Living among the trees and hills and valleys and neighborhoods of our little town, the people of Nelson will leave their homes on November 7 and gather in Nelson Village to overflow it with items for sale and/or information about their hobbies, passions, occupations and livelihoods:

sawing complex jigsaw puzzles

clearing walking trails in our woods

folding paper into origami

protecting the water quality of our lakes and ponds

boiling maple syrup

recording CDs of local performing artists

advocating for agricultural activities

planning art exhibits for Nelson’s sestercentennial

writing about Nelson’s history, as well as fiction and poetry

wrapping beads with wire into custom jewelry

crafting by some of Nelson’s school children

extracting local honey

continuing the Friends of the Library summer book sale

painting landscapes, flowers and abstracts

performing live on the stage in our preserved Town Hall

constructing wreathes for our holiday doors

studying Nelson’s future sustainability

carving wood into decoys

preparing a revised local phone book

drawing Zentangles on shelf mushrooms

revamping Hotel Nelson Revisited into a CD

spinning yarns, stuffing duvets, weaving and knitting with wool from Nelson’s sheep

sculpting forms from stone

selling food from what’s prepared in our kitchens and grown in our fields

and handcrafting many more items that add to this impressive variety of skills

Don’t forget the new edition of the Nelson Phone book being sold for $2 in the lower level of the library.

And, if this list doesn’t tempt you, come by to pick up the 3rd annual “collector’s item” calendar depicting old photographs from Nelson and Munsonville. This 2016 edition focuses on the occupations, hard work and passions of some of our earlier residents—thus honoring their contributions to our town.

There will be door prize drawings for those who visit all three venues

Light refreshments will be available

Don’t miss this wonderful display of

the many talents of our Nelson neighbors
