Country Christmas Shop Hop

Carroll Country Contry Christmas Shop Hop

It may be hard for many of us to believe that Christmas is less than two months away. If you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, then November 3, 4 & 5 is a great time to start at the Carroll County Country Christmas Shop Hop.

Whether you’re

  • looking for decoration to make your house look festive inside or out for Fall, Thanksgiving, or Christmas
  • shopping for gifts for friends and family
  • or you just want to go on a unique shopping experience, you need to do it in Carroll County.


Three communities, Lanark, Mount Carroll, and Lake Carroll, have a nice variety of shops and restaurants to give you an enjoyable day (or full weekend) out.
These small, locally owned businesses feature the works of area artists and artisans and include antiques, a craft mall, a winery, a bookstore, gourmet coffee shop, a quilt shop, a Christmas tree farm, unique gift and home furnishings stores, restaurants and much more.
