Yes, I am one of those people. I start shopping for Christmas as early as June. I also adore Christmas in July. When Susan of Barbara Stewart called me into her office and told me about Independent Retailer Month I was excited but, it went to another level when she mentioned “Christmas in July.”
Christmas in July at Barbara Stewart Interiors & Invitations on Main is happening on July 15th and 16th (Friday and Saturday) and will feature Christopher Radko’s 2011 Ornament Preview.
Some of you may not be familiar with Christopher Radko so here is the inspiration behind his creations:
As the legend goes, the Christopher Radko Company started with the falling of Christopher’s family tree. After more than 1,000 vintage mouth-blown glass ornaments were broken to bits, Christopher tried to replace them by looking far and wide in the United States and by scouring Polish glassware markets. His quest did not produce even one replacement ornament that met his requirements, and he soon came to realize that his only option was to start completely from scratch. Armed only with his memories of his family’s ornaments, Christopher enlisted a Polish glass blower and together they went to work, trying to recreate his family’s lost heirlooms. It went so well that by 1985, Christopher was in business. Sixty unique designs debuted that year and the rest, as they say, is history.
The Barbara Stewart Interiors Christmas in July preview will feature the KY ornament “Bluegrass Memories.”
