November 13 isn’t just the opening day of pheasant season this year. It’s also the day for people to hunt for old favorites and new treats at the annual Stafford United Methodist Women’s annual bazaar. While the date has changed, the items shoppers have come to expect will continue to be part of the event, which will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the church basement.
This is the second year the Stafford UMW’s bazaar will be on a Saturday. Though it’s a new date, bazaar favorites continue to be offered. Frozen apple pies will be available for purchase, just in time to use for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Pints of UMW cinnamon apple butter have been jarred and are ready for use on holiday tables or to give as gifts to family members, teachers and friends. Packaged food will be available for sale, including cookies, quick breads, yeast breads, snack mixes and more.
Chicken and noodle soup will be offered in two ways – by the bowl on bazaar day or in quart jars to take home for another meal. The Food Bar opens at 9 a.m. with homemade cinnamon rolls and coffee cakes. Lunch items will include chicken and noodles, ham and beans and vegetable soup. Cheese spread and ham sandwiches and homemade pies will round out the menu.
The Treasure Room features quality used merchandise at reasonable prices, including decorative pieces, Christmas and holiday items, kitchenware and linens. Gently used clothing for children and adults is available in the clothing room for just $4 a sack.
The UMW quilt features a Christian Cross pattern and is machine-quilted. Tickets are available for a $1 donation or six tickets for $5. The drawing will be at 2 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 13.
Monies raised during the bazaar go to support mission projects in the community and beyond.
