Milford Art Ramble


By Anne Jenkins

This Holiday season please help support your local artists and artisans – shop local! Milford has a wealth of great artists and local galleries and shops to frequent. Check out our all-year self-guided studio tour –

If you’re male and haven’t a clue what to get your loved ones and can’t wrap presents to save yourself, this one is for you (well, okay, females have this problem as well and everyone is welcome!)  Downtown Milford’s Men’s Night Christmas Shopping Night is on Wednesday, 14 December from 5:00-8:00 p.m. You can complete your shopping in one night. You get to be treated to refreshments, beverages or nibbles plus the all important, free gift wrapping. And to top it all – if you still can‘t decide, Gift certificates are available from all the participating shops – many of the art ramble group will be open. Here’s the list of businesses taking part: Anne Jenkins Art Gallery, Bikes, etc., Blooming Boutique, Dolce Bakery & Coffee, Eco Chic, Earth Friendly Boutique, Fur Baby Boutique, Good News Natural Foods, The Lady Bug Shop, Lou’s Bootery, Mispillion Art League Gallery and Riverside antique Mall.

Be sure to visit all Milford artists – remember – they live in Milford, work in Milford and what they sell in their galleries and studios is made right here in Milford. Here’s the round up of what’s on in your artistic community. Enjoy the music, the dance, the sculptures, pottery, the paintings and the yummy culinary arts right here in your hometown.
