’tis the season for Krampus and Mummers!
Around this time of year you hear a whole lot about Santa, but not as much about Krampus, the creature from folklore that deals with the naughty children at Christmas time. Well The Resource Exchange has kept this tradition alive by providing reclaimed materials for a couple Philly Krampus events! Last year, Krampus made an appearance in the Mummer's Parade, sporting fur that The Resource Exchange salvaged from the set of a major motion picture. The mummers are: Ruthie Schanbacher, Dana Henry, and Ellen Bonett. Masks made by Kevin Schanbacher and photos taken by Allison Ostertag. The mummer group is the Vaudevillains. And yesterday Krampuslauf, a colorful and family friendly celebration of Krampus, happened at Liberty Lands Park. Some of our customers were able to use reclaimed materials they found in the store to make these colorful lanterns for the evening celebration march around Northern Liberties.
