SEAsons Greetings: Local Holiday Cheer

The Holiday Season is always a magical time of the year. It is especially exciting to be in Rehoboth Beach to celebrate the SEAson, as the city dresses itself in its Holiday finery of bright lights and colorful decorations for all to enjoy. It is the time of year we pause to reflect and give thanks for the multitude of charities looking out for those who can use a helping hand. From the welcoming display of decorated lifeguard chairs on the circle, lighted trees along Rehoboth Avenue, storefronts all decked out to lift our spirits to the decorated Christmas Tree at the bandstand, everyone is in a festive mood. And soon, Santa will reside at his boardwalk house for all to visit as the Holiday Parade marches on. With high spirits, we are busily preparing for the celebrations we all know and love. Holiday shopping for family and friends takes center stage as we carefully look for the right gifts to share during this season of giving. Whatever your pleasure, the businesses of Rehoboth Beach Main Street are all ready to welcome you as they eagerly look forward to presenting all sorts of gift ideas for everyone on your list this year.

For some great gifts, Fun For All Toys on Penny Lane is where you can find unique treasures for the kid in all of us, especially those who have everything.

The Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company at 70 Rehoboth Avenue is sure to have a beach-friendly kite for all of the kite-flying enthusiasts on your list. In addition to kites, they also have a wide range of amazing, mind-boggling, original toys and games to choose from, including windsock, and garden decorations.

And of course, what trip would be complete without a visit to Frank and Louie's Italian Specialties at 58 Baltimore Avenue for an order of nicely cooked cheese rolls, Italian sandwiches, and mozzarella.

We know you will enjoy visiting all of these businesses and others in Rehoboth Beach. You can find out more information on each of these establishments later in this Newsletter. Be sure and tell them you read about them here!

We wish everyone SEAson's Greetings/Happy Holidays and look forward to seeing everyone in the new year, ready to explore together all that Rehoboth Beach and the entire Cape Region has to offer. May we have Peace on Earth and good will toward all.

Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company

Peter Beck

Since moving to Rehoboth Beach three years ago, I have often visited Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company, located right on the boardwalk by Virginia Avenue. The summer boardwalk location is very inviting, with kites, windsocks, chimes, and maybe even toy barking dogs on display in front of the shop. However, when strolling through town, I have never taken the time to visit the other location at 70 Rehoboth Avenue! With the holiday season fast approaching, it was time to stop in!

As soon as I walked in the doors, a cordial, outgoing salesperson greeted me. Everywhere I looked I saw bright, cheerful colors: kites in all shapes and sizes hanging from the ceiling, sea glass windchimes, mugs, flags, hats, jewelry, and lawn signs. There are jigsaw puzzles, family games, and all sorts of unique toys on display.

The toy area was particularly intriguing because there are display tables in front of the shelves. Shoppers can play the games to see if they are appropriate for children. In fact, employees will even take the time to teach you the games if need be!

Looking to buy a kite? At Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company, they will teach you how to fly the kite and perhaps show you a few tricks of the trade. In fact, they will even help you to put the kite together if need be!

Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company has been a mainstay in Rehoboth for around 30 years. Be sure to visit the shop if you are in town looking for some fun, enjoyable holiday gifts. They are located at 70 Rehoboth Avenue—and during this holiday season there’s a Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company Christmas Shed in Schellville. 302-227-6996.
