Shop all things Beacon Blankets while visiting the Museum’s exhibit about the textile mill in Swannanoa that was once the largest in the world!

Jerry and Kathy Brownstein will be signing and selling copies of their book, “Beacon Blankets Make Warm Friends,” which relates the history of the company and highlights their collectible blankets, robes, and other wares.

Adore Designs will also be in the Museum selling fashions made from vintage and reproduction Beacon Blankets.

And, we’ll have reproduction Beacon Blankets for sale in up to 10 different vintage patterns.

Best of all, part of the proceeds from your purchase goes to support the non-profit Swannanoa Valley Museum!
