“A Visit to Candy Cane Lane” is the theme for the annual Christmas Bazaar being held from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Hopewell United Methodist Church, 20 Blackwell Avenue in Hopewell.
The Bazaar features gifts, crafts and hand-made goodies made by our members and friends.
The Bake Shop includes a variety of breads, cookies, cakes, pies, and pickles, while the Crafter’s Gift Boutique offers handmade crafts, Christmas and holiday decorations and other specialty items.
Bargain hunters will find unique, antique and “already loved” items in Attic Treasures, a popular area of the Bazaar. There is also a Silent Auction, featuring other handiwork, gift baskets, gift certificates, donations from businesses plus unique and unusual items.
Shoppers can take a moment to stop in at the Café to relax with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa and a bagel or donut or enjoy a hot lunch of soup, hot dogs and chili.
The Community Closet, a clothing ministry of the United Methodist Women, will also be open. The Closet is located in upstairs Burton Hall and offers clothing and accessories for all ages. Clothing is offered free of charge and shoppers who are able may make a monetary donation. The Closet also accepts donations of new and gently used clothing during business hours.
The United Methodist Women will also support the Red Bird Mission program by selling products made by craftsmen of the Appalachian Region of Kentucky. This program provides supplemental income to over 150 craft families. There will be a selection of handmade ornaments, toys, jewelry and other items suitable for gift giving.
Capital Health Systems staff will provide free health screenings for blood pressure and blood glucose between the hours of 9 A.M. and Noon, so stop by and be tested.
Proceeds of the Bazaar benefit the ministries of the church, while proceeds from the bake shop will benefit global missions of the United Methodist Women. For more information, please call (609) 771-6081 or visit www.hopewellmethodist.org.
