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!

Christmas is Coming … #1

Christmas Cover, Front Christmas Cover, Back
The Holiday Issue is Coming … It’s at the printer in Erie, Pennsylvania with the final proof approved today.

Here’s sneak peek of the covers. Artist Michael Storrings created the art deco inspired cover illustration especially for this issue of Celebrate365. Santa flies through an art deco sky as his reindeer leap and bound, anticipating the task ahead. Non-traditional holiday hues –black, gray, white, gold, pink and fuchsia – lend a dreamlike quality and set the scene for the gift-filled morning to come.

Inside the Issue:

  • Meet Joellen Church, Landmark-Creations ornaments
  • Christopher Radko writes about how to decorate your dream tree.
  • All Decked Out for the Holidays, a century of change
  • Behind the Design with Maggie’s Memories
  • della Robbia, a Renaissance-Inspired Williamsburg Tradition
  • Pages and pages of Christmas-themed ornaments and folk art
