PRINCETON-The 25th Annual Trinity Church St. Nicholas Bazaar is on Saturday, Dec. 3rd, from 9am – 2 pm, at 33 Mercer Street.
What started out as a church fair in one room has grown into a Christmas holiday ritual for two generations of families in Princeton and beyond. But change in life is certain, and St. Nick shoppers upon arrival will notice that there is only one gingerbread house on display by Trinity parishioner Amy Worthington, not fifteen or twenty. Ms. Worthington’s talent is now a silent auction item; if you are the highest bidder, she will come to your house and teach your family and friends how to make and decorate several styles of gingerbread houses.
Bidding begins at 9am and ends at 12:45pm. Other Silent Auction auction items show off labels by Dolce and Gabbana, Max Mara, and even William Shakespeare.
Trinity parishioners have cut their English and American boxwood and holly for sale, and to be made into topiaries, centerpieces and balsam wreaths. There is a cookie walk and bake sale, Christmas books, Gourmet-to-Go and your choice of English Trifle, in bowl size, fruit and flavor. A black English tea blended for Trinity in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, features a sketch of the church on the gold package.
New and returning vendors are Bunnyknits for infants, children & ladies; Christmas Books, French lavender sachets, Jester Farm Alpaca Yarn products, Margaret Woo Jewelry, Nancy Kingston Scarves, Pet Portraits, Plank Art Designs, Seeds to Sew and Woolen Wonders.
Children can shop for family presents inside Junior Shoppers, where adults are not allowed, but elves offer gift advice. St. Nick himself will greet your family and pose for selfies. Lunch is available. For more information, visit trinityprinceton.org or call 609-924-2277.
