Harbor Sweets, a woman owned business is located in historic Salem, Massachusetts has been producing the finest handmade chocolates since 1973. They pride themselves on working tirelessly to ensure the best quality product available.
Here’s what their catalog says about the Advent Calendar I created for them this year. “Sweet Tidings!” The excitement and bustle of the season is captured in this charming Christmas Eve scene from Harbor Sweets’ friend and local Salem artist Sheila Farren Billings. Create holiday memories and a tradition your family will want to continue for years to come when you count down the days to Christmas with Harbor Sweets. A delicious, gold folded treasure behind every door will make waiting for the big day a little easier.
My design for the advent calendar was inspired by the brownstone and brick buildings so popular in Boston and other New England cities and towns. The homes and shops are decorated for Christmas, and if you look closely, you will see mischievous elves sliding on rooftops, peeking out windows, and generally spreading the holiday spirit. The names of the shops have been customized to represent people and products dear to the heart of Harbor Sweets, and the street sign reads Leavitt Street, the address of Harbor Sweets.
