The Niagara History Center’s three sites will kick off the first weekend in December with something for everyone on Saturday. The busy day starts with the chance to do some serious holiday shopping from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Erie Canal Discovery Center, 24 Church St.

The Lock, Stock & Barrel Holiday Gift Market will offer a wide variety of locally produced treasures for everyone on your holiday gift list, including handcrafted jewelry, with custom designs available; handcrafted ornaments; homemade cookies and jams; note cards and postcards; small paintings; handmade chocolates; hand knitted hats and scarves; handmade Christmas stockings and tree skirts; decorative year-round table runners; kitchen staples like oils, vinegars, spices and dips ... and that’s just for starters.

Plus, “Mrs. Claus” herself will read to children from 1-2 p.m. and she’ll have candy canes to share. “Mrs. Claus” will appear courtesy of teacher Karen Sherwood, a member of the Niagara History Center Board and the museum’s “Step Back in Time Players.” She encourages all children ages 4-10 to enjoy her story time as parents and grandparents do their shopping.

An added bonus is free admission to the Erie Canal Discovery Center and exhibits for the day.

As always, the Discovery Center’s Lock, Stock and Barrel Gift Shop has other great gift items like books about the Erie Canal and local communities, kids’ books, Lockport items, Cat’s Meow Village collectibles, historical toys and stocking stuffers. While you’re at the Discovery Center, shop their Holiday Clearance Sale, which will run until Dec. 29 at both this location and the Niagara History Center, 215 Niagara St., Lockport.

Also on Saturday the Niagara History Center will host re-enactor Albert McFadyen as “President Franklin Delano Roosevelt” in a 1 p.m. program recognizing the 73rd Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
