“Life, Liberty, Happiness,” three words that are synonymous with the festivity surrounding summer celebrations;
For the youngsters or perhaps just the child at heart, consider the America-opoly Game. Offering a twist on the classic game, this game celebrates our great nation. Buy properties such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Route 66, the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls. Land on “Fourth of July” and scoop up the cash from the center of the board. But beware you may end up in a traffic jam or worse yet, be audited by the IRS! Whatever happens, America-opoly is good ol’ American fun for family and friends. Proudly made here in the states, this game is on sale now for $34.95 during the SYW summer sale.
If it’s wall décor on your mind, there are many choices at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. Though a couple items in particular, are worth mentioning for patriotic gift ideas this summer. A returning favorite, the Ode to Liberty Sign, is inspired by the 15 star flag that flew over Fort McHenry when the Star Spangled Banner was penned. This sign is printed directly onto distressed wood panels for a truly antique look. Another option that’s new for the summer season, is entitled Lincoln Folk Art by New Hampshire artist Tim Campbell. Sharing his interpretation of a patriotic Abe Lincoln, this framed print is perfect for the history buff or folk art lover. Both pieces of wall art are American made products and are on sale now for $69.95. See Lincoln Folk Art here: http://www.sturbridgeyankee.com/
Finally, if in search of a quality heirloom piece or space saving solution, the Americana Storage bench fulfills both those needs (seen above). The handcrafted in North Carolina bench features a safety latch, side handles and a vintage finish. The inset image of a waving American Flag is achieved through an embossed printing process involving the use of original brass printing plates, once used in the 1920's and 30's. Store games, toys, reading materials and extra blankets anywhere you need a little organization. Customers can save $30 on each storage bench purchase this summer at SYW.
