Nicol Sayre will be signing her original doll creations at American Harvest on Saturday, September 11th from 10am to 1pm.  As you already know quantities of Nicol’s dolls are extremely limited, so arrive early for the best selection.  She will be featuring Autumn and Halloween dolls.  In addition, we will be selling her licensed designs for ESC.  These wonderful Halloween designs are being manufactured for Nicol by ESC.  The Halloween items include Caged Witches (that is a witch doll where the lower body is wood slats), paper mache witch shoes, a witch on a crow and many other designs.  Because we are Nicol’s Home Store, she will also sign the licensed products that we sell that day only.  We are very fortunate to have Nicol at our store….Nicol does not sign these items at any other store but American Harvest!

If you are unable to attend her signing at American Harvest, you may call the store at 925-485-1577 during the signing and purchase her dolls and licensed items over the phone, please ask for Sharon.  They will not be available online through our website shopping cart until after September 11th.  Yes, if you purchase over the phone, Nicol will sign her delightful creations for you!  But, we really would like to see you in person at American Harvest on September 11th!


The Headless Horseman makes his appearance on Saturday August 21st, as American Harvest presents Sleepy Hollow, Halloween event.  Our postcard was designed by Ingrid Pomeroy.

We have been working around the clock to make this event special for all attendees.  April made her magic again this year with major prop building including this large Sleepy Hollow sign patterned after the actual sign at Sleepy Hollow, NY.  Take a guess on how many pairs of recycled work gloves it took to make her haunted tree.

Sharon has created many of the items for this event, including her famous glittered skulls.  Jan pulled out all the stops in creating her vintage inspired Halloween collages.  Susan brought us a wonderful array of her Halloween creations.  Ingrid also made beautiful “floating” clock face necklaces.  And what a nice surprise today, when Laura brought in homemade Halloween cupcakes!  We all needed that blast of sugar!

Glass owls adorn this Halloween feather tree with mushrooms.

Debbee Thibault has created 25 one-of-a-kind Halloween pieces for our store.  These are the most incredible items, my pictures do not do them justice!

What a royal Halloween treat is this beautiful queen!

Nicol Sayre just surprised us with two Sleepy Hollow inspired dolls for our event tomorrow.  These two original dolls are beautifully costumed and meticulously hand painted by Nicol.  Also, Nicol has brought us five of her designs that are being produced by ESC.  These five designs are not in stock yet, but should be here in time for her signing at American Harvest on September 11th.  You can pre-order these creations tomorrow at American Harvest and have Nicol sign them when they arrive.  You can then pick them up at the Sept. 11th signing…we do expect to sell out of these wonderful creations, so be sure to see them at the Sleepy Hollow event.

We hope to see you on August 21st at 10am for the Halloween event of the year….Sleepy Hollow at American Harvest.
