Share Your Christmas Memories with the Stove Princess

No other time of year conjures up romance, magic, and enchantment the way Christmastime does. There may be a chill in the air in most areas of the country, but the holiday warms our hearts and souls. We all have our favorites movies, memories and traditions that are at their best when shared and celebrated.

One customer told us how she first kissed her yet to be husband under a ball of mistletoe that hung in the parlor not far from their baseburner stove. Another customer shared her mother’s favorite gingerbread recipe - she can still smell the baking bread coming from the old cast iron wood burning kitchen range. We heard from a movie buff customer when he caught a glimpse of an antique stove in the movie “Meet Me In St. Louis.”

We invite you to share your special holiday memories and traditions with us. Do you have a photo of a stove in a decorated living room? A tasty fruitcake recipe? Do you remember holiday preparations happening in the kitchen with the old range the heart of the event? We’d love to hear from you, stove enthusiasts, history enthusiasts and holiday enthusiasts, and we’lll post the submissions on our blog before Christmas for all to share and enjoy. Please feel free to contact us by email, snail mail or phone. We’d love to hear from you.

We sometimes daydream about our antique stoves and kitchen ranges, wondering what special times and fond memories that they have witnessed. And we always hope that the stoves in our care will find new homes where they can be a part of new traditions and share again in family celebrations.
