Holiday Shopping in the Poconos | Pennsylvania Ski Resorts

Planning an early winter vacation at one of the Pennsylvania ski resorts? At Skytop Lodge, you can relax, ski, and even get some holiday shopping while you’re here. It’s easy to find unique gifts for loved ones at the many specialty stores and boutiques in the Poconos Mountain regions. In fact, the Poconos are a top holiday shopping destination, especially for antiques and craft specialty stores.


From quaint retailers like Backroad Antiques and Collectibles to the huge 8,000 square foot antique mall, The Quiltery, the Poconos has numerous places to find antiques, collectibles, and rare or vintage items. If someone on your gift list collects Chinese antiquities, Dorchester House Antiques is worth a visit. This fairly new store is quickly becoming known in Northeast Pennsylvania as the retailer with one of the best collections of Chinese art in the area.


Candles and ceramics are two of the most popular crafts available at specialty stores throughout the Poconos Mountains. American Candle and House of Candles both sell candles made in house. You can even watch them being made when you visit. Both stores also sell candy and other gifts, but it is the handcrafted, quality candles that keep people coming back time and again to these well-loved Poconos stores.

If you are looking for ceramics, be sure to check out Blue Deer Studios and Holley Ross Pottery. Blue Deer Studios is a working artist’s studio where you will find truly one-of a kind pieces. If you’re shopping for a Fiesta ceramic fanatic, you can find this popular line at Holley Ross for up 70 percent off retail prices.

There is a lot to do at Pennsylvania ski resorts before the holidays. Why not enjoy a weekend shopping escape before the slopes start to fill up and get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping? Contact us to book your Poconos shopping getaway today.
