When we decided to open the shop in Vero Beach, FL, we knew we had to have another Christmas tree case. We had a wonderful carpenter in Blowing Rock who did a magnificent job on the first, so we asked him to do another. The painting of the trees was done on two different occasions (about 2 years apart). I have to chuckle because the tree for Blowing Rock was definitely a gigantic "pot" plant (the artist was a local who was often high--he later went on to design sets in Hollywood!). Amazingly, none of our customers noticed! We later sold that case to a friend of ours in Miami at the Naughty Needle. She has since closed her shop.
Wednesday, Macy added the past few year's ornaments to the case. Regrettably, few people really examine the ornaments in the case, so while it prevents loss; it also limits the visibility of the ornaments.
If you look closely, you can see Needle Nicely's limited edition ornaments hanging from the shelf above the Christmas tree case.
