About Us

Nestled in the North Georgia mountains lies a charming Christmas boutique open year round.  At Always Christmas we specialize in not only Christmas trees, ornaments, and décor but also in year round gifts and adornments.

We were a lifelong dream of our creator, Faye Wine.  Faye moved to Hiawassee from Florida many years ago to open her pioneer store, The Hen’s Nest.  A few years later she convinced her husband Ray to “retire” from his construction business and become our resident Santa and Always Christmas was born.  Faye left this world a few years ago but her spirit lives on through the beauty in our stores.  She had an eye for design and a classic yet eclectic taste that she passed on to her daughter, who now runs the store.  We’re certain she’d be proud.

When you come to our little town make sure you visit our showroom. We have two floors of unique collectibles, beautifully decorated trees, thousands of ornaments, wreaths, stockings and many ideas for you to use in your own home.

We understand that you may live a bit far to come visit our quaint town so we are available to take your orders over the phone.  Call us, speak to one of our elves, and they will get your order out on the next sleigh!  While we’re not quite at the North Pole, we are your headquarters for everything Christmas.  Even Santa needs a quiet little mountain home!

Always ChristmasWe not only sell a variety of Christmas items, we can also teach you how to design your own winter wonderland!  Or maybe you just need help in getting those lights on your Christmas tree without losing a limb? Perhaps you’ve always wanted to display a Snow Village.  We can even show you how to design your own wreath for year round use!
