Black Friday was so much fun! My mom, Kim and I headed up to Lancaster, PA in search of unique decorations from the markets. You really don't even have to buy anything...sometimes the hunt and the inspiration is enough. We have a typical loop we shop when we're up there: Green Dragon Farmer's Market, Cocalico Creek Country Store, Frysville Farms, King's, The Kitchen Kettle and then another trip to another Cocalico Creek Country Store. This trip is definitely worth taking a Friday off any time of the year!
Decorating day for me took place for me on what we've come to know as Small Business Saturday this year. I love shopping at craft fairs, small stores and with makers on Etsy, so I decided to share some of my new finds on Instagram as I was decorating. Here are three awesome shops I found with New Fallen Snow favorites.
The first shop I want to share is Winfrey Designs out of Birmingham, AL. We're alllll about staying home and Christmasing, as you well know! Winfrey Designs make some gorgeous, rustic, Fixer Upper-Sytle Christmas signs. Bonus, they're having a massive sale on Etsy today!
Then there's The Family Roost from Hamilton, MI. I love their reclaimed wood trees. Think of how fast and easy it would be to decorate with trees in groups. The also remind me of that classic scene from Charlie Brown. They come in three sizes and four colors. Check out their Etsy shop to see sizes and designs.
And finally, you know we love ending the day with a warm drink and a splash of hooch. Remember, our goal is to help you get the ho-hum tasks of the holidays out of the way early so that you too can relax and enjoy "Christmasing" more. I love the Hot Cocoa pillow Erin at Porter Lane Home handcrafts. She is also having a sale this weekend. Check out her extensive selection with super custom options. Maybe this is the daily reminder you need!
So many makers are offering discounts through Etsy into "Cyber Monday." Why not give some unique gifts this year?
