“What beautiful detail on his face” is what we often hear when we are in the Clothtique area of the store. And with such a large variety, at such very affordable prices, you’re sure to find one that matches that difficult-to-buy-for person on your list.
“Clothtique is best known for it’s realistic folds and wrinkles, and a magical ability to keep a hold on the past. Centuries ago, European craftsmen invented imaginative ways to clothe the dolls and figurines they created. One method proved so successful in bringing beauty and realism to their artistry that it was secretly passed down from one generation to the next. The early founders of Possible Dreams happened upon this method of ancient, stiffened cloth and immediately began improving on it. Ceramic, resin and many other materials are used to insure exact balance and fine sculptural detailing as figurines posed in action. Authentic accessories are added to support the theme of each piece. And of course our best illustrators and sculptors are employed to capture the magical expressions that have made our faces untique favorites. The result is Clothtique, a miraculous process that brings magical enhancement to every Santa our Possible Dreams artists design.”
Certainly the line of Santas and Snowmen that gets the most attention here at The Christmas House is the Heartwood Creek line by Jim Shore. We don’t find too many folks that DON’T fall in love with these fabulous, yet affordable, pieces. Appearing as if they are carved wood (they are actually made of resin), these Santas and Snowmen often feature a quilted pattern. Prices start at just $21.50. Some of you may remember Jim Shore from years ago when we carried his “pencil Santas”, of which he was the original designer and creator. Jim is a down-to-earth “guy next door” southern gentleman who enjoys designing the Heartwood Creek collection for our enjoyment. We just wish he would visit us more often so all of you could meet him!
A favorite line of Santas, Mice and Angels in the muted tones of Christmas
A wonderful combination tells the store of both the birth of the baby and the Santa who brings him a gift
