Holiday Critter Sale

Holiday Critter Sale

The Brandywine Museum of Art will host its annual Holiday Critter Sale this year at the Chadds Ford Historical Society. 

Browse and shop from thousands of unique, handcrafted ornaments and tabletop decorations made from all-natural materials by the Brandywine’s dedicated and talented volunteers. Each Critter has its own unique personality and expression—no two are exactly the same. From whimsical animals—like cats, dogs, reindeer and bears—to heavenly angels and stars, Critters come in all shapes and sizes.

Using their imaginations, the Critter-maker volunteers work with natural materials such as pine cones, acorns, egg shells, flowers and seed pods to give each Critter its own unique personality and expression. Prices range from $10 to $35, with specialty items from $50 to $250. All sales are credit card only.

Public Sale Hours:

  • Thursday, November 30–Saturday, December 2, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
