Annual Christmas Bazaar approaching
Adirondack Journal readers who are thinking of Christmas and trying to get ahead of last minute purchases can plan on attending an upcoming hometown holiday sale. The annual Country Christmas Bazaar Saturday Nov. 28 at the Thurman Town Hall will have many unique yet affordable gifts on their sale tables.
To be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the sale features a wide array of crafts and gift items for sale by local artisans and vendors. There will also be food and snacks available through out the day.
A sneak preview of the sale shows home-knit mittens, crocheted items, Christmas tree decorations, knickknacks, wooden items, afghans, fleece items and so much more. Door prizes will be awarded and the sale benefits the local Christmas Basket Fund. Event organizers hope to see you there.
Also in time for Christmas, I still have a few copies left of the Adirondack Gold book books by local author Perky Granger, both book No. 1 and No. 2 in the series. Give me a call at 623-2580 if you want one reserved for your family gift-giving.
