The St. James’ Bazaar is a tradition in the community that has been held for over 60 years. The latest two-day event was held Friday-Saturday, November 2-3, 2018. The 2019 bazaar is scheduled for November 1-2.
The “Bazaar Ladies” meet on Tuesday mornings throughout the year to make the many items sold in the shops. They are a very creative group who look forward each week to spending time together. They believe the fellowship they share is a very important part of the success of the Bazaar.
The Bazaar consists of four rooms of handcrafted items: The Christmas Shop (assorted ornaments, wreaths, arrangements, and a variety of holiday decorations); One Fine Yarn (a large selection of knitted, crocheted, and sewn items); Craftily Yours (gift baskets, cross-stitch, handcrafted jewelry, and much more); ABC Shop (unique items for children, knitted and crocheted afghans, sweaters, hats, books, and stuffed animals). There is also our famous Bake Shop. It has everything for the sweet tooth — pies, cakes, cookies, breads, preserves, and candy. This is the tastiest corner of the Bazaar.
A Turkey Dinner is held on Saturday with seatings at 4:00 PM, 5:30 PM, and 7:00 PM — takeout is also available. Tickets for the Turkey Dinner are sold in advance (cash, check, credit/debit cards) beginning in late September after church services on Sundays, and in the Parish Office during weekday office hours.
