Ring (or necklace, or charm) it in

Did you know that New Year's Eve celebrations take unique forms throughout the world?
Below, a few examples -- and the inspirations they provide (source: International Business Times):

Russia: Write a wish for the upcoming year on a piece of paper, then burn the paper and place the ashes in a glass of champagne. Drink champagne as the clock strikes midnight, and the wish will come true.

People's Pottery twist: Why not toast the new year (minus the ashes, perhaps) with an elegant champagne glass from our collection?

Peru: Wear new clothes to bring good fortune.
People's Pottery twist: Slip a new Mi Moneda coin pendant over your outfit tomorrow night.

Ireland: New Year's Day, aka "The Day of the Buttered Bread," involves banging loaves of bread on doors and walls to chase out bad luck and invite good spirits.

People's Pottery twist: Spare the bread until it's served and sliced on a gorgeous Romero Britto platter!

Spain: Eating 12 grapes just before the clock chimes midnight will bring good fortune each month of the upcoming year.

People's Pottery twist: The best way to enjoy grapes tomorrow night are fermented, in a glass. We present an irresistible way to "fetch" your wine!

Happy New Year! We can't wait to see you in 2015!

Even your littlest, four-legged friends...and the people who love them. 

Check out these super-cute home decor accents -- can't you just picture the smiles they will bring?

Doggone easy!

Can you keep a secret?

Secret #1:

As much as we love Thanksgiving, we're crazy about our Black Friday shopping specials that make for wonderful holiday gifts. This weekend, buy three Chrysalis bangles and get one free! Each tag carries a special meaning that will attract positive energy into your life. Stack these "good luck" bracelets to embrace your hopes and dreams - four is even better than three!

 Secret #2:

Pandora's Secret Charm. It's so secret, we can't even reveal the name! Here's the scoop: it's unveiled on Friday, and we've ordered fewer than 100 to sell. When they're gone, they're gone! Pre-order to make sure you don't miss out: 585.271.2740.

Secret #3:

Some of us are sneaking out of the store next Thursday...but only because we love a good fashion show for a good cause! We're thrilled to attend the annual Pluta Cancer Center Fashion Show with TwirlyGirl dresses, the easy-care easy-wear line sold exclusively at People's Pottery. Ten little girls who are the daughters or granddaughters of Pluta patients will rock the runway in their TwirlyGirls!

Have we got secrets! But It's no secret that we're thankful to you, our customers, this holiday season! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. See you on Friday!

Merry Everything!

Let's talk turkey.

Actually, let's talk shopping. Trust us, it's all connected.

You've got too much on your plate to run around, hunt down spots, hike through miles of parking lot into Big Box craziness and wait in vain for a harried salesperson to help you find the right size as snow piles onto your car. Gift wrap is one of those things you'd rather leave to someone else. And forget about braving post office lines to ship  -- you'll practically miss the rest of 2014.

Wouldn't you rather spend that time with loved ones, enjoying meals and making memories? 'Tis the season for togetherness, more than anything else.

For the perfect gift with the personal touch, visit People's Pottery in Rochester or online. We are an island of calm in the craziness, and we will pinpoint the ideal find for everyone on your list. Begin sweet new traditions with our beautiful Hanukkah menorahs and Kissing Krystals Christmas ornaments by Ganz. Delight the hostess with a set of candles or a holiday plate. Make your loved ones smile all year long.

For women and girls who've been very, very good, you've got to check out Pandora's holiday charms and our Story and Ti Sento Milano lines; as well as new lines Bon Bons Bijoux, Killian, Lenny & Eva and (for crafty types) Bead Bottle.

Cross the wrapping and Post Office off your list, because we ship around the world and offer beautiful complimentary boxing.

Did you find the perfect gift at our store? Let us know! Share the merriment on our Facebook page, and follow us on Pinterest!

Happy Hunting!

Good Tidings We Bring

Giving back, reaching out, and making a difference -- it's what matters most this holiday season. Looking good goes hand in hand with doing good.

Right now at People's Pottery, we've got two smashing ways to support worthy causes.

The first: a Chrysalis bracelet engraved with the Pluta Cancer Center logo and the word "Hope" on the reverse, exclusively ours. All of the $40 price goes directly to Pluta, making these "bracelets with spiritual energy" even stronger on the good vibes -- and good tidings. 

The second: Chavez for Charity Kids, a collection of colorful bracelets created to raise money for some of today's most important youth charities.  Each color represents a different organization in need, from the Starfish Foundation to Stomp Out Bullying. What a wonderful way to teach kids about supporting worthy causes with a visible, wearable, colorful and beautiful emblem!

If we haven't seen you in a while -- stop in! With our hot new lines and popular classics at every price point, you'll be glad you did. The perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list is waiting here, so come get a jump start on your shopping and discover the trends before anyone else. Remember: we ship around the world.

Orange is the New Pink

We all know what happens this October 31, right?

It's the last day of a Pandora promotion that's too good to pass up: Buy any two rings, get the third ring free.

This month is the ideal time to stop in, see us, and discover what's new at your favorite store in Rochester and Sarasota for all things Pandora! New for October: the Pink Birthday Bloom ring, featuring a gorgeous pink opal, is the perfect gift for those celebrating a birthday.

And because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this ring is also an elegant and meaningful emblem of friendship, support and strength for women everywhere.

Beautiful gemstones, precious metals and fabulous design make Pandora rings special. And you can stack them on your finger for a fashion statement. We'll show you how.

While we always look forward to seeing you, don't hesitate to call and have us ship your order to you -- or anywhere in the world.

And please follow us on Pinterest for lots of holiday gift inspiration! The perfect hostess gift, holiday gift, wedding gift...it's all here.
