The village's restored historic buildings, which date from 1691 to 1912, will be open with historical interpretations and demonstrations of the trades and crafts from the mid-1800s.

Featured items at the show include country and Victorian furniture, silver, ephemera, glass, linens and textiles, pottery, primitives, toys, books, Americana, and more! New for 2012, the Needle Arts Coop is a learning center featuring interactive lessons and information on handmade crafts and skills. Take-home kits and supplies are available for purchase along with specialty items made by local and Village artisans.
