Feliz Navidad Sedona (known locally as "The Christmas Store"), located in Tlaquepaque arts and crafts village, specializes in handmade Christmas decorations from all over the world. Inspired by the beautiful desert surroundings here in Arizona we carry a large selection of ornaments made by our own southwest artisans. These include local residents, internationally acclaimed painters and sculptors, snowbirds and a variety of other Arizona folk. From adorable miniature leather moccasins, lovingly hand stitched by New Mexico's Roylene Hollis, to beautiful snowy saguaro cacti, we have the perfect souvenir to help you remember and celebrate your time here for years to come.
For collectors, we carry a variety of traditional German wood creations from the Erzgebirge region. These include ornaments, smokers, candleholders, angel orchestras, figurines, pyramids, and of course, nutcrackers. We are an authorized Christian Ulbricht retailer, and periodically have nutcracker signings with the artist. We also carry German blown glass from the Inge-glas and Christborn companies who still use many of the original molds from over one hundred years ago, as well as blown glass from Poland and the Czech Republic.
We carry nativity sets from around the world, including hand carved Russian pieces, carved olive wood from the holy land, and Venezuelan, Bolivian, Chilean, and Peruvian ceramic sets. Come and find something unusual for the collector who has everything or something more traditional the couple just starting out! The modern southwest nativity by Peggy Klapheke of Tucson is a favorite among all our visitors.
For a truly unique find, try Hal Linsley's hand blown glass ornaments from Oregon, or a possible dreams Santa captured in a frozen moment on the back of a bucking bronco! Jack Dauben's unique combination of Western, Hopi, and Norse mythology, gracefully rendered in cottonwood, or RC Ramey's fanciful vision of Santa in the tradition of the pueblo storyteller.
St. Andrew's Abbey Ceramics makes an ornament or plaque to celebrate every occasion. Benedictine monks at a California abbey have crafted these beautiful and durable renditions of saints and angels for nearly forty years. Each is twice fired and glazed for use indoors or out. We are the largest retailer outside the church and offer all of the pieces they make.
