About the event

Join Maine Micro Artisans as we present an Old Fashioned Yankee Swap! This fun activity is not only a great way to celebrate, meet new people and enjoy the holiday season, but it supports our talented makers. Your ticket includes your gift! We'll gather together, share smiles, laughs and swap, swap and swap some more! 

If you're not familiar with a how this works here are the rules! 

In Yankee Swap, each participant brings a wrapped, unmarked gift and places it in a designated area. For this swap your ticket covers the cost of a handmade gift wrapped up and ready for the swap. Just bring you and your sense of adventure. 

Guests are given numbers as they arrive!

The person who receives the number 1 will pick a gift from the pile and open it for all to see (or models it, reads it, or demos it). During the selection of a wrapped gift, the participant may visually inspect the gifts, pick them up and/or gently shake them.

The person who receives number 2 then chooses a gift and opens it, and then must decide whether to keep it or swap it for the first player’s gift. Each person in order then gets to select a present, open it and decide whether to keep it or swap it for any other gift someone has already opened.

Opening of gifts and swapping takes place until all the presents have been chosen. Finally, the person who picked first gets to choose from all the gifts or keep what they have already received. In the end, the gift you are holding is the gift you take home.
