Calling all you folks who love Christmas ornaments and artists – the 1st annual Decatur Holiday Ornament is here! Created by clay artist Malena Bisanti-Wall, this is the first in what will be a series of hand-crafted ornaments especially for Decatur.
The Decatur Tourism Bureau launched the series and the ornaments are available with “Holidays in Decatur” or “Christmas in Decatur” inscribed. Each ornament is hand-crafted and each ornament is different. The ornaments are $18 and all proceeds go toward creating the 2013 holiday ornament.
You can find the ornaments in Decatur shops including Wild Oats & Billy Goats, Little Shop of Stories, and Boogaloos. Many thanks to Weatherly Copenhaver, owner of Wild Oats, who coordinated this first in what will be a series. If you are interested in submitting a design for the 2013 ornament, let Weatherly know or leave a comment on this blog post.
Go ahead and make your purchase now – quantities are limited and if you spend $200 in a Decatur shop in November and bring your receipts to the Community & Economic Development Department in the City of Decatur, you will receive a $20 gift certificate to a Decatur restaurant (while supplies last). Remember to “Keep it Indie-Catur” this holiday season!
