Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center – great day trip

I think I am technically supposed to blog about glass beads, but this post is about the “glass” part of that!! If you have a chance, schedule a visit to the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in Millville NJ. You can read all about it at www.wheatonarts.org I was just there, and it reminded me what a terrific spot it is. The historic glass collection is focussed on NJ and is beautifully displayed. The gift shops are lovely, and this time of year they have a wonderful Christmas shop. Although the high end of what they sell in glass is pricey, they have plenty of affordable stuff, even some glass BEADS! Best of all, you can make a reservation to make a paperweight at the furnace, which is done by appointment only. My husband did it, took about 40 minutes, and then they mail it to you when it is cool. I can believe how beautiful and professional it looks, you could give it as a gift or just treasure it yourself, and he reports it was a lot of fun. Check out the website for more info. I hope everyone is working hard on holiday gifts (I haven’t started, but I should……) Jeri
