Former California ballerina channels passion for dance to help benefit ballet companies around the United States and Canada.

Nutcracker Ballet Gifts, a western North Carolina-based purveyor of hand-crafted, hand-painted collectible nutcracker figures, ballet gifts and snowglobes that the company designs itself, has expanded its business to offer wholesale as well as retail sales. Although they welcome any company that's interested in reselling their products, their products and expertise are particularly well-suited to ballet companies and schools. Says owner, Esmee Dorf, "Our experience in fund-raising and my ballet background help us to understand and be sensitive to the special needs of ballet companies."

Nutcracker Ballet Gifts offers a variety of ballet-themed items, including a large selection of hand-painted collectible nutcrackers, unique snowglobe designs, ballet and nutcracker jewelry, ornaments, t-shirts, coffee mugs and more. Items can be customized with the name of the individual ballet company or school, which makes great branding for the organization. One particularly popular item is the re-usable shopping bags that say "I support my local ballet." These 15" x 10" x 6" bags are available with either a nutcracker or a ballet toe shoe motif. The wholesale price for the bags is (insert price here) with a suggested retail price of $5.00.

The wholesale division is happy to work with any size company, large or small. The minimum wholesale order is $175, which is approximately 10 to 15 nutcrackers. The company has an easy return policy and the fact that Nutcracker Ballet Gifts is small and family-run means the customer will ever only talk to one of three people who man the warehouse. All items are inspected before they leave the warehouse.

About Nutcracker Ballet Gifts

Nutcracker Ballet Gifts was formed more than 20 years ago, the brainchild of young dancer and "Nutcracker" enthusiast, Esmee Dorf. The company began by selling ballet-themed tee-shirts that her father designed himself.

Today, Nutcracker Ballet Gifts is still family run, but has expanded its product line to include a complete selection of collectible nutcracker figures, ranging from the traditional, red and black soldier-style figures to more whimsical figures, like the disco-style nutcracker with a purple-sequined jacket or the candy-cane nutcracker who holds a giant lolly-pop instead of a spear. Many of the company's nutcracker designs are unique. In addition to nutcrackers, Nutcracker Ballet Gifts sells ballet-themed books, ornaments, jewelry, picture frames, clothing, snowglobes and coffee mugs. According to owner, Esmee Dorf, "We are committed to offering a complete and unique assortment of nutcracker and ballet gifts all in one place."
