Still Time for Halloween and Harvest

Hall-BannerYou know that I’ve been traipsing around Germany and generally having a fabulous adventure. Now, it is back to reality … and Halloween.

I love the fresh, crisp shades that autumn brings. I did look for vintage Halloween decorations at the Leipzig Flea Market but did not spot a thing, Of course, German Halloween production was primarily exported to the United States. So, perhaps we have it all here!
Hall0-CatAmid medical appointments at the Cleveland Clinic and preparations for our trip to Germany, I began a serious efforts to search and find long-overlooked Halloween and fall styles that had appeared in past issues of Celebrate365.CM-candy-witch

I’ve added quite a few pieces in both the “Halloween” and “Opportunities” category themes in the store.  Some are one-of-a-kind.  Others are from Bethany Lowe Designs and Bruce Elsass … long-retired and difficult to find.CC7882

I’m amid a big box & move-it project for the installation of wood floors on the first floor. And, I also need to begin preparing for the weekend show. I think that I will have two trees plus a full table … mixing antique, vintage and contemporary items. I’m planning to concentrate on “onsies” … things that just aren’t worth the time to list them online. I have a number of signed folk art pins and things, single ornaments from my collection etc. For example, I have a huge rolling bin of “extras”that I don’t think I’ve opened since about 2005! And, I have retail merchandise that has never made it online due to my extended illness. Look for lots of bargain pricing … I seriously need to downsize both personally and business-wise. Need a full size 7 ft pre-lit tree? Got one of those stored on the third floor of Apple Tree. I’ll make you a real deal if you can haul it away on Saturday! LOL

I will be bringing things that cover all 4 seasons. In other words, 365 days of the year!  Hope to meet you in Piqua!

Ohio Golden Glow members invite the public to first-ever collectors’ day

PIQUA, OH- Apple Tree Gallery, downtown Piqua’s 365-day Christmas and Halloween store, will be hosting a unique educational and shopping event on Saturday, April 13.  Area collectors are invited to attend.
The store, located at 405 N. Main St., will host the first-ever OhioAntique Christmas meet in partnership with the Golden Glow of Christmas Past.   The Glow is an international collecting organization whose members specialize in anything Christmas as long as the item was made before 1966.Click image posters to enlarge …
Mark Saturday April 13 on your calendar.  The event will be open from 10 am through 3 pm.  Twenty-two Golden Glow vendors will be on hand offering merchandise from all holidays, not just Christmas.  And the items for sale will range from antique, vintage and current holiday merchandise.  Shoppers will find everything from vintage holiday postcards, aluminum Christmas trees to contemporary ornaments from Patricia Breen, Christopher Radko and Mattarusky.  In addition, Apple Tree’s galleries of holiday collectibles will be open to shoppers.
Since Piqua is home to Celebrate365, Connie Porcher will be on hand with a full table and tree displays.  “My storage units are just two miles from the event,” Porcher commented.  “I’d be happy to deliver your shopping choices to you at the event … or you can shop online at the event and I’ll go and pick up your ornaments for you.  This is a unique opportunity for Celebrate365 and we are happy to be participating!”
Glohio’s event won’t be just about shopping.  It’s also a unique educational opportunity.  Glow members will offer three focused lectures along with one make-it, take-it workshop.  Former Glow president Mike Ciancio will speak about Thomas Nast and the Christmas illustrations for which is he famous.  What would the Christmas tree be without lights?  Greg Gregory will offer a brief history of “lighting” the tree from candlelight to electric lights.  What about the toys under the tree?  Jim Thomas will talk about Germany’s Erzgebirge region and one of its best-known Christmas antiques, the wooden Noah’s Ark.  Nikki Beltz will let visitors try their hand at making vintage-style Moravian stars.  Learn how simple strips of paper can be folded and woven into a three-dimensional star that German families used to decorate their Christmas trees.
This first meeting of the Ohio Chapter of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past is expected to draw visitors and exhibitors from surrounding states including Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York and Indiana. The cost to attend all the educational sessions plus the marketplace is $5 per person, payable at the door. For more information about the event, call Apple Tree Gallery at 937-773-1801 during store hours or use the Celebrate365 contact tab here at the top of the page.See you in Piqua!
