Shop local and shop Homecrafters’!
Holidays 2020

Make our day, shop carmel
Shop local 

While the holidays this year look vastly different than last year, it is still the season for giving. Looking for that perfect gift? Look no further than our own local businesses. Check out their online shops or visit in person. If you do visit in person be sure to adhere to all safety protocols. 

And, don’t forget that Saturday, November 28th is Small Business Saturday. Make our day and shop Carmel! 

Homecrafters’ Marketplace

We know many of you were disappointed about the cancellation of the Homecrafters’ Marketplace and we have received numerous requests to contact favorite vendors. We have pulled together a smaller virtual Homecrafters’ Marketplace.

Vendors are organized in alphabetical order by shop or maker name. Happy shopping!

Crescent Hill Nursery

Protea wreaths are an exotic and intriguing accent for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. On top of giving wonderful color for the first 3-4 weeks, the wreaths dry beautifully, and can thus be enjoyed for many years. We have some at our home that are 4-5 years old, and still receive the compliments of visitors!! As always, all of our wreaths are backed with a thin layer of redwood/cypress, which allows rings to be soaked (re-moisturized) in a shallow pan/tub/puddle of water to extend both their “green” and scented cycle. Alternatively, a heavy misting of this backing layer will have the same effect. All wreaths are set on 14″ rings, and finished size is between 18-24″ depending on the material used.  Email Crescent Hill Nursery for a digital flyer.
