This year is our first year for participating in this benefit for our local Twin City Hospital. Nathan Paternoster made the two wreaths that we donated to this worthy cause. Hope and I went up tonight to view all the gorgeous wreaths and more that were on display at the Trainmaster Inn in Dennison, OH. Below are the pictures of our two wreaths that we donated. We hope that if you are in the area, that you will stop by and place a bid....it goes to such a worthy cause!
Below is the article that appeared in the Times Reporter newspaper for this special fund raising event...........
DENNISON, OH —
Twin City Hospital Employee Auxiliary will host its 10th annual Wreaths and More Extravaganza beginning Sunday. This year’s event will again be held in the Trainmaster Inn at 408 Grant St., Dennison.
Donated wreaths and various holiday decorations will be on display Sunday from noon to 8 and Monday through Nov. 21 from 11 to 1 p.m. and 4 to 8. Adult admission is $2, which provides unlimited entry to the event. Children are admitted free. Cookies and punch will be served.
Those wishing to purchase a wreath or decoration may do so by placing silent bids throughout the event.
The past several years of the event have featured several unique and original pieces such as an Ohio State University themed wreath, a wine lovers themed wreath with a gift certificate to an area winery, and other sport and collector’s themed decorations.
There also have been beautiful centerpieces with greenery, pine and hurricane candles.
Those attending also will have the opportunity to tour the first floor of the Trainmaster Inn.
“The Trainmaster Inn is the perfect showcase for our fundraiser,” said Tiffany Poland, chairman for the event and an Employee Auxiliary member. “The bed and breakfast is fully decorated for the Christmas season and is truly a sight to see. It is well worth the $2 admission to see the inn, not to mention the added bonus of our event.”
“We are excited to house the Twin City Hospital Employee Auxiliary Wreaths and More Extravaganza at the Trainmaster Inn again this year,” said Greg DiDonato, owner of the Trainmaster Inn and a Twin City Hospital board member. “This is a great fundraiser for the employee auxiliary, and all of the money benefits the hospital.”
And below are more pics of some of the wreaths and more that are up for bids.....

'Tis the Season everyone......and I'd like to wish all of you Happy Holiday Havoc and Merry Mayhem!
This year, I think the 'Big Jolly Old Elf" is going to have his hands full around the work shoppe! We all know what a great job the elves do every season in fulfilling the requests of all of the 'good little boys and girls' around the world......but it seems as though all is not "sugar plums and figgy pudding" among the ranks in Elfdom. It seems there a few ornery troublemakers in the lot......so in order to keep an eye on those that have potential to create mischief, the "Big Guy" has made the offending few wear a bit of black on their elf uniforms. LOL! I guess it makes it easier to pick them out in the vast wee crowds.
This doll was made by Joyce Stahl of Enchanted Productions. Village Gift Shoppe just lists them for her under our eBay shoppe ID. You can see Joyce's current dolls that are listed on eBay by stopping in the shoppe located at 106 N. Walnut St., Gnadenhutten, OH.
Happy Havoc will end on Sunday Nov. 15th at 9:30pm EDT-6:30pm PDT. We hope you will stop by and take a peek at her eBay auction! Just click on her picture above to go visit!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas here at Village Gift Shoppe! The tahoe trees are lit with twinkling lights and all the Christmas trimmings have been placed throughout the shoppe to create the most peaceful holiday atmosphere.
We hope you will all join us on the dates above to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary here at Village Gift Shoppe. It's hard to believe that it was 10 years ago on November 9, 1999 that we opened our door. Much has happened along the way & many consignment crafters have come and gone throughout the years. A few have passed on and we miss them dearly.
We've given the shoppe a new look and feel and we hope you will stop by to say hello, sign up for door prizes and have some punch, coffee and cookies. We'll also be letting all of our guests sign up for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to help celebrate this special anniversary. The drawing will be held on Monday Nov. 9th.
Hope & Lori
