Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY) is once again offering locally made Adirondack Balsam Wreaths for sale this holiday season.
There is an earlier deadline to order wreaths this year and all orders must be submitted by Friday, November 22nd for a December 7th pick-up date at The TAUNY Center in Canton or to be shipped to family and friends across the country.
Each year, TAUNY works with naturalist and North Country Heritage Award recipient Jane Desotelle to offer handmade balsam wreaths for the holidays. All wreaths are made to order with balsam fir and natural decorations from private lands of the Adirondack foothills. The wreaths can usually remain on display until Spring.
Wreaths are available in three sizes and with various color options. The prices by size are $30 (small), $40 (medium), and $50 (large), and can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. for additional shipping charges.
Details can be found and orders can be placed online, or at The TAUNY Center at 53 Main Street, Canton. More information is available at (315) 386-4289 or by emailing [email protected] Half the cost of each wreath is a tax-deductible donation to TAUNY.
The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, Downtown Canton.
