I know it feels early... after all, we just finished with Halloween! But as we all know, in retail Christmas really starts in November. Today I would like to share with you the most wonderful, magical store for Christmas that you will find here in Phoenix.
The shop is called Rustic Stuff. For most of the year Rustic Stuff houses beautiful furniture and accessories, with design services to boot. Sometime around October 1st Paul and his elves transform the shop into an absolute feast of eye candy for Christmas.
I had the pleasure of working for Paul for almost 6 years. Everything I learned about decorating a tree I learned from him.
I've never had more fun working so hard in my life!
Paul divides the rooms into themes, so there is something for everyone. (This one is Chocolate Mint... or is it Mint Chocolate???)
Treats and goodies without all those pesky calories!!!
This one reminds me of Babes in Toyland...
There are the sweetest bears that look like they are very old indeed, but without that authentic antique price tag!
Doesn't it make you wish Christmas was all year???
I love this tree!!! The ornaments are made with doll heads and all kinds of kitchen utensils!
There are of course lovely angels...
And some awesome artisan angels by Nicole Sayer. (They are REALLY reasonably priced too! )
I really want to go back and bring her home with me.
I wish the photos could show you just how spectacular it truly is. If you feel like getting a little inspiration for Christmas, a drive to see Paul at Rustic Stuff is well worth it. The ornaments and fully decorated trees start selling from the time the decorations hit the floor. Don't wait for December... it will all be gone!!!
