Plymouth Historical Museum Gearing Up for Annual Craft Bazaar

The museum is now accepting applications for its annual juried Craft Bazaar, which will be held Dec. 7.
Looking for unique holiday presents for family and friends? How about hand-made crafts?

The Plymouth Historical Museum will host its 8th Annual Juried Craft Bazaar on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Applications are now being accepted. Applicants need to submit three to four photos of craft items for judges to determine participants as there is a limit of crafters to five per category. Table rentals are $30 each, and most are 8 feet wide, although there are some space variations available. Space is tight, so venders will need to limit their display area to the size of the table or an equivalent space.

Linda Trewin of Livonia has been participating in the bazaar as a crafter for all eight years.

“I do it for the museum,” she said.

Trewin’s table will consist of knitted scarves, dish cloths and necklaces, beaded bracelets and a variety of custom earrings.

“It’s at a good time – it’s the beginning of December,” she said. “I got into crafts when I was going to college and working more than 40 hours a week because I couldn’t come down at night. I’ve been knitting and crocheting for 10 to 12 years. I’m not an expert at it like some of my friends are that can make baby clothes. But I can knit necklaces and dish cloths. They really like the cotton dish cloths that I make because they’re so versatile.”

The Museum is offering free admission that day for both Museum patrons and Craft Bazaar shoppers.
