West Seattle holidays: Christmas trees! & Holidays page updates

(Photo courtesy West Seattle Nursery)
West Seattle’s first Christmas trees of the season have arrived. West Seattle Nursery received its first shipment on Sundays – Noble Firs – and kindly gave us permission to use a photo. Christmas-tree availability is part of what we’re updating again this year on the WSB West Seattle Holidays page – who’s got them, where and when. (WSN’s Marcia Bruno tells us that the “natural nobles” arrive sometime today, and also that their tree prices will be lower this year, since they got a better deal from suppliers. We also just got word of a new tree lot in progress, heading out to check on that!) The Holidays page is updated multiple times daily with the newest holiday information. Right now, you’ll find Thanksgiving info at the top, including Thursday’s free dinners and workouts, supermarket hours, and (a WSB tradition) where to find coffee on the holiday.

Thanks very much to everyone who has already sent holiday event listings and other holiday-related info, and we renew the request for YOU to send anything and everything that might be relevant to the Holidays page – bazaars, sales, concerts, parties open to the public, Santa photos, Christmas ships, Hometown Holidays, gift-wrapping events, businesses’ holiday hours (including restaurants/coffee shops open Thanksgiving, Christmas, and/or New Year’s Day), and places/people that could use YOUR help this holiday season (from donation drives to giving trees to ongoing nonprofit wishlists). E-mail is our favorite way to get info (editor@westseattleblog.com) but we have other options listed here if that’s more convenient for you. Thanks and happy holidays!

    Any word on where WSN’s trees come from?

    Hi, I am the owner of the new tree lot located in the old Charlestown Cafe north parking lot. The business name is Son-in-Law Tree Farm. My wife’s father is a farmer in Silverton, Oregon. We will have Noble Firs ranging in size from 3-4′ up to 9-10′. I hand selected the trees last week and they will arrive on Wednesday. We will open on Friday the 25th. Hours will be Mon-Thurs Noonish until 8ish, Friday Noon until 10ish and Sat-Sun 9 until 10. In addition to trees, we will have wreaths made locally in georgetown.

    We have also teamed up with a local glass blower, Welch’s Glass, who has created a limited edition, signed and number hand blown ornaments.

    I am proud to also announce that we will be donating a percentage of our proceeds to the White Center Food Bank. There will be a food barrel for donations and I will have reciepts available for those who wish to make an additional cash donation.

    Please come support a 20 year West Seattle resident and local independent business.

    Glad to hear from you. I was planning to drop by to find out more about your operation, after neighbors let us know about the sighting :) – Tracy
