BLOOMINGDALES EXCLUSIVE NEW YORK APPLE - LITTLE BROWN BAG TAG


It looks just like the New York apple in small size, but there is a big difference!

Instead of the metal NY tag on the New York apple, each Bloomingdale's exclusive apple has a metal tag featuring the iconic "Little Brown Bag". The Bloomingdale's apple has its own Swarovski code number which is 5370853.

More Chinese Exclusives

We have just discovered 2 new ornaments which are available exclusively in the Greater China area. They are identical to the Christmas ornaments available elsewhere in both gold and clear versions, but the Chinese ones are available in Aurora Borealis (AB) crystal. Shame they are not more widely available as they look great in AB crystal!

Happy 8th Birthday to The Crystal Lodge!

Happy Birthday to The Crystal Lodge. 8 years old on 1st September 2016!

The original companies that were combined with the Crystal Lodge are, of course, alot older, having begun in the mid to late 1990s, but in this new format and with the Lodge name, its been 8 years. It really doesn't seem possible!

Many thanks for your continued support and custom. It wouldn't be the same, or indeed, possible without you!
