Ok, so you did the Black Friday thing, the black Saturday thing but you still did not find that one gift that "so-and-so" is just gonna love, right? (he didn't really expect to find something unique in those big box stores, did you?)

So what are you going to do about finding a gift for that creative, hard-to-shop-for person in your life?

Give a KAZA Gift Certificate!

The KAZA Gift Certificate comes in a black box lined in moss (funky, eh?), ready to wrap for Christmas!

**Comes in every "size" you need! 5$,25$,50$...or even 102$**
(I have a good pen and can write any amount in the little box)**

So, stop in at KAZA and grab a KAZA Gift Certificate and make your Holidays less about the running around and more about the "ahhh....look at that fireplace".

And while you are out and about---check out the other shops in Downtown Concord!

Shop Local This Holiday Season, Bella's.
Trust me, it will keep those beautiful smiles on your faces the season through. :o)

Ciao Bella's!

Sleigh Bells Ring....

Are YOU Listening?

Me?!? I have been sitting with my earplugs, refusing to let go of the summer sweetness. But alas, the earplugs must be removed and I must accept....*gulp*...winter.

Every year, y'all hear me whinin' about winter, blah blah blah...I know, I know.
So, what's a girl gotta do?

Create some "In-Your-Face-Winter!", Winter Wonderland windows, of course!

These were actually fun to make. I will not lie, my fingers still hurt from cutting so many snowflakes. Ok, that was a lie --my daughter cut most of them. But the planning was brutal (again...not really). The Snowflake Tree Window was from a dream I had that woke me up at 2:34am and had me scrambling for paper in the dark (For Real!). I love it! It looks like a lace tree, but is actually made with cut paper doilies! Cool, eh?

So much to talk about, Bella(s)! So, grab your hot cocoa and Snuggie and lets sit together and chat a bit.

New products available for Christmas that I think will make you so proud that you shop here (with alot more to come!):

Amy Butler Reversible Headbands! Only 10$ Each

Bacon Chocolate Lollipops (ah-huh, your eyes are not fooling you!) They are actually Vegan! $2.50 each

Vintage Designer Neckties (Versace, Armani, Dior, Valentino, etc) 20$ each!

Cedar Smudges (for the people that like a good smudging) $5 each

Parisian Wallpaper Pegs (set of 6 for 5$!)

A Modern Girls Vintage Sewing Kit (Includes: Vintage thimble, vintage fabric pin cushion, thread, pins, needler, scissors, tape measure & sparkly buttons!) 15$

Sirop D'Erable (Maple Syrup) from Coaticook, Canada! 10$

Some new fabulous jewelry!

And new ornaments made by KAZA!

And another thing!
KAZA was voted as one of Concord's Hidden Gems by Concord Insider!

Isn't that cool? Again, verifying your choice in shops is superb! (hee hee)

On another note, KAZA will be collaborating with Lisa of Fiacre Designs to bring in new elements into KAZA. As you know, product development is incredibly important at KAZA and Lisa (of Fiacre Designs) is a brilliant Designer full of creative ideas & talents. I am thrilled to pieces to start working with her and excited to introduce her lines to you, as well!

So, that should do it for now,kids. I am glad we could take some time together and chat a bit. By the way, a heads up on the Invitation Only Christmas Event at KAZA, coming soon!

Ciao Bella(s)!

Artist Reception For Eli Goodwin!

When: Thursday, 11 November
What time: 4pm-7pm
Where: KAZA!

Everyone who comes in, mentions Eli's photography. He captures moments, that we all wish we could capture. I have been able to get to know Eli a bit while working together and what a nice and incredibly interesting Man. It really has been such a pleasure working with him.

A little message from Eli:

I love finding myself out in Nature and getting lost in it. Time stops: Peace coexists with a certain intensity of awareness. Nature in the broadest sense includes everything: a person, a leaf, a reflection. Anything from dramatic vistas to quite ordinary places may be visually compelling to me. The instant I choose to photograph remains an inspired moment for me---it frames my life for good.

I am intrigued that whatever I encounter will never again appear exactly as I find it. There is always visual magic waiting to be noticed.

I don't "capture" pictures. There is a working relationship between Nature and me---and between me and the camera, once Nature and I agree. A third essential element is the implicit participation of the viewer.

My art is both solitary and communal. At heart, I haven't changed from the little boy who wants to say to a friend, "Hey, look here!"
I want these images to do more--and less than--speak for themselves. I invite you to eavesdrop on my conversation with nature and perhaps, stimulate your own; to explore the essence of the seen, the sense of how it looks "right now".

Thanks, sincerely, for taking a look.
-Eli Goodwin

Isn't he cool? So, come on out to KAZA, Thursday night for some munchies, wine, cider, shopping and to meet the Artist, Eli Goodwin!

Ciao Bella(s)!
