The American Artisan Show will take place Saturday, November 4, from 10:00 – 5:00 and Sunday, November 5 from 10:00 – 4:00. Admission is $10; under 18 free. Fifty highly-skilled artisans from across the country will be presenting their work and its influences that have been part of American fine handwork since the 18th century. Shaker-style furniture, pottery, baskets, candles, quilts, Windsor chairs, rugs, floor cloths, art, tavern signs, fine jewelry – and even beautifully turned peppermills will be available for purchase. The show is fittingly set in the Society's charming 18th and 19th century buildings.
