Another fun NEW exhibit: “Lyme Collects.” Something for everyone: Bill Murphy’s campaign buttons (over 100 of them) and his postcards from around the world with a special LYME- twist; English bone china tea cups, stamps, cookie cutters, buttons, and more rug beaters than you ever knew existed. FUN!
