At the Gypsy Farm Market, we’re treating it like a holiday and Scott’s Airstream of miniatures is worth celebrating!

Scott Hildebrandt’s love of miniatures goes way back to his childhood when he used to spend hours and hours with his Grandfather who was a model train enthusiast. Affectionately named “Mr. Christmas,” Scott has combined his passion for miniatures with his passion for the holidays. (You should see his elaborate holiday light display!!) Mr. Christmas creates miniature vignettes using vintage glass i.e. cake platters, martini shakers, syrup dispensers, salt and pepper shakers, teacups, saucers, jars, and other glass and ceramics. Each scene is one-of-a-kind and usually includes antique Putz houses, bottle brush trees, and a small animal of some sort. (Mr. Christmas encourages everyone who owns one of his pieces to feed the animals, so they don’t get hungry and run away. :) Some scenes are lit using small LED lights and depending on the season, you will also find snow, moss, mushrooms, and other small details.

Although he specializes in holiday scenes, Mr. Christmas has several items to adorn your home, year-round. Come visit Mr. Christmas and his “partner in crime,” Fern and Sprout at the Gypsy Farm Market! You will find them both in one of Scott’s other passions – his vintage Airstream trailer.
