Since 1913, Spokandy, made in Spokane of course, has delighted discerning chocolate lovers with a wide variety of chocolates. In addition to several other options, we now have these delightful and affordable boxes of 8 delicious chocolates. On the left is the premium truffle assortment, complete with eight different flavors because who wants the same one twice? Unless, of course, it’s dark chocolate sea salt caramels. In that case, an entire box of eight will do just fine! And that’s what we have on the right. Just $14 per box. Excellent for teachers, neighbors, staff, and whoever else might pop along unexpectedly.

Elegant Holiday Choices – Ornaments

Triskele Paper Ornaments

Every year, I scour artist websites and the internet for interesting and affordable ornaments. This year, the most interesting choice goes to North Carolina artist Palmetto Cat Designs for her triskele ornaments.  A “triskele” is the “triple spiral” motif found in traditional Celtic art. It’s made of three strips of paper, which are scored, interlocked and folded to create the triple spiral motif.

This group also features the original artwork of the artist. From left to right, we have cats and dogs saying “We woof chew a hairy Christmas”, candy canes, nativity scene, and Santa and Rudolph. Complete with a gift box, the triskele explanation, and a coordinating “to-from” card. Just $14.

They’re pretty touchy about it too, so watch out. (Update: So sorry! All four have sold out. I’ll ask the artist if she has more available. If interested, let me know!)

Cozy Jackets, Holiday Goodies Now Here

Now that cooler weather is here, cozy jackets have arrived just in time at MaJe Gallery. Get yours today! Available in two lengths (car coat length and below the knee) and four colors to suit your every need.

This fabric  is amazing – the “impossible made possible” is their tagline. It’s called WindPro fleece by Polartec, which balances comfort and protection to retain warmth and resist wind. Check out these benefits:

  • Wind resistant
  • Warmth without weight
  • Water repellant
  • Highly breathable
  • Easy care

I got a jacket from this artist made of the WindPro fleece a number of years ago. It’s still my favorite winter jacket because it’s so warm, but doesn’t weigh a ton, and blocks that chill wind that comes off the water to freeze you to the bones. I don’t know about you, but I hate that the most about our winter weather. My WindPro jacket saves me!

Here are photos of the newest design. Three colors in the shorter version, and the fourth color in the longer version.

All colors available in BOTH short and long lengths, in sizes XXS – 1X.

Call me right away to order as a gift for Christmas! Short version is $340, long is $360.

Quick note: these jackets are generous in size – in fact so generous that most people go down one from their regular size.

Here’s that same jacket in other colors:

Here’s the same jacket, but with purple accents. This is the shorter version, but is also available in the long length.

Five Tips For Holiday Decor

Decorating for the holidays can be a lot of fun, especially when you have beautiful things to put out and enjoy.  Our artisans have been hard at work creating lovely things.  Here are five ideas.

Glass decorations for the holidays

Two different artists are at work here, both working in glass. A self-standing snowman couple enjoy looking at the gifts beneath their tree on this lovely fused glass art work by Bellingham’s Heidi VanderWerff.  Just $79.95.  Three art glass trees in varying sizes are made of clear glass, with edges smoothed out both for safety and it also creates a frosted effect.  Nice and sturdy, these actually come in 5 sizes – $18 – $68.

Fused glass holly tray by Linda Covey

Place your Christmas cookies or cheese and crackers on this lovely fused glass tray by Renton’s Linda Covey.  13″ x 8″ and $60.

Fused glass snowman plate

And how about this one?  Adorable or what?  Sparkly fused glass with a bow-tied and top-hatted snowman in the center.  Another perfect dish for cookies or candies, or simply to adorn the coffee table.  Made in Kirkland by Celeste, this one is $32.

Glass and aluminum tree trio

I’m hearing from several customers that they are giving up putting up a real tree now that the kids have moved on.  Instead, they’re getting this fused glass votive tree trio.  Fused glass adorns an aluminum frame, behind which you can find a “shelf” for a votive candle.  The aluminum is open in the back, so when the candle is lit, it glows through the glass is a very charming manner.  Sold separately, these are $18.50, $21.50 and $23.50 respectively.

Group of glass trees

Another choice made by some in lieu of a Christmas tree is this lovely, simple trio.  This features a stack of fused glass in gradually diminishing sizes.  These are nice and sturdy and have rubber feet so as not to mar your table top.  Elegant!  $18 – $68 (5 sizes available in all).

So stop on by and get adorned for the holidays by MaJe artisans!

See you soon!
