2010 Seattle Ornament: Fremont Troll

By Athima Chansanchai · May 26th, 2010 · 2 Comments

For all you Christmas ornament collectors – I rarely have a tree, so that’s not me – here is one inspired by one of our neighborhood’s most famous landmarks: The Fremont Troll.

Seattle Ornament

The 2010 Seattle Ornament, with permission from the artists, will be available first at the Fremont Fair, June 19-20. The company is also donating 5 percent of all the 2010 ornaments sold to Solid Ground.

Like previous Seattle Ornaments, it also comes with a story. This one tells the history of the troll and a box. The ornaments are 24-karat gold-plated, limited edition and hand numbered and will sell for $32.80 (including tax).

Betty Woods Gimarelli has designed and produced the Seattle Ornamentâ„¢ since 1994.

Other Emerald City landmarks that have been a Seattle Ornament in the past include: Pike Place Market, the Alki Lighthouse, Benaroya Hall, Safeco Field, Qwest Field, Denny Hall and last year, the Seattle Central Library.

I guess it’s possible to have a whole tree filled with Seattle icons. Again, not for me, but to each, his/her own.
