Holiday Critter Sale

Holiday Critter Sale


rat critter
Brandywine Critters are special ornaments made from all-natural materials by our volunteers. Making Critters has always been a labor of love, but this year it's been more true than ever! With stay-at-home orders forcing us all to get extra creative this year, the Brandywine's Critter volunteers spent months creating thousands of "classic Critter" favorites along with fanciful new ones, all exclusively from their homes.

This year, new practices will be in place when attending the sale in the Museum's River Room. Everyone will be required to wear a face mask (covering both the nose and mouth) while inside the building. To create a safe shopping experience with appropriate social distance, capacity will be limited to 10 customers at a time. Credit and debit card payment is preferred.

If you prefer to shop online, this year—for the first time ever—we are excited to offer 11 popular Critter styles on our new online Critter Shop. For those spending $250 or more, we will deliver for free within a 20-mile radius. Click here to browse and purchase from our online Critter Shop.

Proceeds benefit the Museum Volunteers’ Fund, and Art Education and Programming.
