Stocking Stuffer Antiques, Art, & Fine Craft Sale

Friday & Saturday, December 5 & 6, 2014
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Hot beverages & Refreshments
$5.00 admission

Though our signature event color is bright red, but 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 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.
