If you've been following along on this blog, then you know that over the past few weeks I've been making suggestions on local places to shop for your handmade holiday gifts.  When you shop locally, your money helps to support the local economy.  And, when you buy handmade, you help to support a local artist.  Another wonderful opportunity to shop locally and support neighborhood artisans is happening this weekend, Saturday December 14th at the Mustill Store Holiday Open House, 11am-3pm.

The Mustill House and Store decked with boughs of greenery.

You're familiar with the Mustill Store, right?  The Mustill Store is the historic house and store that is located on the Ohio & Erie National Heritage Canalway--right along the Towpath (at the bottom of North Street, just above Howard Street).  The Mustill Store serves as the primary visitor's center for the Canalway.  The building's operation and volunteers are organized by the Cascade Locks Park Association who also work with others to help preserve and develop the area.  Remember Canal Fest and the Duck Derby this past summer?  That previous event as well as this week's Holiday Open House are fundraisers to help support this local non-profit organization and it's preservation of Akron's history.  For more information, check out the website for the Cascade Locks Park Association here.

Help support the CLPA and shop the Holiday Open House.

Saturday, Dec. 14th's Holiday Open House at the Mustill Store will be featuring locally made items such as items such as soap, honey, jam, scarves, hats, and more.  There will also be complimentary beverages and food treats for those shopping!  Not able to attend this Saturday?  You can also visit the Store the following days during the week for these extended hours: Sunday Dec. 15th 11am-3pm, Monday Dec. 16th 9am-6pm, Tuesday Dec. 17th 9am-6pm, Weds Dec. 18th 9am-3pm, Thursday Dec. 19th 9am-3pm, Friday Dec. 20th 9am-3pm.
