Burlington City Holiday House Tour Set
The tour will begin at the Historic Burlington Antiques and Art Emporium. The building is on the National Register of Historic Buildings, built between 1917 and 1924 by Edward Supper, and was used to sell and service automobiles.
To celebrate the Holiday Tour, the Emporium will give away a free poinsettia to the first 30 transactions (one per customer) on the day of the tour.
Emporium dealers have filled the special sales display case with Christmas pins, vases, goblets, perfume bottles, Christmas figures, tree ornaments, and table collectibles. The courtyard lights will be turned on early this year to put shoppers in the holiday spirit. Last year, customers and dealers filled two boxes for Toys for Tots. Help the Emporium repeat this task in the spirit of giving while providing smiles for children in need.
The light show and display case will stay decorated through January. The multi-dealer shop is located at 424 High St., Burlington City, N.J. The shop is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. The coffee pot is always on, and there are complimentary snacks for customers.
From all of the staff and dealers of the Emporium, merry Christmas, and happy new year.
