Visitors find it such a pleasure to shop in their clean, climate-controlled, brightly lit and carpeted mall that they rate it, “One of The Best shopping experiences in? Lancaster? County!”

During the sale the Mall will also be featuring several presentations from its dealers.

On Saturday, October 11 through Monday, October 13, local artisan Lynn Hathy will be demonstrating Folk Art Painting on Furniture. Furniture painting dates back to the early medieval times. Brides’ boxes and dowry trunks were decorated with the bride’s family coat of arms. Most furniture was ornamented with simple designs. Today, Lynn with her many years of expertise, creates her own patterns and designs which reflect many thoughts and trends of our present generation with each piece telling its very own story. Demonstrations will take place during the day between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On Sunday, October 12, there will be a presentation on open salts. George and Deb Cross have been collecting open salts since the early 1990’s and have over 1,000 in their collection.

They are members of The Open Salt Collectors of the Atlantic Region.?? Their presentation will take place from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
