Norman’s Attic This Saturday
Arlington is the place to be on Saturday, August 3, when St. James’ Episcopal Church again presents the community-wide festival of Norman’s Attic from 9 to 4. More than 65 vendors from all over New England will be present, rain or shine, with a wide variety of unique items, gifts, crafts and collectibles. You’ll find woven items, pottery, art, jewelry, china, linens, antiques, dried flowers, home-made jams, knitwear, children‘s activities, and much more. The talented and energetic Wild Country Cloggers are scheduled to perform at 11, 12 and 1.
There will be plenty to satisfy your palate as well, with a great array of delicious foods of many different kinds, including the justly famous St. James’ Grill, and the very popular home-made wraps and salad booth. Finish up your meal with a delicious dessert — and don’t forget to make your take-home selection from the other baked goods available.
There will be printed self-guided tours of the historic St. James’ cemetery and the church itself. Parishioners will be helping answer visitors’ questions as well. It’s an event for the whole family and people of all ages.
Listed as one of Yankee Magazine’s top 20 Vermont events, this popular event has been held for 18 years in historic Arlington, the home of beloved American artist Norman Rockwell and his family from 1939 to 1953. You are most cordially invited to come and join the fun!
