The St. James’ Bazaar has been a two-day tradition in the community for over 60 years. 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 & Petal Alley (assorted ornaments, wreaths, arrangements, and a variety of holiday decorations); One Fine Yarn (a large selection of knitted, crocheted, and sewn items); Unique Gifts (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).
The White Elephant Room was added in 2017. It offers a large variety of used items at very reasonable prices. 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 beginning in late September after church services on Sundays and in the Parish Office during weekday office hours.
