Come Make a Glitter House.

Come make a beautiful holiday house On Christmas Eve! Drop in Between 12 and 3PM. Cost is $10 per house.

They are traditionally called “glitter houses” and were very popular in the 30’s. Families built little communities around their nativity, Christmas tree, or train set at the holidays. Quite a few included inexpensive, glitter-sprinkled buildings made of pasteboard.

We have lots of plain little houses today which you can paint, then decorate with glitter, sequins, pom poms and other little treasures.  They come out beautiful and each one has a little hole in the back for you to put a christmas tree light in.

Stop in tomorrow from 12-3 to make one too!

We will be open On Christmas Eve from 12-4 PM. Stop in for some last minute holiday Shopping. We still have lots of beautiful locally made items for you.

We will be closed on Christmas Day and we will be open for the rest of the week till 5 PM.
