Follow the Stars November 3, 2018 – Posted in: Blog, Christmas, Gifts
Next week Christ Church Greenwich is hosting “Follow The Star: Nativities of the World.” See inspiring nativities from around the world—from Thailand to Tanzania and everywhere in between—reminding us in a unique way that the good news of Jesus’s birth reaches every corner of the earth.
Because of this wonderful show we have expanded our selection of collectible, hand-made, whimsical and unusual nativities. Maybe you’ll be inspired to start a nativity collection of your own! Follow The Star opens on November 8th. Click here for tickets and information.
Get an early jump on Christmas with boxed cards and Advent calendars. Here are a few of our favorites. And great news: WE ARE OPEN LATE THURSDAYS FROM NOW TILL CHRISTMAS! Happy shopping!
