The Elves have been busy!

Yeah - it finally feels like fall! Well, an Arizona desert fall anyway. We enjoy having the doors open.

We are all decked out inside the shop for the holidays. There is a different themed tree in every room. Lots of new "pretties".

Last year we decorated the outside of the shop like a gingerbread house. It was really cute for about a week. We used paper and it rained. (of course!) We've been brainstorming for a couple of weeks and have got some great new ideas. Think candy canes, peppermint and lots of candy! It will be finished by Glendale Glitters, the big event in downtown Glendale, held on the Friday & Saturday after Thanksgiving, 11/28 & 11/29. It will be up through the following weekend, and as long as the weather permits.
New in the shop this week-
From North American Bear - Muffy Miracle on 34th Street - she is so darling in her little flannel coat, red tights and black MaryJane shoes.
From Steiff - the alpaca Dove ornament - really a pretty bird, the details are fantastic.
Pick of the week -
Linda's - Muffy Clara and the Mouse King - really this mouse with his little crown is too darn cute for words. Her dress is a deep red with gold accents and as always, Muffy is darling.

Valerie's - from Natural Life - the word ornaments! Being a Christmas nut these are just plain fun. Joy, Jingle, Believe, HoHoHo, Peace, and Be Merry in reds, greens, and aqua blues - what more could a girl ask for?

We work every day to make sure the products we have in the shop are high quality, well made and above all safe. It brings us great joy when we are able to help someone find that perfect something. There is a big movement this year (for reasons ranging from environmental to economical) to shop locally. We know there are many options available and we appreciate your support of our little shop.
Come by and see us, the bears love the company!
