From Madonna's decision to portray herself on Russian nesting dolls to the "Sights and Sounds of Russia" exhibit at the Troy Community Center in Michigan, Americans seem to be smitten with all things Old World this holiday. As the popularity of Russian nesting dolls and Russian amber jewelry continue to rise, The Russian Store (http://www.TheRussianStore.com) is restocking its virtual shelves just in time for the holidays in order to provide shoppers with authentic Russian imports including specialty hand painted, mouth blown, Christmas glass ornaments.

Since the fall of the former Soviet Union in 1988, the Russian population in the United States has grown dramatically. With nearly 350,000 Russian immigrants in the U.S., as of 2000 (according to the U.S. Census Bureau), there is also a longing for traditional Christmas decorations and gifts from their homeland.

Irene Pearson is Co-Owner of The Russian Store. She (along with her husband, Gary) is Russian-born, but changed her name upon becoming a U.S. citizen. Pearson says, "The Russian Store is loved by those who came from the Old World and are looking to recapture their pasts as well as our American friends who appreciate the quality and beauty of Russian crafts and jewelry." Pearson continues, "Russian nesting dolls and Russian amber jewelry are always extremely popular with both groups and give you lots of choices when it comes to those 'hard to buy for' people on your gift-giving list."

The Russian Store carries a large selection of authentic, Christmas glass ornaments imported directly from the former Soviet Union. Mouth blown and hand silvered, these ornately decorated balls, bells, eggs, and nesting dolls are excellent examples of superior craftsmanship and artistic wonder. Hand carved and polished stones set in sterling silver make for breathtaking pure Russian amber jewelry pieces any woman would love to have.

Other specialties found at The Russian Store include hand painted, mother of pearl brooches; colorful wooden Russian eggs (Pisanki); hand carved Santas; delightful miniature glass figurines; and traditional Russian fur and military hats.

Not reproductions, all items are authentic and imported directly from Russia.
