Decorate a Room in Campbell's Ainsley House for the Holidays!

Posted on September 11th, 2014 by DCBA

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the popular "Holidays at the Ainsley House." Each year, businesses and organizations decorate rooms in Campbell's 1925 Ainsley House around a particular theme.

This year, you are invited to help us celebrate the holidays by decorating an Ainsley House room in a theme inspired by the 1920s and 30s. Hurry, only three rooms remain available: the guest bedroom and dressing room, Mrs. Ainsley's dressing room and bathroom, and the half-bath in the foyer.

There is no cost to participate. The museum provides a pre-lit tree for each room (minus the half-bath), and in-room signage to recognize each business/organization who decorated. Each business/organization also gets a half-page ad in the holiday program and exposure through the Museum's media outreach.

Please contact Anna Rosenbluth at annar@cityofcampbell.com for decorating guidelines and more information.

A Brilliant Boutique Collaboration

Posted on June 25th, 2014 by DCBA

When It's A Girl Thing, a high end fine jewelry and accessories consignment boutique, suddenly lost their lease, owner Cindy Sanders called on her friend and fellow boutique owner Deb Rohzen, purveyor of unique new apparel and adornments at Simply Smashing! in Downtown Campbell. The result: It's A Girl Thing has popped up at Simply Smashing! It's the best of both worlds: high end designer bags and baubles, and Simply Smashing style all under one roof.
