Christmas product and gifts ~ 2008

The madness officially begins today!  I have several more boxes of product to stock in the store, and get ready for the craft shows.  We deliver to our first show this Sunday.  (I’ll post the show schedule soon)  Blog entries may be few and far between over the next few weeks.  I just realized that between the store and shows and our antique space that they only day off I have in the month of November is Thanksgiving Day! 

‘Twig’ holiday signs.  The grubby tag attached says ‘homespun’.

Baskets of cinnamon scented pinecones.  Cinnamon refresher oil is also available.

Lots of gift baskets (big and small) and gift mugs and gift sets.

Christmas stockings are just $2.00!!!  And the entire rack they are hanging on is filled with assorted $2.00 items!  List pads, note cards, journals, bookmarks, magnets, picture frames, calendars . . .

Artificial candy, popcorn and cookie garlands.

Handmade homespun Christmas decor.

Fun vintage style tinsel garlands.

Primitive and simple rope garland with homespun fabric ties.

Handmade snowballs.

Wall hanging folk art style Nativity.

Glitter reindeer ornaments.  But I like them just standing on a shelf too!

More gift sets in Holiday themed packaging.

Can’t forget the PRINCESS!  I’ll be putting up a pink Princess Christmas tree at the end of the week when I take down the Halloween tree.

Tin star tree toppers.

PINK PUMPKINS!!!

So, in y browsing of the web recently I saw a picture of a sweet little pink pumpkin.  Don’t know if it was a real one (I’ve heard they come in all kinds of designer colors these days!) or a fake one that was painted.  BUT I WANTED SOME PINK PUMPKINS! 

 I have lots of white and ivory pumpkins that I’ve brought in for fall, so I selected three of them for a ‘Sophie make-over’!

Aren’t they just too cute!!!  Don’t ask me WHY anyone would need pink pumpkins???  But I guess that’s the whole point.  They are ‘just for fun’.

After looking at them for a day I decided they needed a little ‘dressing up’.  So I took this pink berry candle ring, and clipped off a few little sprigs.

Now that’s better!

Literally MINUTES after I added the berry sprigs, a customer bought all three!
