The weekend event includes holiday crafts in the festive atmosphere of the Trenton City Museum where patrons can browse for gifts of hand crafted jewelry, pottery, stained glass, original art works, handmade pillows, ornaments, Trenton memorabilia, and much more. The boutique coincides with Holidays in the Victorian Room, which will feature period holiday decorations as well as an opportunity to see our current exhibits.

This long running event has expanded over the years and, as with many cultural institutions, the Trenton Museum Society now relies on artists, craftspeople, and patrons to help keep this historic building open and to continue artistic programs and events. The Holiday Boutique has become a premiere event featuring diverse and interesting art and crafts that attract discriminating shoppers. The Trenton Museum Society encourages all Trenton area shoppers to join us in what promises to be a wonderful weekend.
