Greetings and Happy November to you! It’s 11/11, make a wish! ;)
There are three events happening this month at Hazel Tree that I wanted to share with you.
First up…on Saturday, November 5, from 7-10 pm we are hosting an art auction to benefit ‘Bring Eli Home’. If you have not heard of this local effort yet, please visit the website dedicated to the cause by clicking here. The event will raise money to help with the ever-mounting legal costs that local mom Sara Edwards faces in the international parental kidnapping battle that she’s been fighting since March 2010. Her story and all the info for the event is available if you follow the link. If you can’t make it out Saturday and want to donate money to help, you can also do so on the website. If you’d like to visit the page for the facebook event, you can find it by clicking here.
Next up…we have our holiday open house on Saturday, November 19 from 11:00-5:00!
(I know, I know…a bit too soon to switch to holiday mode just yet but we have to spread the word in enough time, right?)
This will be a festive open house/party that lasts all afternoon…and we’ll be launching our theme “Unconventional Christmas Trees” that day! (Click here to read all about that.)
We hope you’ll come out and see what local artists have cooked up in the ways of holiday-decor-meets-art with these “trees”. Also for sale during the holidays this year, we’ll be featuring hand-made wreaths by Michael McAlear! He’s the artist who, among many other cool things, makes those intricate pieces of art out of rust, slate and wood. Wait till you see these babies…
And of course, this holiday season, we’ll have all sorts of locally-made holiday decor and gift items for sale. Which reminds me of an image I saw recently…
:) Please join us to kick off the season on Saturday, November 19 from 11-5 for the open house.
And last up…during the month of November (in between the above two events), we are doing a major overhaul to the layout of Hazel Tree Interiors. We’ve been open for about 16 months now, and during that time, we’ve noticed some things that would make people’s design and shopping experience a bit better. We are ready to make the swap this month and it will be our biggest Showroom Shuffle to date! There will be a few days in that time where we’ll be REALLY disheveled, so pardon our mess if you visit then! But, we feel the time is now to tackle this big feat so once we reach the holiday open house on November 19, we’ll be all settled and ready to roll.
So, that’s what we’ve got cookin’ over at Hazel Tree this month. Thank you for reading and Happy November!
