Christmas Spirit Logo More New Gifts For Christmas
Issue 51 Celebrating our 22nd Anniversary

This month before Christmas, we're showcasing more NEW holiday handcrafts as a follow-up to our last newsletter. You can easily find them on our Website by looking for the NEW THIS YEAR product labels, highlighted in red, on product search page results. At the top of these pages, click on the button SORT BY NEWEST ITEMS, and pictures of the newest products will appear first on the page.

Even though we ship right up until Christmas, it's best to ORDER NOW for the best selection. Since all our items are handcrafted in America, once they're out of stock, they'll likely not be back in stock before Christmas.

PEOPLE with PAMPERED PETS

In this issue, we'd like to introduce a new section we are calling "People with Pampered Pets". We're kicking it off with "pampered pets" that belong to members of our Christmas Spirit Family. We'd love to get some pictures from you, our customers, with their "pampered pets". Send them along and we'll include them in the next Newsletter.
Our store manager, Beth, recently adopted Scarlett from our local SPCA. The vet thinks she is a Duck Trolling Retriever, but one thing is for sure, she has a mind of her own. Scarlett was very quick to learn the rules, but occasionally puts her PAW down just so you know she isn't a pushover. Like almost all rescue dogs, she wants (and gets) a lot of affection while occupying her favorite spot...your lap.

Gina, one of our newest family members rescued Rio, a Cream-colored miniature Long-Haired Dachshund who is almost 2 years old.  He has the big-dog mentality but loves his canine and feline family members. He is a picky eater and very stubborn but loves to snuggle with whomever has a lap available, usually Gina's. He was a wonderful addition to their family. When they return home, they love his greetings with his tail just-a-wagging.



ISLAND UPDATE - BEAUTIFUL FALL

In early Fall, Santa surprised us with a visit. He took care of a little business with a photo op in our shop. But, since he was on vacation, we didn't press him too much for what goodies he was bringing all of us who are kids at heart. We did sneak one last picture of him relaxing, before he headed back to the North Pole.











We've had a wonderful Fall, finally! It got off to a bit of a slow start weather-wise. But the end of October and most of November have been stellar! It has been warmer and less windy than normal, so the leaves actually stayed on the trees long enough to change color. They are beautiful!

Although many of the stores have closed for the season, we will be open daily from 11-4, except on Thanksgiving Day. The shop will close for the year on Christmas Eve, reopening in April of 2012. But, don't forget, our Website is open ALL year, so when we're closed, visit us online. Happy Holidays to ALL!


WEBSITE NEWS YOU CAN USE

We have an exciting new feature on our Website that makes it easier for you to track your ornaments throughout the entire ordering process. The shopping cart now has personalized pictures of the items on order. We thought that sometimes it was difficult to tell from just the "words" which items were in your shopping cart. We hope the personalized pictures will make your shopping easier. We would love to get your feedback! So Contact Us if you have any comments or suggestions. Quite honestly, some of the best ideas come from our customers, so keep 'em comin'.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"just opened up the box of handmade ornaments which you created for me! They are absolutely beautiful and EXACTLY what I wanted. I LOVE them and cannot wait to send them to my grandchildren at Christmas. Thank you for all and I definitely will be ordering from you again. These are spectacular!! Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you and your family." Patricia from NJ. "Bought this ornament for our son while in Bar Harbor in 2007 and lost it last year (must have gotten left on the tree!). So need to replace it, since I buy an ornament each year for him. Always has to be something hand made in the U.S. by local artisans. Love Maine!" Christina from AZ.
"Love you guys, love the new items, love the selection. I have been ordering from you since 1995 and always find something different to love. Thanks again and keep up the good work." Krystina from MA.
