The Lydons bought four garden statues before heading off to the Elmira Grange to look for more gifts. That's where Gladys Edmiston was selling plenty of holiday gifts and decorations - $125 worth on Friday alone, she said.
"We've had people come in here from all over the place," Edmiston said. "It's surprising to see so many people coming out here from Eugene."

"This has actually been a boon for me," he said, pointing at the "TDTP TDTP Truck Driver Training Program " sign next to the rainbow-colored items. "The thing is, when you use a roll of tie-dyed toilet paper, you know it's the last roll in the house."

Stephanie Castillo of Eugene and her sister, Carrie Condon, passed on the Volcano Candy but found plenty of other gifts at the Holiday Market, leaving with bags full of stuff.
"It's all for my kids," said Castillo, whose sister is visiting from Iowa. "I always bring my out-of-town guests here for a little slice of Eugene. We're just starting our Christmas shopping."
Condon said she was thinking beyond Dec. 25 when she decided to buy a large bag full of fleece fleece, mat of wool formed by shearing a sheep in one continuous operation.
