As we move towards the annual All Saints Bazaar, we are in need of a little help:
First, we are always looking for volunteers. Peruse the Bazaar 2021 promotional post to see where you might fit in, or talk to Jeff or Arleane, your Bazaar 2020-2021 Coordinators. We could definitely use some person-power in the week prior to the Bazaar (Nov 13) to help move tables and inventory into position.
We would also welcome Bazaar contributions of
- preserving jars (125ml, 250ml, and 500ml; no quart sizes please)
- new/gently used items for the classic treasures section (vintage and secondhand goods)
- Christmas decor (take a peak in your stored decorations now and see what doesn’t sparkle for you)
- new or gently loved children’s toys and books
- offers of talents & services, retail gift cards or packages, new/nearly new products, all suitable for silent auction
Donated goods can be dropped off at the church (parking lot entrance) during foodbank hours, or call the office to arrange delivery.
A Word about the Silent Auction: Please contact Linda Finigan if you are able to contribute new/nearly new merchandise, offers of talents & services, or retail gift cards. This years auction will be online. Details forthcoming.
Right now, we are seeking a charming and outgoing individual or two, who would be willing to approach local businesses and franchises to invite donations. A letter of introduction will be provided.
And for those of you who have almost two-years of pent-up baking energy, get ready to unleash it. The Bazaar Bake Table does brisk business, but it depends on the homebaking of our membership. Pies, cookies, tarts of all kinds (but butter tarts especially) and quick breads such as carrot, cranberry, and banana loaves, are always big sellers. (Note: cupcakes, peanut brittle, fudge do not sell very well.) Contact Sandy Butler to commit to donating some baked treats.
