#776 Orange Peel Nativity

Acquired 2017

We were in Galveston, TX, during our 38-day RV tour called Waltz Across Texas. I had been here a couple of years ago for the Friends of the Creche Nativity Convention, so I remembered which shops at The Strand area we visited and found awesome nativity sets! Therefore, I was determined to get back to those places of business. I had my opportunity as Bob was touring the Ocean Star Oil Rig at the waterfront, I walked back to The Strand area where I had been before.At Hendley Market I found this sweet small three-piece nativity of the Holy Family made by hand in Columbia. Why is this so different? Because it is made from dried orange peels! Always looking for different nativities, I had to add this one to my collection. It still smells like orange. Purchased, April 2017 - Cost $28.
