For the sixth consecutive year, more than 1,800 museum stores representing all 50 states and 24 countries will offer inspired shopping at cultural institutions during Museum Store Sunday on Nov. 27. In celebration of this annual initiative, the Museum Shop at the Chenango County Historical Society (CCHS) is joining museum stores worldwide with special hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate Museum Store Sunday by offering merchandise for the whole family while encouraging our communities to shop local,” said Joseph Fryc, operations manager. “Museum Store Sunday provides patrons with opportunities to purchase unique merchandise while supporting our efforts to share and celebrate the unique local heritage of Chenango County.”
The CCHS Museum Shop offers a variety of gifts for the holiday season – from stocking stuffers to exclusive local merchandise – with all purchases supporting the organization’s mission. Patrons are encouraged to browse the unique offerings available at the CCHS Museum Shop, such as collectible Currier & Ives calendars from 1967, 1978, 1989, and 1995 – years which have the same calendar as 2023. Other specialized merchandise includes Norwich Pharmacal Company cancelled stock certificates, City of Norwich Centennial Banners, wooden replicas of iconic New Berlin locales, hand-painted crocks, and table-top amusements.
Shoppers can look forward to Museum Store Sunday as the global annual day to shop conscientiously in support of CCHS locally while simultaneously celebrating the museum community globally. Online shopping year-round at www.ChenangoHistorical.org/shop features many of the CCHS publications available in-store, plus a wide variety of exclusive branded apparel, totes, and postcards.
