Anyhow, for those of you nearby, the second weekend of the Poole Forge- Christmas at the Ironmaster's Event is this weekend (Dec. 11- 5-8 pm, Dec. 12 & 13 1-4 pm). Our display is awaiting your viewing (we're in the "blue room" upstairs) and your votes (if you are so inclined). This is a self-guided, walk-through tour of the historic mansion located off Rt. 23 in Churchtown, PA. Local businesses and organizations have created Christmas displays, including decorated trees throughout the property. Be sure to end your visit with complimentary hot drinks and homemade cookies available in the West Tenant House near the covered bridge.
Here is a picture from last year's display we did, which happened to earn us a 2nd place honor.
I'll post this year's display photos after the event is over. Hint: the display includes lots of pink (and gold/copper) this year as a kick-off to our "Passionately Pink for the Cure" private sale we're hosting this Sat. through next (Dec. 12-19). This special offer is a fundraiser benefitting our registered team with Susan G. Komen. Current guestlist customers as well as 2009 Christmas at the Iron Master's tour-goers were offered a "Pink Pass" outlying the special event in the shop this week. To get your pink pass and to receive the full details, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Join Guestlist" and I will forward the "scoop" your way!!
