If you’re a fan of WAG, then you know we’re fans of Eleish Van Breems Home, the Scandanavian-flavored furniture, home goods and gift store in Westport. Every year, the store offers something we just fall in love with. This year, we’re mooning over its tomtes, the adorable forest gnomes with their pointy hats and long, fluffy beards all but obscuring their piercing eyes and pointy noses. We’ve tried to resist. We can’t.
Tomtes – or versions of them – are a big trend this season as stores try to get a jump on the holidays. Eleish Van Breems’ tomtes are handcrafted by Swedish artisans using traditional felted pure wools and lamb’s fur. They retail for $165 each.
Ah, if only we could have a forest of these forest gnomes.
