Event Ornaments*

These Keepsake ornaments, that provide an imaginative glimpse into the kitchen of the North Pole’s most beloved residents, were created especially for the 2012 in-store signing events. They continue the theme established in 2010 with the release of Santa’s Armoire as that year’s in-store signing ornament. Last year, Mrs. Claus’s Cupboard was created for the KOC 25th Class Reunion event—but those of you who missed it can get a repainted version when you renew your KOC membership for 2012.

Features more than two dozen objects, from freshly baked bread to wooden spoons, all created by Keepsake Artists. Companion piece to last year’s signing ornament, Mrs. Claus's Cupboard.
