'literally give me ****'.
Sheesh, did they at least put it in a bag for you?
Try Sara Lee's honey mustard. Very good.

    Wow, I thought all them Christmas Tree places where gone for the year a couple months ago... Huh... Must have something good going on there in Maine!


    I have also seen them in Massachusetts..
    I love that store. I cant go in and buy just one thing.
    They have such a good selection of miscellaneous Bull****, and I get lost in there.
    In fact, that is the only place I can buy my Portuguese Muffins, Bolo Levados is there.
    Its 25 miles away and I usually buy 5 packages. I am good for a 6 pack a week of those sweet muffins.
    But, I just found out that they are also popular in SC, and am sure I can find them there.
    I also got an email back from a online shop who said that their most popular places to ship them is NC and SC..
    Funny..
    But I dont know why they call them Christmas Tree shops, Its more like an upscale big lots IMO.
    With many more items available.
    Not just Christmas items...

      Christmas Tree Shops is (I believe, still) a New England phenomenon. Sort of a prettied-up job lot, many are in areas frequented by tourists and have a "theme" (like a windmill store and a Cape Cod Village store). Often beloved by women and dreaded by men, they focus on household decorative items (tchotchkes) but occasionally offer a cigar humidor or power tool for the guys. Some okay housewares (once got a Peugeot pepper mill there for about 7 bucks) and a decent "gourmet" food section which moves and is usually quite fresh.

      Closest thing I've seen nationally is Cost Plus/World Markets, at least the one where I buy wine when I'm in San Francisco. Christmas Tree merchandise will lean more toward the "olde Yankee" style and they don't sell wine.

      But they sell my all-time favorite condiment, Grandmothers Sweet Pepper Relish.

          A condiment worth looking for is McCormick's Mayonesa which is nothing but Mexican mayonnaise made with lime juice instead of lemon, in fact the product is a light lime green color. Taste and texture are excellent. Little pricey at about 3.50 for a 28 ounce jar, but the taste is worth it. Made in Mexico. Check the Mexican/Ethnic section of your grocery. I get it at Kroger.

              Arby's now has some spicy sauce in their condement line up. It's their bbq sauce with a kick.

              Mr. Mustard has an awsome sweet and sour mustard.
