Things have been quiet here on the blog the last few weeks, but we've been very busy behind the scenes. We spent August researching, sourcing and deciding on new products to offer for the holiday season! Now all those lovely new products are "swimming" their way across the ocean and should be here by the beginning of October!
We're very excited about some of our new offerings, as well as restocking some favorites that have sold out on the website. Our popular Extra Large Cabbage Shredders will be back in stock very soon!
We will also be restocking the Fruit Bowl, which makes an excellent hostess gift for any upcoming holiday parties. The fruit bowl also works great for displaying Christmas tree ornaments or other decorations.
Especially for the holidays, we are adding a selection of handmade nativity sets. When I first visited Poland, I fell in love with carved wood nativity sets with natural mangers. They are such a beautiful, unique product that I have been unable to find here in the US. When we started talking about Christmas products, this is the first item we needed to have!
In addition to sets which include the figures and manger, we will also be offering stand alone mangers/creche. Many families already have a special set of nativity figurines, and these mangers will be the perfect way to complete your holiday display.
We will also be featuring another holiday favorite in my family - a nutcracker. Growing up, I always remember my grandparents having a bowl of nuts & a nutcracker out during the holidays. While we already offer the wood mushroom shaped nut cracker, we are expanding on this by adding a gift set which will include the nutcracker and a solid wood bowl. This is another item that makes a great hostess gift!
Finally, we have been working behind the scenes to get everything in place to start offering the DABO block sets online. These uniquely shaped block sets have received an enthusiastic response at our market booths. We have been playing with these castle, farm & house block sets constantly at our house ever since we got the first sample set! You will be amazed at the number of blocks that come in these sets for the price, from 140 up to 220 pieces.
We will be offering both a natural wood set and dyed (colored) sets. We have a limited number of these coming, and once they're gone, we might not be able to get anymore before Christmas. We are the exclusive distributors of these blocks in the United States - so if you want one, order soon! We'll be sure to announce once they are available so you can grab one while they are still in stock.
I'm sure you'll agree that at least one of these products belong on your Christmas list this year! Look for them to start showing up on the website in October. And as always, if you have any questions about these items please feel free to email me at email@example.com!
