Deb & Co. Debuts New Christmas Collection at Atlanta Gift Show

Deb & Co., the maker of hand-crafted polymer clay ornaments and gifts, will debut three new Christmas Collections in Atlanta: Angelina Angel, The Elves of Whimsington and Petey Penguin. In keeping with Deb & Co.’s style, each ornament features a design that can be personalized with a name and year, but has a completed look without personalization.

Feeling inspired late one night, designer Debi Allison created Angelina Angel with a story in mind. “Because so many girls and boys play too many video games and watch too much TV, God sent Angelina Angel to Earth to teach children to play outside and have fun without technology,” said Allison. The collection debuts with three angel ornaments, in blonde, brunette and red hairstyles.

For the new Elves of Whimsington collection, Allison revamped one of her popular designs from the 80s, giving the elves a fresh new look. “Elves are just starting to make a comeback, and I think they will grow in popularity in the next few years,” says Allison. Dubbed “Whaldo,” “Whizzy,” “Whizzo,” “Wham,” “Winston,” “Whazzup” and “Wheez,” these 10 new elves take on whimsical poses.

Within the collection, Allison also designed a series of family ornaments with single parents and grandparents. A single elf, Whaldo, holds between two and five stockings, each of which can be customized with a name. “At Deb & Co., we realize that families come in all shapes and sizes,” says Allison. “We pride ourselves in recognizing this, and strive to make truly ‘family’ ornaments by offering products that fit today’s family.”

Another popular cold-weather icon inspired Deb & Co.’s third new collection – the penguin. A merry Petey Penguin strikes 10 different poses for this collection of Christmas ornaments. He is joined by lady penguin Polly and penguin tots, to create a number of ornaments for families and newlyweds. The collection also includes one photo holder and two tropical penguins in hula and surf gear.

These three collections, in addition to many more introductions, can be seen at the Deb & Co. booth at the Atlanta Gift Show, located in building 3, floor 1, booth # 242.
