Plan on coming and doing some Christmas gift shopping. This is pretty much the one time of year that you can get “ready made” at Heritage. We have seven vendors and will have a table of gift ideas for the fiber lovers on your list. More info here.
Christmas: Closing Christmas Eve at 3:00 PM and reopening with normal hours on Thursday the 26th at 10:00 AM.
New Year’s: Closing New Year’s Eve at 3:00 PM. Open New Year’s Day from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM for our annual party and sale. Enjoy complimentary soup and bread made by Joan and Ann-Marie, plus other yummy goodies that invariably “appear.” Bring your knitting or spinning or other small craft project and enjoy being with people you want to be with and not having the TV going in the background. Indulge yourself and spend the day. If you are feeling virtuous, start the day with the New Year’s Resolution Run and Walk in downtown Lake Orion. More info here.
