#435 Shabby Chic Nativity

Acquired 2005

While shopping with the family on our traditional day after Thanksgiving in Sonora shopping spree, one of our main stops, where we spend a lot of time, is Gottschalks. Wendy Fernandes, my niece, and I noticed this beautiful nativity set in the Home Décor Department, at 50% off! With a large copper leaf tree as the stable for the nativity, the set includes seven pieces. Along with the tree, it includes the Holy Family, three kings, and the camel. Each piece stands about 6 to 8” tall, is a ceramic Shabby Chic styling with the copper lace trim. This set was so different and unique that it was a must to add to my collection. Wendy was enthralled with the beauty of this nativity but beyond her budget for that day. I thought this would be a perfect Christmas gift for Bobby and Wendy and so I bought two sets, one for me and one for them. Purchased November 2005. Purchase price at 50% off, $59.95.
