45th Annual Christmas Bazaar this Saturday, hosted by the First United Methodist Church of Apopka Ladies

Posted

The First United Methodist Church of Apopka Ladies are busy putting the final touches on all the creative handmade items to be sold at the 45th Annual Christmas Bazaar. This engaging event will take place in the fellowship hall at the church, located on 201 S. Park Avenue, Apopka, FL on November 13th from 8:30 am to 3:00 p.m.  You won't want to miss it.

The ladies have been meeting every Monday in the "Bazaar" room all day long, all year long.  Some ladies have worked from home, but always bring in exquisite, “one of a kind” items.

The whole church rallies around their creativity, with members of the church keeping supplies such as fabrics, ribbons, buttons, and unused craft kits steadily coming to their crafting room.  It's amazing how scraps of this and that turn into cheery creations perfect for Christmas decorations and gifts.    

On Monday, some of the ladies were asked how they felt about the upcoming bazaar. Here are some of the comments they shared: 

  • "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 on year after year"
  • "during the last few days, it gets very busy and people can get cranky but the Lord always pulls us through".           

And just when thought this was all about gifts and decorations - it gets better! Come hungry so you can start the day off with apple fritters and coffee... and lunch will be served as well. Shopping and eating  and community together - it's the start of a great Christmas experience.  

This year's theme is “The Family Christmas” - so bring your family, meet other families, shop for your family home and loved ones, and start the holidays with cheer and new possibilities.
