2012 – Creches

The 2012 Holiday Exhibit was the private collection of more than 170 nativity sets/crèches from countries such as Mexico, Russia, Norway, Kenya, Ireland, Italy, and many more. The collection included sets made of paper mache, crystal, silver, Israeli olive wood, tapestry, china, and even lace. Special thanks to Blanca Cinco for sharing these treasures with the pubic.
