“Dear PoP,

Great Holiday Trees for a Great Cause — On December 4 and 5, 2010, from 10- 4, the Bancroft Elementary School PTA will hold its annual holiday tree sale. We have trees of every size and for every budget, as well as wreaths, roping, stands and craft activities for the kids. So come by, buy a tree (with all proceeds going to the PTA), get some hot chocolate and visit our brand new playground!! Bancroft is located at the corner of 18th Street and Newton in Mt. Pleasant”

And in case you missed it we spoke about other spots around town to buy Christmas trees right before Thanksgiving.

Jill Hinckley’s annual holiday show & sale

1707 Kalorama Road NW

One day only! Sunday • December 5 • 12–5pm

Searching for a special gift? Then this is the time and the place. For just one day, Jill Hinckley’s beautiful pots escape the confines of our showroom and storage cupboards and transform the entire studio into a gallery. It’s a truly festive occasion.

In the past few of months, Jill has worked primarily in porcelain, but she also has many stoneware and raku pieces available. Come see the lovely variety of these one-of-a-kind pieces — perfect for holiday gifts, hostess favors, wedding, house-warming or teacher presents. And, of course, each is meant to be used and enjoyed. Check our website for more details about the show:
