The holidays are approaching and that means that the Museum of Wayne County History presents the ever popular fundraiser, the Holiday Boutique! Hundreds of visitors came last year to shop at the multitude of vendors booths and enjoy the decorations that filled the museum. Visitors bought their holiday decorations and presents from the artisans and crafters placed throughout the museum during this special event. This year the Holiday Boutique will be held for two days only, December 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Many artisans are back and some new ones have also joined us! This year’s vendors are Margo Rydman with handmade soaps; Ann Cook with handmade silver jewelry; Jack Milliken with florals and wreaths; Marsha Fuller with holiday decor; Jay Hyland with Jewelry; Terry Holt with Dolls, pin cushions, and pillows; Nancy McDougall with dichroic glass jewelry; Barb Arbogast with antique and seasonal decor; Suzie Smith with antique seasonal decor and estate jewelry; Mary O’Toole with artwork; Sandy Sloane and Sharon Loveless with Cheesecakes, and fleece products; Carol and Curt Schreiner with wire wrapped jewelry; Maia Horvath with Glass Art; the Heritage Society with all things peppermint; Sharon Yonker with cloth baskets and crochet items; Linda Shaffer with felted bags and chimes; Pam Lee with hand painted repurposed antiques; Michele DiSanto chocolate goods; Marie Taber with small crafts and baked goods; Becky Wadsworth with alpaca products; and Larry Ann Evans with Ann Collins original drawings and paintings.
The Museum will again be serving lunch on Friday and Saturday from 11-2 for $8 and coffee, teas and desserts throughout the day. Again this year, the lunch has been moved downstairs to the lower level, placing all the vendors on the first and second handicapped accessible floors.
