The Santa Spirit

I could make Santa all year round, but especially now. Because for the next couple of weeks I feel like making Christmas and nothing else, I can’t get into the spirit in July when everyone smart is making back stock for the big season. So here are some Santas for the season.

Prim Santa $40
He’s a papier-mâché cutie, who hangs two!

Believe Santa $97
He simply is my favorite still!

Santa and His Reindeers $230
See a picture of this piece on the home page
Here’s to the big Guy, all papier-mâché sleigh, reindeers and Santa. Extra reindeers can be ordered at $30 each, because I’ve been told by someone close to me I don’t have the right number of reindeers

And because I’m in the Santa spirit of giving…Free Shipping.
E-mail me and say you saw your Santa here.

Garfield Farm This Weekend

You just can’t miss this…Dec 1 and 2nd, Sat & Sun, from 12 noon to 7 pm. Middleburg will be showing at Garfield Farms Homespun Holiday Market. We will be in the Burr House in the main room.

This is truly one of my favorite places and a cause we are passionate about.
So come out and see this magnificent 1840’s historic working farm. It’s a must to walk through the Inn in candlelight at dusk, ladies and gentlemen dressed in period costumes. To see the oxen, chickens, and the picturesque beauty of the fields and the barns. You can’t imagine this is in are own backyard.

A percentage of all our sales from the show go to the preservation of the wonderful farm. Please come out and support this unique place.

You can view their website at
Garfield Farm Museum is located 5 miles west of
Geneva, IL off ILL Rt.38 on Garfield Road. For
information call (630) 584-8485 or email
