68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 15 - Nov. 21, 2002 Broadkill Beach sisters offer seasonal craft store through November By Amy Reardon Sisters Barbara Bossert and Ca- role Harbaugh, of Broadkill Beach, have sewn together since they were little girls. Originally from Wilmington, they now live four houses away from each other on North Caroli- na Ave. and have opened a sea- sonal craft store called the Christ- mas Cottage. With the help of Bossert's hus- band Bob, the sisters transformed the Bossert family cottage, which they rent in the summer, into a Christmas craft haven. The women enlisted seven oth- er crafts people, including their sister Sami Campbell who de- signs and makes antique tins, to fill the rooms of the house with paintings, Wood carvings, Santa Clauses, wreaths, flower arrange- ments, and collectible baskets. On weekends, the sisters play Christmas music, offer hot choco- late, coffee, banana bread, and muffins. Bob, who posts scripture verses on the sign in front of the cottage, arranged his plastic letters to ad- vertise the dates of the Cfiristmas Cottage, through Nov. 26. At night and on gloomy No- vember days, the sign shines un- der Bob's spotlight. "We are very happy with how well we've done," said Bossert. "We had a beautiful weekend. The neighbors have been great. They want us to open every year so they don't have to go far from home to Christmas shop." The sisters plan to open on the weekends in October next year and daily from early November to mid-month. "My children come home for Thanksgiving, and they bring their children and dogs, I'll need the cottage for them," said Bossert with a smile. The sisters, however, will take orders for custom sewn and em- broidered Christmas presents un- til Dec. 12. The cottage is open daily from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 404 N. Bayshore Dr., Broadkill Beach.
