Thank you to Huffman Floors

The Society would like to thank Huffman Floors in North Cape May for their generous donation of floor material and installation at the Colonial House. For over 50 years, Huffman Floor Covering has put customers first and we can attest to that.

No homeowner is the same. Our little Colonial House needed a bathroom floor. We tried working with the big box stores but we were not a consideration since it was not a big job. Huffman Floors provided a unique, custom experience working with us to coordinate tasks prior to the installation. Come see for yourself what a fine job they did. We highly recommend you contact this local business for your floor needs. They did an amazing job. You won’t be disappointed. Stop in and visit Huffman Floors ( located at 3860 Bayshore Road, North Cape May (near the Post Office and Bacharach). Tell them we sent you!

13th Annual Antiques and Craft Fair
Hello Members and Friends of the Society:

The Greater Cape May Historical Society wishes to thank you for your support for the 13th Annual Antique and Craft Fair held this year in Wilbraham Park.

The Fair generated over $3000 for our operating funds for the coming year. We could not maintain the Colonial House without your generous support, as a vendor taking the time to transport their fine selection of products; volunteers who donated their time and effort to set up the fair; and the generous support of the community who made donations to the White Elephant table. We hope all of our visitors found a great buy,perhaps, an addition to a collection, or one of the intriguing items found in art on canvas, pottery, jewelry or collectible.

We plan to hold the 14th annual fair mid-June next year and we hope to see you at the fair next year. Better yet, visit us in person at the Colonial House. We are open for the season on Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. We close after Labor Day and reopen for Victorian Weekend.

See you then!
