The Pool Place transforms into a holiday wonderland

You might not think of a place with pool and spa supplies as a place for holiday gifts, but the Pool Place transforms when the holidays approach.

Santa comes to visit each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the sparkle and color of beautifully decorated Christmas trees fills the building.

The thousands of unique ornaments make terrific gifts for ornament exchanges, people you want to acknowledge and for yourself.

Themed Christmas trees make it easy to find decorations for people with hobbies, special interests or collections. There are trees with animal themes, wine lover themes, transportation and occupation themes, sports and leisure trees, trees with crystal and silver ornaments, trees with all kinds of birds, angel trees and food trees and trees with old world ornaments. There is even a peacock tree, gorgeous in blue, green and purple.

In addition to ornaments, the Pool Place carries a wide variety of nutcrackers as well as bubble lights and other holiday lighting and holiday décor.

Summer hasn’t completely left the Pool Place and you can still find metal sculptures for the garden, wind chimes and barbecues, like the Big Green Egg, a smoker/cooker.

“It’s a premium cooker,” said Mike Tilson, owner of the Pool Place. “It’s temperature controlled  and the moisture stays in. At the barbecue cook-offs, the Big Green Egg is all you see.”

The Pool Place also has the unique Folkmanis puppets — perfect gifts for teachers and children. Look for the great horned owl that blinks and turns its head around.

If you can’t find just the right ornament at the Pool Place, try its sister store, the Tree House at 327 Main St. in Placerville. Purchases at the Pool Place give you Christmas Bucks good for $1 off at the Tree House and purchases at the Tree House give you Christmas Bucks to spend at The Pool Place.

The Pool Place is located at 4480 Missouri Flat Road in Placerville. Contact the store for more information at 530-622-5386. It is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Bring your camera to take pictures with Santa, free of charge.
