Join us at the Noah Webster House on December 1, 2, and 3 for the Fourth Annual Holiday Market!
You will have the opportunity to find the best gifts for family and friends while also supporting small, local businesses this holiday season. Over 20 local vendors will be set up throughout the museum offering a wide range of art, crafts, and handmade gift items. The Holiday Market will be open for shopping on Friday, December 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, December 2 & 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The West Hartford Gift Shop is the anchor vendor at the Holiday Market and will have many products available, including the new cozy West Hartford and Connecticut sweaters and scarfs, the Julia Gash collection, featuring the town’s most iconic features and the places that make our town unique. The gift shop also carries a selection of literary-themed items including scarves, notecards, and drinkware.
The 2023 limited-edition West Hartford Collectible holiday ornament featuring the gazebo in the Helen S. Kaman Rose Garden located in Elizabeth Park will be available for purchase. A limited number of ornaments are available, so we recommend pre-ordering at westhartfordgiftshop.com. Ornaments may be picked up at the Holiday Market.
Artisans will be showcasing their artwork in many categories including jewelry, candles, pottery, notecards, woodworking pieces, fiber arts and so much more. A sampling of vendors includes WeHa Candle Co., Vivid Cottage, Bloom Worthy Floral and Taylor Martone Pottery and many more. For a full listing of vendors, check out our Facebook event page.
The Holiday Market will take place at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society, 227 South Main St., West Hartford, CT 06107, on Friday, December 1 from 5-8 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday, December 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No registration is required. The museum suggests a $5 donation upon entry, which helps support museum educational initiatives.
The museum is offering this holiday tradition to support local businesses, many of them newer and without their own brick and mortar location. The businesses have an opportunity to showcase their products and sell directly to as well as return the favor by donating a portion of their proceeds to the museum. A special thank you to the Mangs family for sponsoring this year’s Holiday Market!
