Derby Historical Society to hold Christmas fair

ANSONIA - Join members of the Derby Historical Society for a cup of hot cider at an annual “Christmas Fair” from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 7 at the David Humphreys House, 37 Elm St.

Docents will be giving free tours of the David Humphreys House.

New this year:  ribbon bookmarks and four separate children's workshops - potpourri sachets, paperclip and bead angel necklace, lemon pomanders and cinnamon ornaments.
Kits for each will be sold from $1 and up, instructions included. Items are suitable for stocking stuffers or grandparents' gifts.

The gift shop has unique toys, local history books, watercolor prints, and an exclusive Derby Historical Society ornament.
There will also be handmade doll clothes made to fit 18" dolls, such as "American Girl."
Purchase home-made Christmas cookies at a bake sale to save on baking time and trouble - buy individually or by the tray.
All proceeds from this event go to fund the Society's children's programs.

Limited parking is available in the rear of the building. Additional on-street parking is available on nearby Thomas Street. For information call 203-735-1908.
