Advent Calenders, Garlands and Elves!

With the 1st of December less than a few week away it’s time to start planning your Advent Calendar of 2011!! We have a wonderful selection we just put up in the store, and are very excited to share them with you! Our Advent Calendars carry on a long tradition. Originating in Germany, Advent Calendars are used to mark the days of Advent leading up to Christmas day.

Garland Advent Calendar
This wonderful garland is actually a Advent Calendar!
24 cotton Christmas socks, letters, and baggies, all ready to be filled with small gifts, notes and treats. This charming Scandinavian style Garland Advent Calendar is also the perfect garland to hang your Holiday cards from!

Pixie Elf Advent Calendar
These Gorgeous pixie elves in a red advent dress or grey dungarees are numbered for each day of advent with pockets big enough for small treats, gifts and notes. The pixies have a row of buttons all the way down the front.
Size: 150cm tall.

Traditional German Paper Advent Calenders:
We have a wonderful selection of paper advent calenders this year that just arrived from Germany. They range from Santa in a locomotive, a hot air balloon, the White house and in a variety of small towns... all with 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture hidden behind it. A great countdown to Christmas. The tradition (that dates back to 1851 in the Protestant parts of Germany) is to open one door each day from December 1 through December 24. Each Calender comes with an envelope.
We have 10 designs to choose from.

Please stop in the shop and take a look at out wonderful calenders. Please call (203 344 1707) with any questions. We can ship these to arrive at your doorstep by Dec 1!
