MacArthur’s Farm

December 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Last week we went looking for a place to get a “kissing ball” for the hook on our front steps that we usually hang a plant from in nice weather.
We too a drive down rt. 126 to Ashland figuring the Higgin’s Family (next to Nick’s restaurant) or the Lion’s (or Elk’s, I forget) club who both have shops set up near each other would have them, but neither place did.

We drove a little further down the road to MacArthur’s Farm in Holliston and they had plenty. 
The shop is open until 9pm which worked out good for us since we didn’t go searching until well after dinner.
They have lots of everything- trees, kissing balls, wreaths, plants etc…

The only thing is that I guess they were a little on the pricey side. I never bought one of these before so I paid the $30 that it was priced at , only to see a few days later Market Basket has them out front (and looking just as good) selling for $15.   But it is nice to support a local business and I don’t buy these all the time so I’m not kicking myself too hard about it -although I’m not going to tell my mom (who never reads this) about my discovery.
