But for one store out in Grayland, their unique gifts and daily vicissitude of decorative array, Pomegranate maybe one shop to think about this holiday season. Heather and Holly Tucker run the home décor and gift store that has a 13-year history.
"People always ask about the name of the store, it really is not much of a story," said Heather. "It was the color we painted the walls in a previous location. We wanted a name that was unique and that people would remember."
Now finishing its first year at their new location, 1634 Hwy 105 in Grayland, Pomegranate fits well in the walls of the old "Grayland School".
"I am not sure exactly how old the school is, but we do have pictures inside the store from the active days of the school."
One picture that rests behind the checkout counter is noted to be circa early 1940's and at least one customer has identified a relative in the picture.
Open seven days a week from 11 am to 5 pm, the shop only closes for major holidays, and the week leading into the holiday season.
"We close down to decorate the store and try to get everything out for Small Business Saturday."
The store has a very unique take on home décor and has a variety of gift ideas from beach items with seashells and posters to fine dining accents to dress up any dining room or living room. There is also a baby section with several knit items, clothing and toys. Set and ready for the holiday shopper, Pomegranates has at least five different Christmas trees with various decorations to help those who need ideas for the festive season. The store also carries jams, jellies and sauces, candles, jewelry and so much more.
The store does get the occasional tourist from as far away as New Zealand but loves to see the local crowd during the holidays.
