Tis the Season
The U cut tree season is here and Joe and I are keeping busy doing things that have to do with trees and wreaths while trying our best to stay warm and dry. It's been rather stormy outside, not the best outdoor weather, so I've been staying close to my heater filling wreath and print orders. Things are looking up though because yesterday the sun was out all day.
First thing every morning with coffee in hand, I go out the studio to package up the most recent print orders then head to the Christmas gift shop to work on decorating wreaths and waiting on U cut tree costumers. Joe handles the outside and Erica and I do the gift shop. After a family selects and cuts their tree Joe puts it on the tree shaker to shake out loose needles and any stray bugs. Then if it isn't too fat he nets the tree for ease in hauling.

In addition to wreaths we carry a unique selection of ornaments and gifts. Some are handmade by Erica and me. All year long I shop for unique items, some new, some vintage, and some items are gently used but too cool to discard. This combination of new and used gives the shop it's own personal style that I hope you appreciate and enjoy when you come to visit.
