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 9th 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 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, holiday towels, table arrangements, and wreaths to fit all your Christmas needs.
The Silent Auction area will have a variety of items to bid on-on very special item is a beautiful dollhouse (decorated and furnished by the Susan Bornmann and her committee).
An upscale Rummage area will have everything from furniture to children’s books.
A handmade Queen/King Quilt, Beef O’Bradys’s gift certificates, gift baskets and a dish garden will be raffled. Tickets are $1.00 each. All monies from raffle will go to the Methodist children’s home.
Stop by and find items to get your Christmas shopping off to a good start. For further information, call 407-889-2628 or the church office 407-886-3421.
