A Pennsylvania Tradition
Wendell August Forge makes handcrafted Christmas ornaments and gifts for every occasion in its Mercer factory, one of Pennsylvania’s oldest metal forges. The Christmas in July holiday tradition has its origins in 1940’s Pennsylvania, when Philadelphia’s Calgary Baptist Church collected Christmas gifts in July, giving ample time for shipping to missions worldwide.
Exclusive 2015 Christmas Ornament Collection
Many of the ornaments depict scenes from Pennsylvania landmarks such as its historic bridges and Independence Hall. And, for Penn State fans, Wendell August has ornaments, trays and coasters with the Nittany Lion mascot. In addition to Christmas-themed ornaments, tree toppers, and tableware, the Forge is offering its exclusive home décor collections, designer jewelry, and whimsical line of Little Earth handbags with special event pricing.
Vintage Metal Arts Made in Pennsylvania
Vintage items and patterns showcasing the company’s history from its original Brockway location will be made available at the event, including one-of-a-kind antiques from the Knecht family collection. Take home a piece of Pennsylvania history and support American-made metal arts and craftsmanship. There’s a gift for everyone. For more information, visit wendellaugust.com.
