The “Kid’s Only Christmas Cabin” is a place where kids can touch and feel all the Christmas paraphernalia without parents agonizing over an item dropping and shattering. The Kid’s Cabin features merchandise that is under $20, non-breakable and ideal for kids to gift.

Only a parent can understand that nerve-wracking anxiety of bringing their child into a shop filled with fragile and delicate objects.

Many parents felt that way when coming to Copy Magic’s Christmas Cottage.

“Kids would be here with their parents and the parents would say, 'Don’t touch, don’t touch!’” says Copy Magic’s owner Linda Petrone.

That’s what inspired her to revamp a storage room into the Kid's Only Christmas Cabin, a little room serving as an extension of the Christmas Cottage geared towards kids.

“Christmas is for kids! The kids want to touch and feel and in [the Kid’s Only Christmas Cabin], they can do that. That's why I created that little room,” says Petrone. “So they come in here and I say, 'You can touch ad you feel whatever you want. This is your area.’”

All items in the Kid’s Cabin is under $20, things like puzzles, games, cars, frames, ornaments, stuffed animals, Christmas grab boxes, bottle openers and other items that kids can pick up for as gifts.

“It's funny because it says ‘Kids Only Cabin’ and what happens is when the mothers go in there, the kids get mad. They're very possessive of it,” laughs Petrone.

The Christmas Cottage, open year-round, is on its fourth year in operation.

“I love Christmas. In July one year, I got all my Christmas stock and I was unpacking it and people were watching me from the front of the store and asked, ‘Can I buy that now’? It just evolved from there,” says Petrone. “I saw the need for it to be open all year long because people come in from all over the country and they want to buy unique ornaments.”
