Meet the Makers: A Colonial Craft Faire
December 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Did you know that Paul Revere and his fellow Congregationalists likely worked on Christmas Day and saved gift exchanges and parties for New Year’s Day? No matter when or how you celebrate the closing of the year it is often a time to express our love and appreciation with a thoughtful token. Find the perfect gifts for your favorite folks at our Colonial Craft Faire. Our local artisans work all year in traditional methods to create beautiful and useful items for sale. Meet our talented craftspeople, learn how they work and find unique gifts for your loved ones in our Education and Visitor Center. Enjoy period holiday pieces played on the harpsichord and virginal by R.P. Hale while your shop, and be sure to visit the Paul Revere House as well. The period rooms will reflect Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years customs common in Colonial Boston.
