I’m Connie and I own and operate Celebrate365.com.

I’m a one-woman online shop. Disability retirement in January 2000 (severe fibromyalgia) gradually led me to open the Celebrate365.com online holiday shop.  It”s been a fulfilling way to engage my brain and my creativity while acknowledging my inability to continue a high energy career.

I published Celebrate365 … a journal for the ornament enthusiast through 2011.  Then another health flare  forced me into a less demanding schedule. Now, I share my passion for holidays, decorating and ornaments throughout the year but on my own rather erratic timetable.

I can’t possibly compete with big box stores or huge online mega-sites.

But, I can guarantee personal attention to your collecting needs.  I offer a curated selection of artisan-crafted designs. I enjoy reporting background stories about designers and their collections.

I seek out unique designs and auctions on eBay, Etsy and the world-wide-web.  I share my finds on the Glass Links email list, the Celebrate365.com blog, Facebook and Pinterest.  I confess. I am a holiday-enabler!  From antique to contemporary, I love the holidays and the sentiments they evoke.

When David Strand hosted me last January at the Kurt Adler showroom in Atlanta, I was enchanted with his new line.  The designs are meticulous in the detail and imaginative in design.  What makes these ornaments more expensive than others?  Every stroke of the paintbrush and each application of glitter increase not only the artistry of a piece but its price!  Skilled artisans deservedly command commensurate wages be it in Poland or the USA.

I was so impressed with these sparkling decorations that I wanted to offer a few select styles on the Celebrate365.com web site.  When you visit the David Strand Collection, you find 15 styles available.  Each is truly stunning in its own way!

Imagine my dismay not long ago while browsing an Internet mega-site that I love.  I found the entire David Strand for Kurt Adler collection there … most as dramatically reduced prices.  In fact, several styles were priced well below my wholesale price!

To be fair, there are many good things about the Kurt Adler Company.  They offer the small retailer a very low opening order along with a modest reorder amount.  The company also offers “scaled” pricing.  The greater per-style quantity you purchase, the greater the discount.  That’s how this online mega-store is able to offer such low pricing.  And, that is absolutely their choice.  It’s one of the reasons that even I love them.  I shop there regularly, in fact.

I can’t possibly compete in pricing with big box stores or huge online mega-sites.  However, I can guarantee personal attention to your collecting needs.  But on this Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, I’m doing my best to compete with the Goliaths of the Internet.  I’ve drastically reduced my prices on the entire David Strand for Kurt Adler Collection.  As a passionate ornament collector myself, that’s what I feel I must do.  It should be fun and entertaining to shop for holiday glass ornaments.  While I hope that shoppers will continue to support small business, I hate to see anyone penalized dollar-wise for doing so.

David versus Goliath?  As the David in this one-employee business, I don’t have to consult with an office of advisors before making a management decision. The reduced pricing I’m now offering on the David Strand Collection is here to stay until all stock is sold!

Happy Holidays from the entire staff!

Closed for Maintenance Until March 1

Well, it has to be done! Closed for MaintanenceWeb master Leslie has been after me for well over a year to upgrade the Miva shopping cart software. This seem like the perfect time. Christmas is over. Most of you are taking down your holiday trees. You probably aren’t thinking about shopping for ornaments!

In addition, I’ll be away for most of January and February. I’ll be attending Atlanta’s America’sMart for seven days (Jan 11 – 17). I’ll be previewing the 2012 collections for all of the major ornament designers and manufacturers.

Watch for blog updates, Facebook posts and Tweets during the big reveal!

Progreso Mexico
Some of you know that I have a newly retired husband who detests Ohio’s winters. He didn’t have to twist my arm when he announced that he wanted to “go south” for the winter. Little did I know that his “south” would turn out to be on a beach in Progreso, Mexico.We have rented a house on the beach for a month (see the pool, the beach and the Gulf of Mexico in the photo aabove). I’ve paid for a month of internet service … but let’s see how “high speed” it turns out to be. I have plans to work on the web site update along with working on lots of the images from my week in Atlanta.As you can see, I will be working in heavenly surroundings. I wonder what it’s like to work on the laptop while resting in a hammock? Hmm …
Needless to say, the first 2012 issue of Celebrate365 will be somewhat delayed! Since the site is closed for shopping, you won’t be able to re-subscribe. But, no rush … remember, I won’t be home to deal with your order anyway. Relax … just like me!Watch for blog updates, Facebook posts and Tweets from Mexico, too.
