Turkey Day Friends

Turkeys, pumpkins and pilgrims oh my! This year at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we would like to share with you some of our favorite harvest collectibles, as well as a few new Thanksgiving Day friends. All of these friendly harvest themed figurines and sculptures make the perfect accents for your big holiday feast. Many of the collectibles featured here are similar to other products we carry for the harvest season. If there is something you don’t see here that you’re looking for, please click here for a complete listing of all our Fall Harvest items!

Let’s begin with our Turkey on Pumpkins, a new addition to the Williraye Studio collection here at Sturbridge. A whimsical turkey carrying an acorn and two ears of corn is joined by a small baby turkey peaking out behind a pumpkin and gourd. Next is a customer favorite, our Tom & Goody Gobbler, featured here to the left. These collectibles from renown folk artist Lori Mitchell, feature a pilgrim couple complete with rosy red cheeks and traditional blue and white pilgrim attire. They are having a grand time pulling on the reigns of their beautiful, multicolored turkeys.

Last but not least, is another Williraye Studio must have: our Race to the Feast collectible. Sporting a nice zucchini car, this couple is all smiles as they head to their first Thanksgiving. Also in tow are a couple of pumpkins and an ear of corn to share with their friends. Don’t you want these cute collectibles at your feast this year?


One lovely way to decorate for any holiday is always to think about the small details. Our harvest themed Woolys are great to display on a mantle or side table, but are also perfect hostess or teacher gifts this season. Our Harvest Time Wooly who pushes a wheel barrel of pumpkins and hay in from the farm, is seen here to the right.

Next is the School Days Wooly, who is all ready for school with his books and an apple for the teacher. Lastly, our Splitting Wood Wooly is chopping wood to bring inside and get warm by a cozy fire. All of our Woolys are handcrafted of 100% wool and made right here in the USA.



Myles Pilgrim Soft Sculpture


New for this season, is our larger Pilgrim couple, Myles and Prudence. Dressed in an authentic replication of an original pilgrim outfit, Myles will bring a smile to all your guests this upcoming season. Pictured to the right, he is constructed of a soft body, velvet clothing and many hand painted details. Myles is complete with brass buckles on his hat and shoes. He carries a rustic colored, button eyed turkey to the dinner table to share with his friend Prudence.

Prudence Pilgrim Soft Sculpture Patient Prudence is delighted to bring her harvested bright orange pumpkin to dinner this year! Seen here to the left, she is dressed as the original pilgrims were in 1620, when they arrived to the new world. Wearing a faux lace apron atop her velvet dress, she also has intricate stitching on her collar and sleeves. These delicate details are highlighted by the many hand painted features on her body and the pumpkin.


We hope that you will welcome any of these Thanksgiving collectibles into your home this coming November, as they will gladly add to your decor for the big day and will also make good company for you, your family and friends.
