With Prices from $3 to to $395, Our 300th Items Fit Any Budget for Perfect Holiday Gifts .....

Our headquarters at the Flemington Choir School, 3 Chorister Place in Flemington Borough, has been busy, busy, busy during our open hours on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.  With the holidays here, savvy Hunterdon shoppers have been buying up commemorative items and avoiding the malls at the same time!

Volunteers staffing the Choir School have been selling our 300th woven cotton throw like crazy!  We just placed our first re-order so that we'll have plenty of throws for holiday gift giving.  The throws are 100% cotton, made in the USA, and come in 3 colors:  navy blue, a vibrant cranberry, and hunter green.  They are $35 each.

Other big sellers include Hunterdon Historian John Kuhl's book "Hunterdon and the Civil War" ($15), our handmade in Hunterdon sunflower bowl ($3) which is almost sold out, and our Euro-style car magnet ($10) which we have been seeing on more and more cars around our county.

We also have our lapel pin ($5), t-shirts ($15 - $17) and beautiful black and white "architecture of Hunterdon" blank note cards by photographer Audrey Kerchner ($5) for sale.  Don't forget to grab a 300 Fun Facts About Hunterdon County tear-off calendar for $3 (come to the companion lecture on this subject January 22nd!).

Perfect for the holidays and still on pre-sale with a 20% discount is Walter Choroszewski's photography book Hunterdon in My Heart.  The book sells for $40 but will be going up to it's book jacket price of $50 on December 8.

Walter will be available to sign books from 1 to 4 pm on both Saturday, December 14th at the Red Mill Museum and Sunday, December 15th at The Flemington Choir School just in time for the holidays.  Pre-sold orders may be picked up then and additional books will be available for purchase.  Refreshments will be available at both signings courtesy of our super sponsor, Shop Rite of Hunterdon.

If your office co-workers are looking for a definitive gift for your boss, or you have someone in your life with the same passion for our County as we have, a wonderful gift is Hunterdon artist Dan Campanelli's print of his watercolor "Blue Skies."  This signed and numbered, limited edition print of the Hunterdon County Historic Courthouse comes both framed ($395) and unframed ($195).  The print is limited to only 300 and is going to be deed restricted for 100 years until the 400th celebration. 

You can check out all of the items on our website or just stop by any Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
