For the fifth year, Eerdmans Holiday Bazaar will be offering a discriminating selection of holiday gifts for every good adult on your list. Opened online now and in person at Eerdmans chic Greenwich Village gallery (be sure to watch the Quintessence video visit here) on November 30, Emily and her elves have done the legwork for you, sourcing from their cadre of talented artisans, designers and dealers.
Take a peek at a few top picks. Thomas Eckardt of Hadley Antiques’ always sources select silver offerings that are stylish infused with wit and whimsy. Below a silver plated English Squirrel Nut Dish. “To me they represent abundance and entertaining and the very best of the holidays!” How did we ever live without one?!
Artist Susan Schneider is perhaps best known for her paper marbling. Her company Shandell’s has been offering custom paper lampshades for more than 20 years. She has since branched out into leather and fabric, creating home goods (my Christmas tree topper – a marbleized star – is from Susan) and wearable art. At the holiday bazaar, you’ll find her Splatter Tote Bag, perfect as a chic tote for everything from a trip to the market or beach, a day in the city or even to bring on the plane.
You may remember artist Tug Rice’s charming illustrations gracing the entry of Eerdmans in our video visit, his nostalgic artistry recalling “the wit and sophistication of a more glamorous New York while remaining decidedly in the now.” His new character, Spotty Dog examining a whimsical nutcracker are depicted on this fine bone china ornament for British emporium Halcyon Days.
