Hope all our friends and customers had a very Merry Christmas this year.)) The shop is closed right now until after January 4th so that the crew can have a few days off for rest and relaxation. Well, they’re gone to Disney World so I don’t know how much rest that will be, but they are sure to have fun))
The shop will re-open in January 4th and be open for a full week. Then on January 11th, it will close again for a week so that we can attend market in Atlanta! It’s that time of the year to pick out new items for the 2016 Christmas season.
Within the next few weeks, spring and Easter merchandise will start arriving. Much of this is already listed on the website so you’ve gotten an idea of the cute things coming in, but there is still much more to list, especially in the spring ribbons.
We have so many new styles of mesh coming! Most of the new mesh is the combination mesh you like so well for your wreath projects. It has a poly (plastic) base with jute threads. This time, the jute threads are dyed in different colors such as pink poly with pink jute instead of natural jute threads. This material is great to work with. It has the holding power of the poly and the jute gives it such a nice texture and look.
Many new colors will be perfect for Easter wreaths! We have new colors of bunny heads coming, along with several styles of bunny legs!
We have lots of new Patriotic items on the way too. Click on the Coming Soon category to see many of these new products.
We’ll be doing more wreath kits this year and the next one on the agenda is a new ladybug wreath, followed by a bumblebee wreath.
We have lots in store for you this coming year at Trendy Tree – Happy New Year to all!
