St. David’s First Ever Last Chance Bazaar

Remember when church bazaars sold crafts put together by church women who met together weekly for a year to share their gifts of friendship and caring, while preparing hand-made items that would support the good works of the church? St. David of Wales has revived that tradition this year. This bazaar combines those offerings – which of course benefit from strength of the Portland “recycle/reuse” arts community – with the incredible work of many other local artisans.

Come to St. David’s First Ever Last Chance Bazaar at St. David of Wales Episcopal Church, 2800 SE Harrison (just up the hill from Ladd’s Addition), on Saturday, December 19, 2009 from 10am-3 pm, and join the folks who are rethinking Christmas as a time for connecting with family and community. This is an opportunity to find the perfect hand-made gift in a relaxed environment that includes live music throughout the day, and plenty of food treats as well. The Last Chance Bazaar will feature: • Crafts- ornaments, pottery, photographs, cards, jar mixes, knit goods, handmade rugs, decorative pillows, and much more • Music- featuring he Grant High School Royal Blues Alumni Choir (also known as the Remix Blues), led by Doree Jarboe whose family has a long connection with St. David’s, the St. David of Wales Choir, piano and guitar performers • Food – A hot lunch, as well as home-baked and home-canned goods galore will be available throughout the day. • Gift Baskets - build personalized gift baskets from the plenitude of available food and craft items • Kid's Craft Tables- assemble your own ornament, decorate thank you cards, games • Games - Straw Game with prizes and 50/50 Raffle (second prize-gift basket)
