Annual Christmas Extravaganza!

Wow! It has been simply amazing how many of you have been asking us when our Christmas events are going to be this year - we're thrilled with the anticipation!

In addition to the Country Village Shops' Ladies Night Out (and the Gentlemen's Night Out, which you'll read about in a couple of days!), we're hosting our Annual Christmas Extravaganza on Saturday December 15th, 2012!

From 6pm until 8pm we invite you to join us for food, games, prizes, discounts, and fun! We'll be shopping by Twinkle Light (all the overheads will be off - it's a wonderful atmosphere that really puts you in the Christmas mood!), we WILL be doing our scavenger hunt again with some great prizes under the tree for those who succeed in finding a domino, and we've got some other goodies up our sleeve! :)

The Weed Patch Country Store Christmas Extravaganza 2012!

The Many Faces of Sculptor Artist Dennis Brown

Santa Artist Dennis Brown Santa Scene At Santas Desk

We are SUPER DUPER excited to have artist Dennis Brown - literally known the world over - authorize us as a seller of his amazing original sculptures! Dennis has been sculpting for over 35 years, and was one of the co-founders and the original artist of "Reasons to Believe".

Santa Artist Dennis Brown Elf With Bear

Dennis Brown Santa Artist Santa With Walking Stick

He has been featured in dozens of magazines (from Better Homes and Gardens to 425 Magazine), as well as multiple appearances on Evening Magazine. His pieces grace homes around the world - from our own all the way to the White House, and everywhere in between.

Artist Dennis Brown Santa in Black Figurine

We're still working to add his products to our website, but we've got a decent start so please check it out! These pieces are all handcrafted right here in his workshop in Country Village - about three doors down from The Weed Patch. Each piece is signed by Dennis, of course! Some of the pieces we are featuring are singles - meaning they are the only one exactly like it that Dennis will ever make.

Dennis is perhaps best known for his whimsical and touching Santa sculptures, but he is also extremely excited to be branching out in his art to cover other holidays as well as the fantasy world - so, whether you're looking for a Santa (or a Santa bust, or a Santa scene ...), Halloween, Easter, Wizard, Fairy, Goblin, Dragon ... the possibilities are endless!

We will be working with Dennis on a daily basis to maintain our site, so if it's there it should be available - but maybe not for long! Additionally, we're discussing the possibilites of perhaps some pieces exclusive to The Weed Patch - so definitely watch our site, this blog, and our various social media outlets (Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, Google+) for more information.

Ladies Night Out Christmas Edition 2012!

It's almost the second Thursday of December - and that means that Ladies Night is upon us! Thursday night (December 13, 2012) all the shops in Country Village will be open until 8pm!

There will be food, discounts, games, and all kinds of fun! Collect stamps on your passport and get yourself entered to win a gift basket from the entire Village, and while you're wandering fill out a wishlist - your significant other can bring it back on Gentlemen's Night (the following Thursday) and purchase off of it, and take advantage of free gift wrapping! If you've never been to a Ladies Night Out here at Country Village, then the holidays are the perfect time to come on out!

Last Shipping Day of 2012!

Please note that the last day we will be shipping items out until after Christmas is December 18th, 2012.

We are a small, family owned business - and every year we shut down shipping operations a few days before Christmas to enable us to slow down a very small amount and spend some much needed time with our family.

In stock orders placed by the 17th will ship immediately. If your order is placed after the 17th, we cannot promise that it will ship until the first of the year.

Also, if you are ordering a piece by Dennis Brown, that order will need to be in our system no later than Saturday December 15th, 2012!

If you have items on your order that are not in stock, we will ship what we have, unless you have entered order notes to the contrary.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns, and thanks for your understanding! :)

Merry Christmas!
