Residents plan for Annual Holiday Bazaar at Luther Acres

Residents plan for Annual Holiday Bazaar at Luther Acres

Residents of Luther Acres, the Luthercare community in Lititz, have been working for months to prepare items for the upcoming Annual Holiday Bazaar. This year, the event will be held on Friday, November 16, and Saturday, November 17. The doors of the Community Room, in the Towne Center at 250 St. Luke Drive, Lititz, will open on Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. On Saturday, sales will begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m. Shoppers will be able to pay for their purchases via cash or check at each section of the Bazaar or take a slip(s) to the credit card cashier to pay for their purchases there.

A new – and much-anticipated – feature this year is the addition of outside vendors! Some of the crafts to be sold by these vendors include pottery, handcrafted cards, fabric wreaths, watercolor art, hand-painted bibs and aprons, piggy banks, Christmas items, heirloom sewing, kaleidoscope photography, coasters, note cards, ornaments, doll clothes and felted hats, wooden signs, specialty ribbons and bows, quilted runners, hand-beaded elegant purses and expertly-crafted woodwork items.

Preparing for the sale takes a lot of planning, organizing and coordinating on behalf of the Luther Acres residents! The Attic Treasures Committee will offer a premium selection of many gently-used household goods and carefully chosen items from Luther Acres residents.

The Jewelry Committee members have been sorting and pricing necklaces, bracelets and earrings to be sold for new users. Donated by residents and their families, these items are extremely varied in appearance and design. And the Baked Goods Committee will be selling home-baked cakes, cookies, pies, candy and other goodies in the space of the Pub, located across the hall on Luther Acres’ “Main Street” of the Towne Center. Baked goods from Luther Acres residents frequently sell out before the end of the Bazaar, so many customers have learned to buy early.        

This year’s “Craft Section” will offer many different crafts made by Luther Acres residents including: knitted hats and scarves for adults and children, as well as totes of different sizes, beautifully-decorated wreaths, ornaments, holiday décor, handmade train sets, and so much more! Be sure not to miss this section.

Please come and support this fund-raising event which enables the Residents’ Council to fulfill its commitment to some very worthwhile causes. The majority of the funds will be directed toward the Luthercare Caring Fund. Please plan to join us for a fun day of shopping and sharing!

In conjunction with the Bazaar, you can enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast in Katy’s Grill in the Towne Center, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, November 17. Hosted by the Friends of Luther Acres, the breakfast features pancakes, sausage and juice for $5.
