New in the Gift Shop—Handmade Lavender-Filled Sachets!

Volunteers at the Joel Lane Museum House have just produced gorgeous handmade lavender-filled sachets. Using old lace and linens donated by the local Colonial Dames chapter, the ladies have produced a wide assortment of fragrant sachets just in time for holiday gift giving. The lavendar was locally grown, and the sachets are wrapped in clear cellophane bags and are tied with a lavendar bow and descriptive card. Each one is unique, so let us choose for you.

What visitors say

Thank you for the excellent tour of the Joel Lane House.  I learned a lot about the history of Raleigh as well as the Joel Lane House.  I learned how harsh conditions were back then and how we take for granted things they did not have back then.  The structure of houses has really changed a lot since the Joel Lane House was built.
