New Fall Shopping Guide from the Museum Store

A new season is fast approaching! These seasonal products from the Museum Store will get you in the fall spirit in no time.

Cozy Up

Nothing indicates the changing of seasons more than switching out your candles for new scents. The Museum Store has a wide variety of candles from local businesses. Find the scent that you want to burn all season long! Add the scent and warmth of freshly-brewed pumpkin or chai tea, and your house will be an autumn escape.

Whether you drink tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, we don’t judge – as long as you enjoy your drink in a fun, artsy mug! These mugs are minimalist but still fun, referencing famous artists and their well-known features.

Stay protected from the incoming chill with a new pair of socks. Choose from classic, organic pairs made by zkano or wacky, art-inspired ones as appropriate museum souvenirs. These socks come in all patterns and are perfect for cushioning and insulating your rainboots.

After-School Activities

Learn about Alabama history while assembling a puzzle or playing with cards. Gee’s Bend residents gained national attention for their quilts during the Civil Rights Movement. The quilts have been displayed in museum exhibitions across the country. This puzzle at the Museum Store includes many of the prominent quiltmakers and their creations.

Support local authors and businesses while cozying up with your next read. Get into the spooky spirit with a mystery novel from Georgina Cross, a local author, or check a trending must-read off your list with this season’s picks from the Snail on the Wall, Huntsville’s online indie bookstore. The Snail on the Wall deliver fresh picks to the Museum Store each season, so there is always something new to discover.

Build your own toy with these construction toy kits. Choose between fun robots, vehicles, tools and more. Follow the instructions to match the design on the box, or make something else up. The possibilities are endless! Get creative and refine your motor skills at the same time.

Take some time to send a postcard to your loved ones that you have not seen recently. Life gets busy, but it is always a treat to hear from friends and family. These postcards feature printed designs on a flat piece of wood. They are colorful but classy and will be a cute decoration for the recipient.

Make friends with the little residents of your backyard with this bird feeder. The feeder is shaped like an acorn, with a textured cap and a mesh body to allow access for the birds. Hang it from a tree in your yard or a post on your porch and watch as the birds come by for a visit. If you are an avid birdwatcher, see how many you can identify!
