AUBURN, Mass. – The Auburn Junior Woman’s Club wants residents and vendors to come to its first annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 24, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at North American Martyrs Church.
“Hopefully after people are done with Black Friday shopping, they’ll come check us out for some more holiday shopping,” said Jeanne Dee, president of the Auburn Junior Woman’s Club. “It’s going to be a holiday atmosphere, festive with music and food.
“Hopefully it’s a success and the town will support us,” she added. “There’ll be jewelry, candy, knitted items, floral arrangements and much more.”
The group is looking for crafters, vendors and anyone interested in selling “attic treasures.”
“We’re looking for people to rent a space,” Dee said. “It’s a reasonable way of selling used items that are in good condition. Also, many fairs cost more than this for vendors.”
Table spaces are 8-feet square and cost $15; and spaces with tables are $20. Space is limited and reservations are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to reserve a space is Nov. 9.
An apple pie bake-off will also be held. The pies will be judged on taste and appearance, and they should be brought in disposable pans by 10:30 a.m. The contest will start at 11 a.m. It costs $5 per pie entry. Winners will receive cash prizes.
In addition, it costs $1 to attend the bazaar or attendees can donate a nonperishable food item. Proceeds will be used to raise money and collect food for Kateri's Kitchen, a local food pantry at North American Martyrs Church.
There will also be a raffle and bake sale, with proceeds benefiting the Auburn Junior Woman’s Club.
Interested vendors, crafters, sellers and bakers should contact Kerrie at 508-799-6565 or email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
