Just in time for Mother’s Day, spring birthdays, graduations, bridal showers or that summer wedding, the Gift Shoppe at the Historic Asa Waters Mansion will throw open its doors on Saturday morning, May 3rd from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
THIS MANSION IS MINE, the Asa Waters Mansion coloring book for children and collectors of all ages and a vast array of gifts, memorabilia, and collectibles will be available for that special occasion or just to treat yourself.
Also for the children on your list, the shoppe offers Revolutionary War Musket Ball Point Pens and games, historical coloring books and paper dolls. Girls of all ages will love silver flip flop earrings, “theme” bracelets, and the ever popular Red Sox and New England Patriots jewelry from the Mary Ann Shaw collection. For the “hard to shop for” men – the shoppe features a wide variety of history books and handmade wooden “Armory Village” signs. Any woman would love Pages of My Life, a book of poems by Eleanor Wilmont Vincelette, chronicling her growing up years in Millbury.
Tea lovers may choose from a vast selection of bone china Tea Cup and Saucer Sets for only $10.00, bone china thimbles and a beautiful selection of Asa Waters Mansion note cards and magnets from the “Petal ‘n Fern” Collection.
All shopping will be on the first floor – come browse for that one-of-kind gift and help support the preservation and restoration of “Millbury’s Town Jewel” at the same time.
The Asa Waters Mansion, located at 123 Elm Street in Millbury, is listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places.
