The Giant Gingerbread Men of Costco

Walking through Costco this weekend, we saw they still had a few Gingerbread House kits in stock… we posted pics of those before. But, a new addition, where these giant Gingerbread Men. Sorry for the quick snap being a bit blurry, it’s frantic there with so many people and everyone grabbing anything that doesn’t move. These guys aren’t found on the Costco Web site so they may also be limited to which stores they are in. Question, does each kid and parent get their own to work on all day or do we do one per family and have everyone take a part? Either way, they will be a lot of fun at this weekend’s get together.


Etsy, the first place to look for Fun Gingerbread items!

We don’t have much in our Etsy store right now for our Gingerbread Fans… every time we start making fun things we end up sending as gifts. But, that doesn’t mean that there is many other fun items to be found on Etsy for the Gingerbread Fans amongst us. Here is a link to a search on the Etsy site, which results in over 12,000 items!! There are home made food items, fun hats, ornaments, houses, crafts, earrings, cups, towels, you name it!! We can spend days there… well, we do spend days there… so many creative people that enjoy Gingerbread!
