At the Museum Shop Around at Strathmore, 20 non-profit organizations bring their museum gift shops to the beautifully decorated Mansion at Strathmore so that you can get your holiday shopping done all under one roof. This event is an annual tradition for shoppers looking to find museum-quality decorative arts, handcrafted jewelry, apparel, glassware, toys, books, CDs, plants, paper goods and many other items for their holiday and gift shopping.
This is a great place to find unique holiday gifts including fun and funky jewelry like baubles crafted from mixed metals, positive quotes stamped on metal plates, and vintage finds; sleek, organic handcrafted sterling jewelry; and iridescent bracelets made from glass cast in bronze. The Museum Shop Around will also feature hand-carved wooden beard combs; kitschy candy cane and guitar tea infusers; plantable paper herb kits with vintage silverware garden markers; hand-poured soy candles in repurposed wine bottles in vino-inspired fragrances; limited edition Blenko Glass hand-blown water bottles celebrating the seasons; socks emblazoned with classic works of art, and more.
