Stocking Stuffer Antiques, Art, & Fine Craft Sale
December 5 & 6 (Friday & Saturday)
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Hot beverages & Refreshments
Though our signature event color is bright red, this year’s Stocking Stuffer is a very “green” occasion. Shoppers will delight in the many vendors who grow, reuse, and recycle – creating gifts with low environmental impact.
Aside from our many antique vendors, who specialize in the best of “new to you” collectibles, new to the Stocking Stuffer this year is an artisan who salvages vintage watch parts and turns them into timeless jewelry. Another creates stylish stockings, festive flowers, and more from recycled vintage fabrics, wool, and cashmere. Decorative paintings on re-purposed barn wood and recycled roofing slate are new too.
Back this year by popular demand are mittens made from up-cycled sweaters, lined with warm fleece. And the ever practical hard book covers, re-purposed and converted into purses. Locally grown gourds are carved and hand-painted into birdhouses and ornaments. And a gift everyone can enjoy is a delicious package of all natural soup mixes.
Pressed flowers, home canned foods, herbal delights, vegetable glycerin soaps, nature-inspired art …so many of our nearly 60 vendors (complete list below) have a bit of green in what they do. Shop locally and purchase our community artisans’ handmade crafts; care for our environment, and support a nonprofit organization that supports your community.
Enjoy shopping in this festively decorated Victorian ambiance. The $5 admission includes hot cider and desserts. Proceeds benefit Centre County Historical Society.

Be the first to peruse and purchase the Stocking Stuffer sale before it opens to the public. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and desserts, while enjoying music by a fiddler – a Mansion tradition dating back to the Thompson times. Refreshments are donated by the area’s finest caterers and restaurants.
