Avoid supply chain shopping snafus by gifting treats and unique items from the St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Holiday Bazaar & Marketplace, Friday-Saturday, Nov. 19-20.
Proceeds benefit the church’s missions and ministries in the greater Salisbury community.
The online auction is open now (stpeterschurch.net/holiday-bazaar) and features 38 bountiful gift baskets with handmade crafts, wines, lasagna dinner, gift certificates, pet treats, Christmas morning brunch, firewood …”something for everyone in all price ranges, perfect for giving or treating yourself,” said Elizabeth Phillips of the Bazaar Committee.
All will be available online until bidding ends Friday, Nov. 19, at 10 p.m.
Unique items include design time with Becker Morgan, the award-winning architectural firm, and original works by artists such as Abbi Custis.
One particularly fun gift is a four-ticket package to the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., for an 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, performance of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas -- The Musical.”
The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heartwarming holiday classic, narrated by Max the Dog. Some 85-minutes long, The New York Times calls the show, “100 times better than any holiday story.”
During Third Friday, Nov. 19, with the Downtown Christmas tree lighting ceremony, Pete’s Café, in the St. Peter's Parish Hall, is open from 5 to 8 p.m. with hot dogs, burgers and King Boy’s oyster fritters, freshly made in the church kitchen.
King Boy’s has been frying fritters for area churches and nonprofits for 50 years, using a recipe handed down through three generations. Fritters will be available until sold out.
The café also will be open that Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is offering St. Peter’s famous carryouts of homemade chili, chicken salad and crab soup -- “tasty hearty meals, keeping Mom out of the kitchen to have more fun with family,” said Mary Phillips of the Bazaar Committee. Pre-order from stpeterschurch.net website.
During these same times, the Holiday Marketplace in the Parish Hall will feature a variety of homemade baked goods, accents for the house, other unique gifts, wreaths and more. “Christmas shop here — or online, from your armchair at home,“ added Lynne Peverley, of the Bazaar Committee.
The church is located at 115 St. Peter’s Street. For more information about the bazaar, visit stpeterschurch.net/holiday-bazaar or call 410-742-5118.
