The Place for Holiday Shopping

The renovation of the Verna House has been postponed by the County until January. This was good news for us as January is a much slower time, and this gives us plenty of time to help you with your holiday needs! We have so many wonderful gifts to offer this year that it will be easy to find a special gift for anyone on your list.

As always we have lots of children's items. Don't limit yourself to shopping at a mall where every toy looks the same. Instead, visit the SOHO Museum Shop where we have a wide variety of great toys, both educational and fun! Just in time for Christmas we have a new line of the metal collectible robots from Schylling. Be sure to get one early; last year's models sold out quickly.

Add a vintage touch to your tree with one of the extra special tree ornaments available at the shop. We carry a line of replica turn-of-the-century Santas, even one of St. Nicholas riding in a delicate glass hot air balloon. Please remember we order in small quantities, so it's first-come, first-served.

For the gourmand on your list, we have a large selection of cookbooks, just a few are highlighted in the catalog pages this issue. A delicious meal is not complete without the right drink. To complement the chef's talents in the kitchen, you might consider giving a classic liquor decanter, and sterling wine openers, or hand-blown Venetian glass tumblers.

For stocking stuffers nothing beats Dover Books. Starting at $1.50, give the gift of Jane Austin, Mark Twain, or Frank L. Baum - we have the entire Oz series. Our shop is stocked with many, many titles in this affordable and hard-to-find Dover series. And speaking of stockings, we carry a couple designs that resemble 1880's patchwork crazy quilts.

Jewelry is always a favorite gift for a lady, and we have lovely women's jewelry: Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Arts and Crafts designs. If you are looking for a truly unique piece, be sure to take a look at our Spanish Colonial jewelry. This hard to come by style is available in only a few limited pieces. If jewelry is not on your shopping list, one of our exquisite Art Deco perfume bottles would make a lovely and appreciated gift. And for the man who enjoys a real shave, we carry shaving mugs, boar bristle brushes, and two types of shaving soaps.

If you love to give the gift of books, you don't have to go far to find beautiful books, from the classics to the newest old house titles. We have an impressive selection of book titles. Journals make an extra special gift, something that the recipient can think of you all year long while they write their thoughts and dreams down. We have leather journals, garden journals, travel journals and more, along with some of the finest inks in the world.

To make the holidays easier, give us your list and let us do the shopping for you while you relax and enjoy the season. Let us put a themed gift package together for you perhaps or find that one perfect book.

If you are looking for a gift that is unique and reflects the past, you are sure to find it and so much more at the SOHO Museum Shop. Give to Historic Preservation. It's easy, shop SOHO.
