The Perfect Christmas Gifts?

We've sold out of the large “Woodland Gift” Santas mentioned in our Christmas issue, but we still have a few of the medium-size (19-inch tall) Santas available. Designed and hand-crafted by Stacee Droit at Arnett's Country Store, these Santas were specially commissioned by us and are only available to our readers, one to a customer. Once this limited edition sells out, no more will be made. Each special Santa comes with a numbered certificate signed by the artist. (See page 68 of our Chirstmas issue for full details.) Call us at 440-543-8566 to be sure we still have one left for you.

Christmas Is Here!

We publish our special Christmas issue in September so that you can make holiday plans and have time to order custom-made products that will be ready as gifts on the big day. Copies are already on their way to subscribers (and most should have them by now) and it should be on the newsstand through the holiday—although that's often up to the whims of the newsstand manager—ask for a copy if you don’t see it. What's inside? Read further to find out.  [MORE]

Historic Richmond Town Showcases 2019 Directory

Historic Richmond Town, a living history community and museum on Staten Island in New York, will host the 2019 Directory of Traditional American Crafts. The museum has opened its doors for photography of the work of many of the artists selected for the Directory whose work was deemed to be the top quality in their field, appropriate to a museum collection. Handmade works fashioned in historically accurate styles selected by our jury of museum curators and other experts will be placed among the historic exhibits and will appear in the August 2019 issue of Early American Life.  [MORE]
