The Revere Society for Cultural and Historic Preservation (RSCHP) is stocked with holiday items that celebrate the history of Revere. On December 5, RSCHP presented a Museum Shop Day in the main meeting room, and featured their 2020 ornament. Designed by committee member, Vanessa Biasella, Director of Gift Shop Operations, the ornament highlights the faÃ§ade of the newly renovated museum building.
â€œWeâ€™re noticing that people have been saying, â€˜We didnâ€™t know you had this,â€™â€ said Bob Upton, President. â€œWe have a full line of Norman Gautreau prints, and the Revere Beach Chips book, by Peter McCauley. Weâ€™re excited about our new line of t-shits.â€
Learn about Revereâ€™s richness through history books, stunning images of Revere Beach, and a childrenâ€™s coloring book. Purchase whimsical t-shirts with statements such as â€œFree Ticket to Wonderland,â€ and â€œTake Me Down to Old Revere Beach,â€ which illustrates a pair of young ladies frolicking in the ocean.
â€œWeâ€™ve had a good turnout,â€ added Upton, â€œand are practicing social distancing with a hand a sanitizing station when you come in, and contact tracing.â€
Visit the Revere Society for Cultural and Historic Preservation, located at 108 Beach Street, on Saturday, December 12, 9-11am, for the next Museum Shop Day. For more information, call (781) 286-2226.
