“I had a lot of fun and got some neat presents for mom and dad!”
Save money, support local crafts people, and find some fun, unique gifts for the holidays!
The Annual Gardenview Holiday Bazaar and Silent Auction is the Saturday before Thanksgiving. It features local artisans with hand made jewelry, locally made toys, knitted crafts, and other fabulous gifts for the holiday season.
When you visit the bazaar on Saturday, November 21st from 9am to 3pm you will be treated to one of the most family friendly holiday shopping and entertainment events of the season.
Filling the community room of Hillcrest Chapel (click here for map and directions) are tables dedicated to local businesses and crafts people. You are guaranteed to find gift ideas here that will be sure to delight your favorite friends and relatives.
Many more local businesses and generous members of the community have contributed a wide range of gifts for this year’s silent auction. The starting bids for these exclusive items begin at just a few dollars.
If you would like to support this year’s bazaar with your own gift for the silent auction you can click this link and complete the form.
The Gardenview Bazaar features a raffle just for the kids! Each child gets their own raffle tickets to “spend” on any of the items on the kid’s raffle table. At a few minutes before 3pm a ticket will be chosen at random for each prize. The child does not need to be present to win, as the parents will be contacted with instructions on how to claim their gift.
If you would like to contribute an item to the kid’s raffle please click here and let us know!
Throughout the day you will be entertained by local performers ranging from instrumentals to group performances to solo vocalists.
As with any good school fundraiser, you will experience some of the best baked goods lovingly crafted by the supportive parents of Gardenview Montessori Pre-School and Kindergarten. Typically you will find choices that include gluten and nut free goodies as well as traditionally baked breads and cookies.
Activities For The Kids
All during the bazaar kids will have craft tables set up to create their own drawings, necklaces and other imaginative items. This gives kids a chance to make their own special treasures to keep or give to a favorite person.
The kids will also find games they can play to win other small prizes.
