St. Lukes bazaat

St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Blue Ridge hosts Christmas bazaar December 7

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the North Georgia Mountains, as the Women of St. Luke's Church and regional craftspeople will offer a selection of holiday gifts, decorations and food gifts for the 13th Annual Christmas Bazaar from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on December 7. All proceeds from this event, held in the church social hall, are donated to a variety of organizations that serve the people in the Appalachian region.

"Our kitchen is one of our most popular areas of our bazaar," stated Teresa Wankel, president of The Women of St. Luke's Church.  "Our members make everything fresh including baked goods, Mountain candy and cheese balls. We package items in a variety of sizes perfect for gift giving," she added. Shoppers are treated to samples from the kitchen and free coffee and cider throughout the day. 

Each year over 50 local craftspeople volunteer their time creating beautifully sewn, stitched and knitted items plus an array of hand-painted wooden cabin decor, original art, holiday decorations, pine cone wreaths, jewelry including earrings, necklaces and cork reindeer.

Every year the selection of items is different as craftspeople work at home and in teams to design and create unique products just for this sale. This year's bazaar will feature a limited edition of hand-painted wooden Santas, dog and cat themed holiday decorations, hand painted nativity scenes and cigar box guitars. 

Shoppers can also participate in the silent auction featuring hand sewn Advent calendar, a beautifully crafted woven basket, a handmade scarf and a traditional English dinner prepared by St. Luke's Rector, Victor Morgan.  

The church is located at 7 Ewing Street just a few blocks from downtown Blue Ridge. The bazaar is open to the public with free admission and free parking. The church is handicap accessible.  The bazaar can accept cash and checks only. For more information go towww.stlukesblueridge.org or call (706) 632-8245.
