This year we’ve added some great new ornaments from Haiti, including lively and colorful papier-mâché handcrafted and hand painted in the papier-mâché capital of the country, Jacmel. (I don’t think it’s the official name of the city, but it has a nice ring to it.)
We’ve carried great, well loved recycled paper ornaments from Manila, the Philippines, from a women’s collective in the past and the tradition carries on to Holidays 2012. As usual, they come in two sizes, and while most consist of paper “beads,” we’re partial to the paper “twine” made from recycled magazines.
Of course, Three Stone Steps isn’t the only game in town for buying these recycled Christmas and Hanukkah goods. If you’re looking for one of our fine retail partners, perhaps near you, please let us know where you are and we’ll give you some options. Or, if you’re in the Baltimore-Washington area, come see us live. You can find our schedule of events here.
