Thomasville Christmas Bazaar and Bake Sale

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

The Thomasville Christmas Bazaar Bake Sale will be held Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Community Center and will feature many items for early Christmas shopping, as well to raise funds for the upkeep of the facility.

Some of the fantastic items and features for patrons to enjoy during this delightful holiday event include handcrafted items and flea market finds. In addition to a variety of displayed items featured in the “Bargain Room.”

Handcrafted items include quilts, ponytail hats, concrete leaf casts, Christmas and fall centerpieces, wreaths, porch arrangements, crocheted items, concrete leaf casts, placemats and machine embroidered dish towels.

In the Bargain Room, items will be priced for $1 or a whole box of items for $1. There will also be a book sale with a bag of books costing $2.

After working up an appetite shopping, patrons will have the opportunity to sit and enjoy a bowl of chili, dessert and beverage or take home a baked item, reminiscent of the former Rivers Edge Fish and Grill restaurant.

“The 2017 Bazaar was successful in bringing together the community of friends and neighbors near and far, as well as raising funds to help repair damage from the 2017 flood. As the community center moves forward to continue renovations and repairs, we invite all to join in this day of festivity,” was stated in a press release.

A new item to purchase this year will be a Thomasville Christmas card, featuring a street scene from 1939, a set of note cards including photos of residents from Thomasville’s history, as well as sketches on note cards with five Thomasville icons by Kim Malone, daughter of long-time residents Claude and Doris Malone. There will be a drawing for a quilted couch through featuring sketches of Thomasville, which will be by donation.

Donations will be accepted up until the week of the Bazaar, however, the earlier they are received the better. Arrangements can be made for a drop off or pick up of items to be donated.
