The holiday season is in full swing, and shoppers will find a fantastic assortment of gifts – including dozens of locally made items – at Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s Holiday Boutique in the Barn! Located in our beautiful historic red carriage barn, the Holiday Boutique is open from Thursdays to Sundays through December 18.
KTM&HC volunteer and Holiday Boutique coordinator Rhonda Hill emphasized that proceeds from Holiday Boutique sales provide crucial support for KTM&HC’s mission-driven work. “This event is a key source of revenue for our museum each year, and it’s also a great opportunity to highlight the talent of local artists, artisans, and authors: artwork by Tina Phillips, Tracy Hoerdemann, Cheryl Crowl, Connie Fenton, Anthony Villanueva; gold-leaf trees by Joann Spence; jewelry by Susie Singers; books by Ira Joe Fisher and Douglas Haynes; and so much more! Many of these items are exclusive to the Holiday Boutique and limited in quantity, so be sure to stop in soon.”
The Holiday Boutique also features jewelry and cards created by local high school artists, as well as items provided by Regional Hospice. Proceeds from sales of the latter will benefit their organization. Popular products with national attention – like Bee’s Wrap, Stonewall Kitchen products, and crystal phone chargers featured on the Today Show – are selling quickly. And don’t leave without a container or two of our famous cranberry chutney, a decades-long tradition with an award-winning recipe! Purchase at the Holiday Boutique or order online.
The Holiday Boutique is open through December 18, Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is available on site at 152 Main Street, Ridgefield. For more information, go to our website at www.keelertavernmuseum.org/events.
