All monies raised at this year’s Lompoc Hospital Foundation Holiday Home Tour and Candlelight Tea will contribute towards the purchase of a MRI breast imaging unit for Lompoc Valley Medical Center.
Four homes in Lompoc Valley California will feature on the tour, in addition to a raffle.
The candlelight tea will be held at Ocean’s Seven Café, with food prepared by Michael Despres, who will also prepare the gingerbread house that will be raffled. The first property of the tour is the Hibbits home, with paintings viewable throughout. Antique furniture, crocheted curtains and hand-painted tiles create a warm, cosy home. It is advisable to spend time in the property, to appreciate the original artwork and antiques.
For the 2013 tour, the Fabing-Spanne house has been included thanks to the Lompoc Valley Historical Society. Built in 1875, the property is made up of a museum, blacksmith shop, library, carriage house and reference room. The house was bought by the Lompoc Valley Historical Society in 1969 and is now furnished in a Victorian style, including the dining room, which is set for a formal Christmas dinner at an antique dining table .
The tour is designed to encourage the festive spirit and all proceeds will contribute towards a scanner for the medical centre. In the UK, there are antiques dealers which have rare items of furniture. While considering Christmas decorations for the home, collectors could spend some time at a reputable dealers looking for antique dining chairs in Ribble Valley.
