Nana’s Holiday House is open until December 23 at 175 1st Street (formerly Mr. Believable’s & The Rumor Mill). Now a Friday Harbor tradition in its 6th year, Nana’s House provides a place for Kids, 18 and under, to do their Christmas shopping at the affordable price of $1 to $10. All of the items are new or hand crafted. Kids can find special gifts for their families, teachers and friends, as well as getting their gifts wrapped. A “parent’s lounge” is available for parents to munch on baked goods while their kids shop for secret gifts and have their gifts wrapped.
Jeanine Earnhart, her daughter Laura Earnhart Holden and friend Debbie Cutting opened for the first time in 2013, and through the generous donations of items and retail space, have been open in various spots around town every year since.
Items are bought and made all year so there are plenty of lovely items for everyone on the list, and donations are gladly accepted up until the last day.
All the proceeds from Nana’s House go back to the community. Scholarships, school supplies, swimming lessons, food and gas cards to the family resource center and domestic violence, electric bills paid and help for island families going through tough times are just a few of the recipients of Nana’s House profits.
Nana’s house is open from the December 1 through the December 23. Hours are 3 to 5 p.m. on school days and 11-5 on Saturday and Sunday.
The last day of Nana’s House, Decenber 23 is open to the whole family. Even SANTA shops for stocking stuffers at Nana’s House.
