Magical Night at the Wagon Shop
The Museum Store will have its annual Holiday sale on the weekends now through Saturday, December 7: Saturdays from 10:00 to 3:00 and Sundays from noon to 4:00. The Museum Holiday Store is a great place to find unique and exciting gifts. Steilacoom calendars, mugs, notecards and books are great gifts. New jewelry and scarves are inspired by Victorian designs; wooden items remind us of Nathaniel Orr, woodworker. Wooden trains, toys and bags of blocks are perfect gifts for children today as well as yesterday. New renditions of old ideas are present with book plates and calling cards (great for exchanging email addresses!).
The Museum Holiday Store is Now Open
For most items, Steilacoom Historical Museum Association members receive 10% discount. Shop early and benefit your museum.
The traditional craft of knitting is represented by recycled knit ware designed into mittens and hats. Christmas ornaments and Santa figures sparkle and unique greeting cards are printed from original water colors. These are just a few of the items you will find at the museum store this year, in addition to the traditional gifts the store usually carries.
On Friday evening, December 6, we’ll have the Magical Night at the Wagon Shop. Drop in after 5:30. This activity coincides with Santa’s parade to the Town Hall and the lighting of the Town’s Christmas Tree. The event is open to all, but is especially fun for families and new members. Bring a friend, especially a non-member.
