I absolutely love collecting ornaments, particularly from different places of travel.  It’s really cool to find old and antique ornaments at flea markets, garage sales, antique shops or even in grandma’s garage.  I even have newer collections from Target and Macy’s.  Going to Macy’s holiday lane is so much fun for me and gets me into the holiday spirit.  As a matter of fact, this was the first year I got my picture taken with Santa Claus at Macy’s.

Don’t forget that ornaments make fantastic gifts as well.  Some great Christmas decorations and ornaments to collect and give as presents are from designers, Annalee and Kurt S. Alder.  You can find good deals and stock at TJ-Maxx or Marshalls.

This is an amazing new store that opened up in Soho!  Everything is designed by Brazilian creator, Carlos Sobral.  SOBRAL has really cool jewelry and fun accessories for the home.  Sobral carries a diverse collection of key chains, picture frames, plant holders,  dog and cat dishes, and even toilet seats.   Don’t forget the  holidays are coming up. Sobral has wonderful and affordable gift ideas for any occasion.

In addition to creating stunning jewelry and home accessories that are themselves works of art, SOBRAL is a company with a conscience.  As a “green” company, SOBRAL uses recycled industrial waste in his most popular resin collections, and his amazing new “Flash Gordon”collection is made from recycled computer circuit boards.  Equally important,  SOBRAL’s entire production process is eco-friendly, all the way through to his 100% oxy-biodegradable packaging.

If you find yourself in Soho go to the new Sobral store located at 412 West Broadway, New York, NY 10012  phone (212) 226-2710 and website is
