From the First United Methodist Church of Apopka
The First United Methodist Church Apopka Ladies are busy putting the final touches to all the creative handmade items to be sold at the annual Christmas Bazaar in the fellowship hall at the church , 201 S. Park Avenue, Apopka, FL on November 11th from 8:30 am to 3:00 p.m. The ladies meet every Monday in the Bazaar room all day long, all year long.
Some ladies work at home and bring in exquisite, one of a kind items. Members of the church keep supplies of fabrics, ribbons, buttons, unused craft kits, etc. coming to the room.
On Monday, some of the ladies were randomly asked “how they felt about the bazaar”. Here are some of the comments: “most fun classroom I’ve been in”, “it is a mood elevator”, “I enjoy the smell and the people”, “it is better therapy than tranquilizers, you get lost in the learning”, flabbergasted that such a small group of women can put on such a show year after year”, “during the last few days, it gets very busy and people can get cranky but the Lord always pulls us through”.
You can start the day off with hot apple fritters and coffee. Lunch will be served. This year’s theme is “The Christmas Marketplace”. What will you find in this special store-Christmas ornaments, scarves, blankets, tree skirts, jewelry, Blue Jean aprons, Santa’s shotgun shell angels, table arrangements and wreaths to fit all your Christmas needs.
The Silent Auction area will have a variety of items to bid on. An upscale Rummage area will have everything from furniture to children’s books. A handmade Queen/King Quilt, pillow shams and three decorative pillows, a dish garden, gift basket and gift cards will be raffled. Tickets are $1.00 each. All monies from raffle will go to the Methodist children’s home.
