Introducion and Gift Guide for The Patience Brewster Nativity Set
Starting in the 2015 year Patience Brewster Inc. no longer sells to retailers. All her creations are available now at the official website only. First and foremost, all your questions can be answered there.
The Patience Brewster Nativity was introduced in 2009. The Shepard, Lamb and Ewe are new for 2011. For 2012 the Shepardess with little Corgi and Collie were new for the set.
Each grouping is stamped with her style. The Magi figures are long, pointed and have colorful lines. Gold accent and pastel hues punctuate medieval clothes, with mustaches, beards and turned out footwear. Festive and whimsical. The Magi's conveyances, an elephant, horse and camel, have the same playful motif.
Patience Brewster is a children's book writer, illustrator and greeting card maker. She now features a line of journals, notepads, note cards, home decor figures, and books. She has a large line of Christmas ornaments.
All pictures for this page are credited to Patience Brewster and the family run company. Please enjoy the Patience Brewster nativity sets that follow and her line of figurines for creating a whimsical Christmas nativity scene for your home.

Nativity Assortment Set
The set is an easy way to have the whole tableaux. You will see a few changes from past sets, two angels are in this new set. Also included is a table runner to bring the grouping together. You also get the 2012 Shepherdess and 2 dogs. Each year the set gets a little bigger. This set does not include this year's Drummer boy and dog.
Any sets you may find on Amazon, eBay or retailers are past produced sets. Of course, you will be getting her exacting designs and items made with her specs, but keep in mind they are previously bought.
The Nativity Scene Holy Family
The Holy Family is pretty with color throughout. The manger has straw accents and the Mother and Father, their heads covered with lovely drapes, are kneeling beside. The infant is wrapped in white swaddling clothes. The infant can be placed in the parent's outstretched hands.
Ms. Brewster's figures are Made in the Philippines with care to hand painted details.

The Set Is So Charming
This is charming. A very good way to illustrate the playfulness the world can offer. The linear style matches the heights of feelings the season brings. This could be a family treasured keepsake collectible. I would like to see very little birds and a rooster and hen. Not a turkey like my Italian set has. Not true to the time period.
The Homey Cow
Auction for Krinkles and the Nativity Scene
Compare the offerings. I shop ebay and Amazon to get the best price. If you are collecting by individual piece ebay may be your best option.
If you are a very avid collector take note if the model numbers are 08- or 09-. The 08- lead-in number are those products that were produced for Department 56. 09- indicate products from PB new company.
Newly issued musical piping girl with cute kitten. Add it to your Nativity collection.

The Office and Christmas Nativity
Many situations come up at the office if you are a cubicle worker. A coworker's story was humorous. One year she brought in a chocolate nativity scene. Only after a long time did the baby figure get consumed, he stayed there days, forlorn and alone.
Would you eat the chocolate infant?

There is something very special about a Nativity Scene for the simplicity of the message it conveys of peace and goodwill to all. What a delightful selection and clearly very collectable!
