--November 8, 2013.

The annual Christmas tea and boutique sale at the Colby-Curtis Museum is fast approaching, and staff and volunteers at the Stanstead Historical Society are urging people to mark their calendars for this early chance to get into the holiday spirit while supporting this local cultural institution.

The tea, which will include all of the usual delicacies prepared on premises, will take place during two consecutive weeks this year. It will take place on Thursday and Friday, November 21-22 (1 to 3:30 p.m.), Saturday, November 23 (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), and on Thursday and Friday the following week, November 28-29 (1 to 3:30 p.m.). As this is a popular event, reservations are definitely required.

In conjunction with this year's tea, the historical society is also holding its annual Christmas sale in the museum boutique. Boutique supervisor Irene Poulin and her team of volunteers have been working hard to prepare the boutique, which has been well stocked for this year's event with a wide variety of gift items, including books by local authors, cards, crafts, jewellery, holiday decorations, collectibles and antiques, and home accessories of all kinds. There is an excellent selection, and visitors are sure to find something they like.

The sale takes place on one day only, Saturday, November 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Entry, of course, is free.

The Colby-Curtis Museum is located at 535 Dufferin in Stanstead. For reservation for the Christmas tea, call (819) 876-7322.
