Getting Ready
2015.10.22 00:14:00

I was just describing my relationship to Christmas to one of the craftspeople whose work I carry. Everyone who has ever had a career in retail understands. I don’t decorate my home, I decorate my shop. I pour everything I have into finding, presenting and selling great gifts. And by the time Christmas gets here I am ready for a long sleep. Don’t get me wrong. I love this time of year. I just don’t have it in me to decorate my home and bake cookies and go to parties.



coaster leafWhy am I talking about Christmas in October? Well everything is arriving now. Unpacking, entering items into the computer and merchandising will be followed by taking pictures and updating the website. I will then be ready for my busiest two month of the year. I am looking forward to them and to seeing all of you.


I have found some great new items this year such as Robert Jones of Baltic Designs created votive candle holders, coasters, trivets and ornaments made from laser cut and layered Baltic Birch. I hope you all stop in and see what is new and if you are unable to please visit our facebook page for new arrivals. I can ship anything I have in stock even if I haven’t had a chance to put it on the website.
