The Perfect Christmas Gifts?

As a special offer to our readers, we commissioned several limited edition Christmas gifts from our award-winning Directory artisans including a hand-painted chalkware Father Christmas offering true-to-the-period boxes in the old traditional color of blue, as designed by Judi Vaillancourt and made in America by Vaillancourt Folk Art. Although we have sold out of the chalkware Santa for delivery before Christmas, Judi Vaillancourt will make a few more for delivery after the 1st of the year. We also have also sold out of the museum-quality hand-thrown decorative Blessings platter made by Greg and Mary Shooner. We still offer springerle molds and our Christmas book, A Brownsville Cabin Christmas. Click here to visit our on-line store.

Celebrate with Us this Weekend

Experience a traditional German Christmas market and meet Early American Life Publisher Tess Rosch on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16, at the Vaillancourt Folk Art Christkindlesmarkt & Artisan Show in Sutton, Massachusetts. Tess will be joined by several heritage artisans including potters Greg Shooner and Mary Spellmire-Shooner, floorcloth maker Michele Hollick, and scherenschnitte artist Pamela Dalton as well as Byers’ Choice Studio.  [MORE]

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]
