Christmastree Shops and & That! Stores

Christmas Tree Shops operates over 70 locations, including a few named “& That.”  The stores are mostly in the northeast or southeast including 20 states.  They have a broad selection of home decor and entertaining items, at amazingly low prices.  Most items are sold individually.  They no longer sell on their website as they’re concentrating on sharing new ideas instead.  We like them so much that we’ are still including them in this section.  They’re definitely worth a visit, however you do it.

The mug with dogs enjoying fall leaves above holds 32 oz.  The cup in the center is part of the Harvest Pumpkin collection.  The wine glass goes very nicely with that collection too.  Find these and other fall drinkware in the stores or online at CTS DRINK.



Jodistuff is Jodi Granovsky’s Etsy store.  It’s a very personal place.  She loves glasses, wine and music, and is happiest when she is painting wine glasses listening to music.

As you can see, Jodi is very fond of fall leaves, her favorites being oak, maple and a combination of fall leaves.  The top row features stemless wine glasses (they are sold in a set of 4 and hold about 15 oz.) and a package that includes two cognac glasses and a carafe.  The middle row shows two of her fall martini glasses; both are sold in sets of 2.  The third row includes wine glasses (sold in sets of 2) and another carafe.  The bottom row shows a set of wine glasses (sold in sets of 4) and a margarita glass with fall leaves.  All are hand painted, so even in sets, no two are exactly alike.  Jodi is happy to personalize the glasses at no extra charge.  Orders typically ship in 1-2 weeks from her Indiana studio.  For these and more seasonal hand painted glasses, see JODI DRINK.
