Thurman Christmas Bazaar next Saturday

Thurman’s Country Christmas Bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30. The show and sale will feature handmade items by area crafters, artisans, bakers and farmers. Shoppers will find pure Thurman maple products, one-of-a-kind Adirondack rustic miniatures, hand-knitted mittens and sweaters, colorful kitchen accessories, fleece throws, unique jewelry items, stained glass stepping stones, fabric handbags, books by local authors and more.

Don’t miss the bakery items for sale, or the well-known local duo who offer knick-knacks, glassware and linens. One vendor will sell hand-crafted items to benefit the Philanthropic Educational Organization, an international group that supports women’s educational needs through scholarships, grants and loans.

You won’t want to miss this day of fun, friendship and great shopping.

Cheryl Kenyon is organizing the event, and she reminds people that vendor space has filled up rather quickly and there are only a few spaces left. The fee for reserving a spot is $10. For details, you can reach Cheryl at 623-9718.

Gifts for neighbors home-bound, alone

Vendor fees from the Thurman Country Christmas Bazaar help fund Thurman’s annual community Christmas Basket project, which makes sure that elderly folks living alone are remembered during the holidays with a thoughtful gift from their neighbors. Donations are now being sought for the annual local program that provides Christmas baskets for the home-bound. Items that were donated last year included canned soup, fruit and vegetables, baked goods, gift cards and handmade items.
