Paper Cutting Crafts: Halloween Decorations Oct 19 2014
Antiques, Collectibles, and New England Crafts, Oct 19, 2014, @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Join the fun at the Antiques, Collectibles, and New England Crafts Show on Sunday, October 19, 2014, on the grounds of the Smith-Appleby House Museum, 220 Stillwater Road, Smithfield, RI.

From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., visit antique dealer booths peddling their historic, vintage, and collectible items. See a live blacksmith demonstration, a weaver, and a wool demonstration. There will be many quality craft artisans’ booths of handmade soaps, baskets, various country items, baked goods, jewelry — and many more handmade items.

In the afternoon, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., kids are invited to participate in a special Paper Cutting Crafts project where they can cut and fold and make their own Halloween decoration. The event features Scherenschnitte (shear-n-snit-a), the charming art of paper cutting, and the fun will be presented in the barn for young and old alike.

And, throughout the day, everyone is encouraged to tour the historic Smith-Appleby House Museum to see and hear what daily life was really like in Colonial Rhode Island during the American Revolution. Tours are led by educators and history enthusiasts in Colonial dress.

The Antiques, Collectibles, and New England Crafts Show is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., rain or shine, and admission is free.

Admission to the Paper Cutting Crafts event (1 p.m. – 4 p.m.), and to the House Museum tours (all day), is $5 for adults and free for children.
