Being a descendant of two Mayflower passengers, Thanksgiving is always an important day at our house. I began hearing from friends weeks ago that Christmas items were already in the stores. Halloween of course gets lots of "press", and lots of floor space in the retail stores. Have you ever thought about the fact that retail-wize we go straight from Halloween to Christmas? Unless Christmas came first to begin with? We at Alexis Antiques never forget Thanksgiving and hope you won't either. If you click this post title you will see a spectacular Pearlware plate which would be smashing as a decoration for the home this time of year, OR as a serving piece for some of your Thanksgiving victuals. More wonderful Thanksgiving merchandise will appear if one CLICKS HERE, and HERE is a nice print from a 1917 issue of Ladies Home Journal magazine which is colorful and a very traditional look at our vision of that first Thanksgiving. Let us know if we can help you with any aspect of your browsing or purchasing process. Many of our items are by Wedgwood, but you will see some by others - and there is even a beer ad to be found with a great Mayflower theme! Remember water was bad in those days, beer was healthier and the pilgrims took LOTS of it on their journey so it's appropriate for the beer barons to use beer as a theme for advertising at this time of year!
May your blessings be many and your thanks be for much good in your lives.
