Unique Historical Gift Ideas
Available in the
Oaklands Museum Gift Shop
Are you looking for a Christmas gift for someone that loves local history and art? Oaklands Museum Shop offers items made by talented artisans whose work ranges from pottery and woodworking to tatting and novelty items. The Dining With Oaklands cookbook is a wonderful addition to any cookbook collection with over 700 recipes submitted and compiled by families and friends who love Oaklands and cherish the preservation of this historical landmark.
An elegant addition to your Christmas Tree or thoughtful hostess gift would be any of the beautiful ornaments that are for sale made from wood, glass, and slate. Lighted porcelain miniatures of the elegant Oaklands Mansion will make a wonderful addition to your Christmas village. A perfect complement to the other Rutherford County replica buildings, this collectible miniature sells for $55.00 and is available only in the Oaklands Museum Shop. The video "Caught in the Crossfire of the Civil War: The History of Oaklands" not only shares Oaklands' history, but that of Murfreesboro and the Battle of Stones River.
Historic wooden toys like yo-yos, cup-n-ball toss and goose quill pens are popular choices for the youngsters on your list. Classic games such as jacks, pick-up sticks and dominos are ideal for stockings hung by the fire with care.
So, this year, when you make your holiday gift list, check it twice. Once to see what you are buying and the second time to find a Rutherford County business to patronize. Visit the Oaklands Museum Shop to support our local businesses and buy within county borders during the holiday season.
