WREN'S NEST HOLIDAY SHOW  Nov. 9th 2-8, 10th & 11th 11-6
5220 SE 33rd Place

Hand Painted Pilsner Beer Glasses with Damask designFall has arrived along with the rain and wind that is blanketing a canopy of russet autumn colors on my lawn.  I am thinking I need to don my raincoat and gloves, gather the rake and lawn bags and tackle this never-ending project.  Then I look around at my many art projects that are in various states of completion and decide that days like this are perfect for playtime with my paints and clay!   As I am painting, re-purposing, creating and pricing my products I am amazed at the amount of merchandise everyone has produced that will be available soon at our Holiday Show.  All of my vendors are busy with their unique specialties which will add to the abundance of products for our customers.  With the addition of the vintage treasures and food items our show will be a relaxing and rewarding event for all of our shoppers.  Friday is opening day and we will welcome our family, friends and customers with delectable treats and beverages.  So mark your calendar and plan on getting an early start on the upcoming, busy gift giving and decorating holiday season!

Holiday musings

I just picked up the latest entry from the abundance of holiday magazines now available at our local stores and was amazed at the creativity and subtle but effective decorating ideas it offers.  It's hard to believe that the Wren's Nest Holiday Show is quickly approaching and I am still thinking of new projects to create.    My practical side however is realizing that I need more months to complete my already-in-process items, but my creative side is thinking that maybe those glittered star ornaments can still be squeezed in. 

Thankfully I have a bevy of talented artists that will also be showcasing their projects at our November event.  This definitely gives me comfort knowing we will have a wonderful assortment of goods to offer to our customers.  From original paintings, beautiful jewelry, one of a kind hand decorated glassware to elegant or whimsical Christmas decor we have something for everyone!  Nestled amongst these items we have an assortment of carefully selected vintage goods.   Freshly baked treats, handcrafted kitchen goods, and creative greeting cards are just a few of the many items available that will simplify your gift giving needs and add to your holiday keepsakes. 

 As we move closer watch this site for updates and featured highlights/photos on our vendors and their creative merchandise.  Don't forget to mark your calendar.

 We know our show will make your holiday shopping a fun experience that will satisfy your gift giving needs.  As we are busy creating and our inventory is changing daily watch this website for weekly updates.  Next week we will be focusing on highlighting some of our artists work plus adding photos of their inventory.
