GROSSMUTTERS CHRISTMAS ATTIC
is a small enthusiastic team with large goals.
Barbara and Gary dedicate themselves to maintaining a high level of expertise and trust within the Christmas collecting community. They are able to offer expert assessment and advice from the formation of private collections to the creation of Museum quality Christmas exhibitions and displays. They can photo-archive collections and make evaluation for insurance, estate or dissolution purposes. They are always interested in the purchase of individual antique Christmas items or entire collections.
Barbara and Gary have been collecting Antique Christmas Ornaments, Santa`s and early Christmas Decorations since the early 1990's.
Soon after they began collecting , they both were on the look out for ways to increase their knowledge and share their passion of Christmas collecting.
They discovered a living source, one away from the reference books they were confined to, the Golden Glow of Christmas past collectors club, a club that still today encourages them to delve deeper into subcategories of many Christmas themes.
Gary and Barbara began sharing their collections with each other and soon began selling together on their website in 2003. With Barbara's great eye for Christmas and love of Art and Photography she has been able to put together three successful websites that draw praises from Christmas admirers world wide. Gary watches over the financial requirements and maintains much of the inventory in his store in LaConner, WA. In 20 years of collecting Christmas antiques they were able to grow their knowledge base from many sources and today they are able to give you an answer, advice or guidance into a good direction in collecting. They have been credited in a number of magazine articles and books about Christmas collecting and have been fortunate in working with a world re-nowned Swiss museum, setting their annual Christmas exhibition.
Barbara and Gary can be found selling in the public only at the Golden Glow conventions in summer and at the yearly Weihnachts-Sammlerbörse, Christmas antique Show, every first week in December, in Zurich, Switzerland.
And at the end of every year, right after Christmas, they open up their house and collection to friends, collectors and customers for a day of Christmas enjoyment.
