New Year’s Eve is here and we’re so excited to ring in 2022! The Camp Hollow team couldn’t be more proud of the year we’ve had, or more excited about the future to come. In 2021, we were fully devoted to our mission to showcase the beauty and magic of nature through one-of-a-kind, artisan-made pieces that spark childlike wonder and joy. We embraced the spirit of adventure and discovery that inspired us to build Camp Hollow in the first place, and allowed ourselves the creative freedom to design all kinds of new products featuring creatures from every corner of the earth and beyond. In the new year, expect more stylish and eclectic jewelry pieces, figurines, and homewares guaranteed to make you and yours smile wide. More than anything, we’re proud of our ever-growing network of artists, creators, patrons, and friends, and are so thankful for the sense of community we’ve fostered.
The Camp Hollow team wishes you all the best and brightest New Year’s Eve, and a safe, exciting, and fruitful 2022. Keep reading for some of our favorite moments of 2021, and be sure to follow us on social media for a front row seat of all the wonders to come.
We realized a lot of goals in 2021 by expanding our offerings to include new kinds of jewelry pieces, home décor items, and figurines. We brought some of Camp Hollow’s favorite porcelain creatures down in size to make the cutest stud earrings, and the most *charming* charms to swing from our gold toggle bracelets.
Over the summer, we had so much fun giving our social media audience a glimpse behind the Camp Hollow curtain through our first customer-suggested design contest. Over the course of five days, several rounds, and thousands-- we mean thousands!-- of votes, one lucky design reigned supreme, and the Raccoon Necklace was born. There were so many worthy runners-up that we couldn’t resist transforming a few more of our contest designs to go along with the winner.
Later in the season, we took inspiration from the golden glow of the summer sunset and the white-hot temperatures of our kiln, and debuted the beginnings of a limited edition line of necklaces and cake toppers to join the Camp Hollow family in a blaze of shimmering grandeur.
By the fall, we got to work on our new collection of Animal Head Wall Mounts, and felt so excited and humbled to bring a taste of our signature wild style into your homes.
We were influenced by the mysterious and magical vibes of the spooky season, and as fall stretched on we introduced some interesting characters to the Camp Hollow line-up, adding to our growing selection of fantasy-inspired pieces.
Some of the designs we brought to life this year were met with so much love from our customers and supporters, and were purchased with frenzied excitement until they inevitably sold out. Pieces like the Corgi Cake Topper, Axolotl Necklace, and our revamped World’s Smallest Dinosaurs pleased the masses in a way we didn’t expect but fully appreciated.
As always, all Camp Hollow pieces arrived to their new homes magically fast, in packaging fit for a fairytale. This year we introduced new packaging to remind you that every Camp Hollow order is a treasure waiting to be discovered.
Camp Hollow will carry along all of the lessons, inspirations, and memories from this past year as we start another fascinating chapter of our story in 2022. We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
Happy New Year!
