Victoria’s... Nutcrackers Are On Display

Victoria's... a Restaurant Nutcrackers Are On Display
By: D. Bryant

Victoria's Restaurant has over 200 Christmas nutcrackers currently on display. The collection is owned by Doug and Doris Bryant. The couple own and operate Victoria's…a restaurant…on a daily basis. Doris has been collecting the wooden figures for over 37 years. Doug suggested several years ago how festive it would be to place a nutcracker on every table in the restaurant. "Oh I must go shopping for nutcrackers for everyone to enjoy!" replied Doris. What a wonderful suggestion for a collector.
Victoria's customers have asked Doris to adopt some of their German made nutcrackers. Their "downsizing" has proved to be very rewarding. The stories she has learned are heartwarming. During the past year Williamsburg Estate Services has donated unwanted misfits and treasures to the collection. Doris has housed, loved, shared and restored many to like new condition.
The restaurant is now sponsoring their Third Annual Nutcracker Give Away. The wonderful nutcrackers will be raffled off for $1.00 per entry. Purchase as many raffle entries as you please! All proceeds will fully benefit the Heritage Humane Society located on Waller Mill Road. There will be two winners drawn. The drawing(s) will be on Wednesday December the 21st 2016
Victoria's is located in the Williamsburg Crossing Shopping Center. Drop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner and see "The Nuts!"
