DEL NORTE—Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Rio Grande County Museum’s Gift Shoppe is open and has a variety of items that would make a perfect gift for a special mother.
A new selection of books has been received that include coloring books for adults and children, recipe books and history books. Handcrafted items including pot holders by Jean Hanna, jewelry by Patti Haught, crocheted doilies by Judy Nicolais, prints by Sharon Edwards and gourd pots by Byron Williams are available in the Gift Shoppe. Greeting cards by Yvonne Halburian, Sharon Edwards and Toni Colville can be sent for a special thought for mom. The snow mates are still available for the snow man collector. These are handcrafted and each are named with various cultures represented.
The Gift Shoppe at the Museum is managed by the museum staff, but the Rio Grande County Museum non-profit board receives the proceeds as fundraising for museum projects such as new computers, new showcases and various other activities done by the non-profit board and the museum.
