When you come to the store for you next visit, you may not recognize us – except for all the beauty, of course! We’ve got that and are adding more every day .. but the elves have been so busy this winter & spring rearranging, it’s like a new store!
Just a teaser of a couple of pictures to start things off .. here’s my new favorite tree in its “naked” state:
Have you ever seen one this white and lush? When you come, it will be transformed into an undersea vision of Christmas!
Over in Department 56, we’re getting in lots of new products as well. Here’s one tiny peek into how the process begins when we rebuild a display from the ground up.
Lots of possibilities. Does it fill you with anticipation to see the finished display?? I think this is the new home of North Pole Village.
Here’s another favorite of mine – the Winters Frost collection.
Look at how our designer, Kristy, has amplified the cool factor by filling a crackled glass urn with icy white lights and using it as the base for a house. She did it again in this scene for the new Snowbabies “SnowDream” collection – Snowbabies highlighted with vintage silver glitter. A mirror framed in silver and used as a table top reflects the sparkle and brilliance of these figurines, and two votive candle holders turned on end display a couple of charming Snowbabies at different heights so each is a standout - copy this trick at home!
Here are a few more SnowDream pieces displayed on glass bricks (hmmm, we just pulled several of these bricks from a house- now I know why we need to keep them around!). I love the Dream Glitter House, Barn, & Church accessory sets – each set includes a building, one tree, and an accessory figurine.
I’d better not show much more until the designers are finished with their handiwork - the final displays will be brilliant, though, I predict! Next week I’ll show some pictures of Santa’s newly redecorated performance stage, including the animated reindeer flying overhead. The kids will be enchanted!
