‘Tis the season…for the Simple Gifts Bazaar

As the holiday season approaches, it is time again for the Annual Simple Gifts Bazaar at Friends Memorial Church. We invite the public to join us on Saturday, November 5th for our large indoor bazaar featuring many handmade arts and crafts, created by talented local artisans to be perfect gifts for you and your family. You will be sure to enjoy a diverse array of skilled local vendors, ready to help you find all the gifts you need. Admission and parking at the Bazaar are free to everyone.

In addition to our many vendors, the Simple Gifts Bazaar will feature lots of unique and traditional offerings, such as a Silent Auction for a handcrafted Queen Size Quilt pieced by the Quaker Women’s Circle and quilted by Diana Taylor of Yesterday’s Charm - Tomorrow’s Treasures. Longtime Bazaar shoppers will find a great mix of the familiar along with lots of exciting new things to explore. Returning to the Simple Gifts Bazaar this year are our Vintage Shop, Holiday Shop, Pet Shop, and Odds & Ends Shop. New to our Bazaar this year is the Boutique, featuring gently used clothing and accessories, and the Cozy Corner, where you can purchase soft, cuddly stuffed animals. Shoppers are also sure to enjoy the homemade treats for sale in the Quaker Bakery, including homemade noodles, vegetable soup, meat loaves, and lasagna. Our mix-n-match Cookie Crawl is a fun way to buy only the cookies that you love the most, in the amounts that you want, and will delight your family and friends.

A delicious, hot breakfast and a hearty Fall hot meal for lunch will be available to all shoppers for a free will offering so you can spend your day with us. Please join us from 8 a.m.–2 p.m., on Saturday, November 5th, at the Simple Gifts Bazaar, held at Friends Memorial Church, located at 418 West Adams Street in the Old West End of Downtown Muncie, and get a good headstart on your holiday shopping while enjoying yourself with friends. Bring the whole crew and shop ‘til you drop!
