Christmas Magic At Moose Mountain

Kris Lovetro and the rest of the Moose Mountain family have tons of wonderful items that are perfect for putting under the tree — and on the tree as well.

Welcome to Moose Mountain Gifts and Antiques, located at 6264 Hardscrabble Road in the wonderful community of Pine, Ariz., just 13 miles north of Payson off Highway 87.

Moose Mountain has been in business for 13 years. The inventory is an enticing mix of the old and new. The shop is constantly changing and there are always hidden surprises for which to go treasure hunting.

The shop has six full-time dealers and about 35 consignment dealers. Its wonderful, gently used furniture changes each week.

Right now, the shop’s forest of trees are decked out with wonderful ornaments and decorations for the season.

There will be specials throughout the store for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Owner Kris Lovetro still has customers and friends who remind her about the small store she first opened 13 years ago. She says she is very proud that the shop has survived the last couple years and has her customers, friends, employees and the community to thank for it.

Moose Mountain is 3,000 square feet of the best the Rim has to offer. Visit this weekend and enjoy the in-store specials.

The shop has three part-time employees and then Kris, who works on Saturday and whenever the girls can’t work.

“We opened in 1998. We mix the old with the new and have great gifts, furniture and more for all tastes,” Kris said.

The store is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday (except holidays); 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday. To learn more, call (928) 476-3044 or e-mail
