Behind the scenes at PCC: Christmas in August
I know few of us are ready to give up on summer quite yet. But retailers always think several seasons ahead. We must, to ensure our shelves are stocked and looking splendid when the Puget Sound's chilly mists return and we finally *are* ready for it to be the holiday season. And thus, August is prime time for events like our annual PCC Holiday Expo.

The Expo is a chance for purveyors of chocolates, caramels, candies, gifts and more to show their wares and meet with Deli merchandisers from each PCC store in one place and on one convenient (and decadent) day. Take a peek at some of what you'll find in our stores later this year.
A full complement of Theo chocolate, truffles, caramels and drinking chocolate. Did you know PCC was the first local store to stock Theo?
Sweet treats from The Essential Baking Company in Seattle. The mini yule log is super cute.
Truffles and other treasures from Dilettante, another local chocolatier.
Who doesn't love a happy gingerbread man?
Decadence galore from Fran's, perfect for hostess gifts, stockings, or as a gift to yourself!
Next year I'm definitely going. Now, back to our regularly scheduled season: summer!
