The Superstition Mountain Museum’s holiday boutiques are returning in November.
The weekend of Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 27-28, means big holiday shopping and savings opportunities for visitors to the museum, 4087 N. Apache Trail (State Route 88) in Apache Junction, according to a release.
“It also is a great opportunity to get the family into the holiday spirit by enjoying all of the old-fashioned decorations that blanket the barn and museum site each year,” the release states.
Nov. 27-28 the museum will be hosting the annual Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Barn Holiday Boutique featuring artists and crafters displaying and selling their unique handmade items. Tables will be placed near the decorations and on the museum patio and grounds.
“Come and share the festive mood that will prevail and you just might find the perfect Christmas gift for someone — or yourself,” the release states.
The big trains will be running and a free ore stamp mill demonstration is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 27. Admission to the holiday barn boutique, ore mill demonstration and parking are free.
Nov. 28 will be “museum store Sunday.” The museum gift shop will be participating in an international campaign aimed at encouraging shoppers to do their holiday shopping at their local museum shops in order to find unique items and support local cultural, non-profit institutions. As an added enticement for shoppers, on that day the gift shop is having a sale on jewelry, offering 25% off pieces that make special gifts. The sale will include unique investment-quality Native American hand-crafted pieces and silver jewelry made with amethyst from the Four Peaks Amethyst Mine in Arizona. As a non-profit organization the shop does not charge sales tax.
Last-minute shoppers can wait until the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 18 and 19, to enjoy a trip to the museum and see the decorations and another weekend of holiday boutique magic.
The museum will be open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Go to superstitionmountainmuseum.org.
