Handmade Wreaths Featured in Online Fundraiser
Browse Dozens of Unique Creations, Bid in Support of the Stonington Historical Society
Our annual Deck the Walls event, a seasonal favorite for vendors and patrons alike, is moving online this year to accommodate everyone’s safety during the pandemic.
For more than a dozen years now, the Stonington Historical Society has gathered one-of-a-kind, handmade wreaths and holiday décor and invited community members to bid on their favorites. Each item is generously donated by local florists, interior designers, students, businesses, non-profits, and others looking to showcase their creativity. This year, the Historical Society will display each wreath virtually at deckthewalls.givesmart.com, where bidders can register for free to place their bids. The site is designed for use on a smartphone, alerting participants if they’ve won – or been outbid.
The auction begins on Wednesday, Dec. 2, and continues through Friday, Dec. 4. Winners may pick up their items at the Capt. Nathaniel Palmer House, 40 Palmer St.
Deck the Walls is held in collaboration with the Stonington Garden Club.
All proceeds from the event support the Historical Society’s community programming, its museums, and the Woolworth Library.
Founded in 1895, the Stonington Historical Society preserves, interprets and celebrates the history of all of Stonington, Conn. The Historical Society owns and operates the Captain Nathaniel B. Palmer House, the Lighthouse Museum and the Woolworth Research Library, as well as maintaining its collection of objects and documents, and offering educational programming throughout the year.
