News from the Gift Shop Committee
The big news is that we are having two fund raising events this fall to help support our Museum.
First of all, we now have, in a limited edition, a handcrafted glass cup plate for sale in our Gift Shop. The plate honors the City of Ypsilanti with the profiles of our founder, Benjamin Woodruff and our namesake Demetrius Ypsilanti. These may be purchased at the Museum in two colors, amethyst or cobalt blue. They are attractively priced and packaged. A nice Christmas gift!
The second event will take place at the Christmas Open House in December. At that time a Drawing will be held for a beautiful 17 inch bisque doll which was donated to the Historical Society by Mrs. Christine Blinn of the Doll Collector Shop. Tickets at $1.00 each may be purchased from the Museum Office, at the November meeting of the Historical Society, or Marge Gauntlett, 483–1876. The doll is an antique reproduction of a French Jumeau doll. She is a custom made doll with original clothes appropriate to the period. Buy your tickets now. Maybe you will be the lucky person to receive the doll just in time for a Christmas surprise! The doll is on display at the Museum until the December Open House.
