St. Mary's event is area's largest bazaar

MIDDLEBURY From Christmas decorations to knit goods to homemade goodies, it all comes together at Saint Marys Church in Middlebury on Nov. 1 from 9 to 4. Thrifty Christmas shoppers will find hand-knit clothing; candles; table runners, placemats, aprons and pot holders; quilts and afghans, crafts, original art, woodcraft items and many more to fill out their Christmas lists... and there's a large-container raffle, too. Getting ready for Thanksgiving will be easier with a visit to the Food Fair tables, with breads, candies, cookies, pies and more. Catholic Daughters, Court Assumption, will add nostalgia and further savings to the parish bazaar mix with their Treasure Chest: a wealth of waiting-for-a-new-home pre-owned wonders. No bazaar would be complete without a raffle and the exquisite Grand Prize for this one is Sunflower Chorus, a framed original oil painting, by local artist and St. Marys art teacher Eileen Gombosi, an accomplished and established professional. Each ticket includes the chance to win $100 gift certificates at Autumn Gold, Geiger of Austria and, of course, Gregs Meat (and everything else) Market. The Parish is grateful for these local businesses support. Raffle tickets are 6 for $5 or a dollar apiece, so go for the bargain price and a better chance to win! Tickets will be available at the Bazaar on the 1st and currently at Saint Marys Rectory (326 College St.); Saint Mary's School (86 Shannon St.); Gregs Market (3 Elm St.); Thread Connections (Route 7 South at Creek Road); and Pratts Store (2504 Route 22A, Bridport). The drawing will be held on Nov. 2 and winners need not be in attendance.
