  • Enjoy savory snacks by candlelight
  • Gather around the fire for conversation. 
  • Stroll by candlelight from the Tavern to the Shop where we’ll serve sweets – including Sally Lunn and Gingerbread with our own private labeled jams and jellies, and freshly brewed gourmet tea.  Browse all our other unique gift items selected with an eye for that early American flair and a Made in America label.
