The gnomes are here – and they’re ready for Christmas! Decked out in their Buffalo Plaid, these adorable new gnomes can add a bit of whimsy to your home from the mat at your front door, to your tree and hearth, or anywhere else a gnome can roam. Look for gnomes with our garden flags, Sassafras mats, door decor, and more. There might even be a gnome with your name on it!
The legend of the gnomes goes back to the earliest German fairy tales and even Greek and Roman mythology. Their name is derived ffrom the Latin word for earth dweller, and they were often described as “old men who guarded treasure” or “nature spirits that interact with humans in either helpful or mischievous ways.” In Scandinavia, they’re associated with the holidays when Kris Kringle in gnome form visits the homes of good children who leave out a bowl of porridge and are rewarded with gifts.
Now one of the hottest holiday decor trends, we’re pleased to offer a fun selection both in-store Wednesday through Sunday or online anytime.
