This summer, Peddler’s Village, a countryside shopping, dining, lodging, and family entertainment destination in the heart of historic Bucks County, PA, is adding two new shops to its 60-store outdoor retail center. The Cloak and Wand will be opening in early June, and Nissley Vineyards is planning to open in early July.
Initially opened in 2020 in Old Mystic Village in Mystic, Connecticut, where it continues to operate, The Cloak and Wand is a fantasy store dedicated to the wizards and witches of folklore, myth, and literature. In addition to cloaks, wands, brooms, books, enchanted plants, and magical items and apparel, the shop includes a potion bar at which guests can order specially brewed custom potions. The Peddler’s Village location will be its second.
A third-generation family-owned winery, Nissley Vineyards has been growing grapes and producing wine in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania since 1978. Nissley Vineyards offers a full portfolio of wines, ranging from sweet blends to premium barrel-aged varietals—as well as “fun” additions such as canned sparkling wines, wine slushies, and specialty wine. The new Peddler’s Village location will mark Nissley Vineyards’ first presence in Bucks County.
“We couldn’t be happier about the addition of these two inventive and forward-thinking businesses to our lineup of specialty shops in Peddler’s Village,” said Bob McGowan, chief operating officer. “Both The Cloak and Wand and Nissley Vineyards have impressive track records in other locations of drawing first-time visitors. They’re also very adept in providing a high level of customer service and cultivating longtime relationships, which is a very important part of the Peddler’s Village ethos.”
In 2021, Peddler’s Village was named the top attraction in Philadelphia by the Philadelphia Business Journal. The popular destination, which is also known for its year-round events and seasonal festivals, welcomes more than two million visitors per year. In 2021, Peddler’s Village achieved record-breaking retail sales. Retail space is currently almost fully leased; only one small shop space (2,000 square feet) is vacant.
In addition to the new retail experiences, Peddler’s Village this summer will offer a broad array of entertainment and events. In May, Peddler’s Village is presenting Strawberry Month, which will be followed in June by Summer Block Party weekends, in July by Bluegrass and Blueberries Month, and in August by Peach Month. This year, in celebration of its 60th anniversary, the Village will also be presenting a blockbuster summer event: Bucks County Beach Days: Sand Sculptures in the Village, funded in part by Visit Bucks County. This free event, which begins in early June, will feature larger-than-life sand sculptures and play-all-day sandboxes.
Complementing its many on-site events, Peddler’s Village is celebrating its anniversary in 2022 with 60 free giveaways. The giveaway prizes, which range from overnight stays to Village shop baskets, are each valued between $120 and $475 and total more than $12,000. The 60th Anniversary giveaways are free to enter on PeddlersVillage.com.
