German Pickle - inge glas
We are having our annual Pickle hunting contest on July 21 st to celebrate Christmas in July. Since it is our 40 th Anniversary, we are hiding 40 pickles around the store (this is up from last year’s 25 pickles). This means you have an even better chance of finding one! Come by the store early for the best chances to find a pickle (but even if you come at the end of the day, there will still be a few hidden pickles). One prize per family.

On July 21st, we will be having a book signing with the author and illustrator of A Door County Night Before Christmas. Carol Davis and Jan Rasmussen will be signing books from 11am to 2pm.

We will also be having a Facebook contest starting on July 25 th. Follow our Facebook page for more details as the date gets closer!
Even more Radko ornaments have arrived!
Have you seen all our new Christopher Radko ornaments? This month we added over 40 new styles of Radko ornaments to our trees. That brings this year’s total to over 90 new styles. With such a diverse selection this is the best time of year to pick up your favorites or to start your Christmas shopping early. If you are looking for suggestions, here are some of our favorites A Hero’s Welcome, Holding Up Their End, and Lighthearted Lighthouse.  A Hero’s Welcome features a trio of penguins all dressed in their first-responder attire.  Holding Up Their End shows Santa and his favorite Snowman holding up presents with the date (2018) written on them. Finally, we have the Lighthearted Lighthouse, which features a lighthouse (probably one from Door County) decorated for the holidays. Stop by the store today to see all these beautiful ornaments in person.
Door County Photography
This is the first year we are selling photographs of Door County by David Wilkenson. David is a Wisconsin native who has enjoyed photography since childhood. David’s work includes picturesque views of Door County sunsets, famous sites (e.g. Cana Island, Eagle Tower, Peninsula State Park), and some of our favorite scenic views. These images come matted and are perfect reminders of your wonderful time in Door County. We have some of David’s work up on the website, but we have even more in the store.
Russian Santas
We have received this year’s Handcrafted Russian Santas. We carry a variety of sizes and price points sure to meet your needs. These Santas are all hand-carved and hand painted making them one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork. Because these Santas are hand-crafted, we only have one of each style available (so what you see is what you get). This means that if there is a style you like you should order it today!
Door County's Finest!
Back in May we told you about this year’s new Frykman Santa, Door County’s Finest Santa. Featuring some amazing Door County wine and recognizing Tannenbaum’s beginning in 1978, this Santa is perfect for wine lovers and Door County enthusiasts. All pieces are numbered and signed by David Frykman. We expect these Santas to arrive around the end of July. 
Halloween Broom
We know it is only July and it might be a bit early to talk about Halloween, but we are excited our Halloween Broom is back in stock! This delightful broom has been one of our best sellers for the last couple of years. This life-size broom, is touch-activated, moves around and cackles. If you prefer a sneak attack (or if the cackling scares your young guest), you can put the broom on silent and let it quietly bump into your Halloween guests. Watch the broom in action at our website!
Christmas in the City
This elegant florist becomes quite busy during the holidays in Christmas In The City and this is especially true for Stems and Vines Garden House   With warm light, spills from the multitude of hand-cut window panes. Details include a selection of topiaries and a tiny stack of terra-cotta pots in the snow. Peek through the acrylic topped greenhouse to find bright red poinsettias waiting to be brought home to someone special. This is a limited-edition piece, each one is hand-numbered. To coordinate is A Holiday Surprise , a gentleman keeps his rose bouquet a surprise for one more moment.
Headquarters to Singer Manufacturing Company, the Singer Building is a 47-story office building was the tallest building in the world upon completion in 1908. Designed by Earnest Flagg, it’s a wonderful example of early the Beaux-Arts architectural style, located in Lower Manhattan, New York City, at Liberty and Broadway streets. It was raised in 1968 for new development. Our rendition beautifully portrays the fine architectural details, including the tower cupula, decorative carved stonework, patina copper roof, and elegant doorways featuring clocks set to the iconic 5 to 6. Don’t forget to pick up the coordinating accessory Walking the Beat , featuring two of our City’s policeman are checking out the area. 
Considered one of the best examples of his prairie style architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House was built in the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago and completed in 1910. Cantilevered roof eaves, art-glass windows in long horizontal bands, as well as the coloration of the brick and mortar emphasized the horizontal lines – the chief attribute of prairie style. 
Christmas In The City residents are thrilled that The Dairy Queen as opened right downtown. From the holidays to summer, from spring to winter, everyone loves a stop in for a frozen treat. Garland and poinsettias perfectly compliment the red and white awning over the front door and windows. Building is enhanced with authentic vintage advertising art used for the signage. To accessorize this cool treat is City Streets, Frozen Treats , showing 3 friends stopping for a frozen treat on the way home from school. Date on the wall, 1940, represents the year the 1 st Dairy Queen opened.
The corner grocer, Lundberg Foods , is a welcome convenience to the neighborhood in the City. Fresh produce in the sidewalk bins gives a hint to the variety of goodness available inside. Dairy, fruits, meets, and veggies are restocked daily, so all those Holiday treats and meals can be prepared with ease! Details such as the weighing scale and push broom out front add to the charm. Box set of 4 includes coordinating accessory “Helpful Stock Boy” a sisal tree, and a bag of snow. 
There are four new accessories to coordinate with any of the Christmas in the City houses. The Christmas In the City Village Gate features 2 lit lanterns at the entrance and a door replicating an iron gate designed to complement the architecture of this series. Logo type sign welcomes both residents & visitors to this charming place we know & love as Christmas In The City. Next, we have the City Apple Vendor , what a treat to find fresh produce from a friendly vendor! There is also the 56th Street Station , this subway station is LED lit and feature a door that actually revolves. Finally, we have City News, Evening Edition . This two piece set features a n ewsstand with a variety of publications and a vendor.
Tannenbaum's Reading Corner....
We have seen the return of some of our favorite children’s books this last month. One of our favorite collections is from Cottage Door and features thicker pages making the books sturdier and more suited for young children. Two of our more popular books were Grandma’s Wishes and Grandpa’s Wish List. Both tell about how much grandparents look forward to a new baby coming into the family and all the fun activities grandparents are going to enjoy with the new child. These books make for great presents for young children or a grandparent.
This year, we are introducing a new book call “ Grandma’s Kitchen.” This book tells the story of all the fun grandchildren and their Grandmas have baking cookies together. This sweet book talks about how patience and kisses make cookies great, but how spending time together is the best part of making cookies.
