Penns Colony

Penns Colony

This is one of our favorite shows that we do throughout the year.  It is located right outside of the village of Saxonburg, PA which is also close to Pittsburgh.  It features true craftsmen in colonial costume, many of them demonstrating their craft, talking, and interacting with their customers.   Make a quick visit to their website, Penns Colony  and you can get a wonderful feel for all of the activities that make up this major Pennsylvania event every fall.

Penns Colony is a living historical colonial experience that the whole family takes part in.  The many activities include carriage rides, period entertainment, colonial games, face painting, battle reenactments, and lots of great food.  It is also a celebration of the American Craftsman and a great example of unique and one of a kind items which contribute to the Handmade Movement.  As I have said before, I think people are tired of cookie cutter items and are looking for something unique and made by hand to give as gifts and to use themselves, something that has a story behind it ,along with a real person and is American made!
