Holiday Mavens

Deliciously Whimsical & Mysterious Holiday Decor for You and Your Home

Holiday Mavens is a consortium of artisans, crafters and collectors who make and curate items so you can create your own beautiful, fantastical holiday inspired environment any day of the year. 

After all, everyday is worth celebrating.

Holiday Mavens' Emporiums

The Sugarplum Emporium and The Crow and Quill Emporium are our shops featured at art, craft and speciality fairs, as well as online and in-person pop-up events. Each emporium is a multi-artist, multi-style department store, if you will, with it's own themes dedicated to specific holidays. 

At The Sugarplum Emporium Christmas and the lighter side of other holidays swirl flurries of enchanting candy colors and traditional charm around you. Indulge yourself in holiday whimsy. 


Inside The Crow & Quill Emporium, dance under the moonlight surrounded by the mystery of Halloween and other special days of darkness that beckon.


Both of our emporiums invite you to delight in items handcrafted in various styles, such as vintage, traditional, primitive, repurposed, retro, gothic, dark and light victoriana, as well as items that defy classification. 

Take a piece of our spirit home with you!

Black Poplar Shop

Wendy Adair, a founding Maven, is a mixed media artist who loves making the unexpected out of the ordinary. She loves painting with encaustics (molten wax & pigment), as well as clay. She is often finding old discarded items and given them new life. As a Halloween, vampire, literature, and ancient Greek Underworld enthusiast, most of her work has a darker tone. Wendy is also a clinical hypnotherapist specializing in exorcism and some of the encaustic works tell the stories of the dead and other entities she has encountered.
