The 26th annual Trinity Church St. Nicholas Bazaar will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec.2, at the church on 33 Mercer Street in downtown Princeton.
Trinity parishioners have cut English and American boxwood to be made into topiaries and centerpieces. More than 70 fragrant balsam wreaths from Maine have been decorated. The bazaar will feature a cookie walk and bake sale, “parish originals” featuring more than 50 handmade gifts, including shoulder bags, placemats, and hand knits. New this year are cashmere mittens made for children and adults, with a variety of linings and colors. The Trinity Strings musicians will perform and lunch will be served.
A silent auction will feature ladies’ winter coats by Orvis and Vera Wang, pottery from Williams- Sonoma, among other items. Gently-used, ladies’ holiday clothing and evening wear for Christmas and New Year’s Eve will fill another room. A black English tea blended for Trinity in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, makes an encore appearance. Vendors include Bunnyknits, Christmas Books, Fresh-cut Holly, Margaret Woo Silver Jewelry, Seeds to Sew, Woolen Wonders, and more.
Children can shop for family presents inside Junior Shoppers, where adults are not allowed, but elves will offer gift advice. St. Nick himself will greet your family and pose for selfies. For more information, visit trinityprinceton.org or call 609-924-2277.
