Countdown to Christmas: Lambert Castle

A few weeks ago I went with my neighbor Kim to the Holiday House Boutique at Lambert Castle in Paterson. This holiday fundraiser for the Passaic County Historical Society is a big favoriite. The castle is decorated festively with craft items for sale. Each year they decorate the rooms differently. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

Built in 1892, this impressive landmark is made of sandstone and granite quarried from the surrounding hillsides. It belonged to Paterson’s silk baron, Catholina Lambert. It’s an interesting story, and if you’re interested you can read more about the castle and its history here.

I was a good girl and didn’t spend too much money. I bought a unique bracelet and this adorable hand-stitched felt sheepie ornament. I thought it would make a good knitting totem.
