It’s happening! Save the date: November 13, 2021.
All Saints leadership team and Bazaar Coordinators (Arleane and Jeff) are pleased to announce the 2021 Bazaar will be held on Saturday November 13th (hours of opening tbc).
Exact details for this signature parish event will be forthcoming, as our planning is evolving to match provincial and Diocesan reopening parameters.
We can tell you the tea room will be replaced with a takeaway model. At the start of their visit, shoppers can order a lovely soup & biscuit combo to be collected at check-out. We’re also investigating moving the silent auction to an online platform that can run throughout Bazaar week and allow people to peruse and bid on items online.
We’ll also have some All Saints swag for sale/order, as well as the usual excellent inventory as in previous years: baked goods, knitted items, jams & jellies, thrifted jewellery, and more.
We have some needs, too. We’re looking for
- volunteer(s) to take the lead on advertising and signage for the event
- volunteer(s) to help facilitate the tech end of the online auction
- donations of good quality, gently used items (clothing excluded) for the ‘classic treasures’ section
- giftcards, one-of-a-kind arts & crafts creations, and new or purchased items for the silent auction
Also, starting now, the St Margaret’s Guild welcomes donations of new or cleaned jam-size mason jars (i.e., decorative/quilted wide-mouth 250ml & 125ml). So, if you’ve finishd up your peper jelly and lemon curd and have been hanging on to the jars, no’s the time to bring them to chruch
Donations can be delivered to the church during the Deacon’s Cupboard Foodbank opening hours.
If you have questions about the Bazaar, contact Arleane or Jeff by email.
