a hue of oranges and browns. “We also do seasonal,” Yohner said. “We have a large selection of fall gifts — everything from Indians, pilgrims, turkeys and even a Santa in a fall motif.” To learn more about Dorothea’s, visit them at 801 Sutter St. in Folsom, call (916) 985-2714 or visit dorotheas.com.
