The Bazaar is Coming!

Compton Heights will hold its first bazaar (at least in a long time) on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors can shop for:
  • Handmade gifts, including scarves and accessories knitted by the Prayer Shawl ministry group.
  • Handmade holiday ornaments for the tree or decorations for the home.
  • Free trade gift items from crafts people around the world.
  • Free trade coffee, tea and chocolate from Equal Exchange
  • Unusual glass, pottery and art items, including some of Lana L's abstracts.
  • Potato baking bags and Gypsy Bags in many new designs.
  • Holiday cookies and breads, home baked.
A light lunch (hot dogs, chili, beverages) will help you ward off hunger while you shop.

The quilt shown above will be awarded to the lucky winner of a drawing to be held at 4 p.m. Tickets are available from church members and on the day of the Bazaar. The quilt, "Let Freedom Shine" is a sofa-sized 54x60 inches; the blocks pieced by members of the Flower Valley Quilting Guild and assembled and machine quilted by a Compton Heights member.

All proceeds will benefit the Compton Cares Accessibility project and be applied to reduction of the final $30,000 remaining on our construction loan. The bazaar will be held on the accessible level of the building!

For more information about the bazaar, please call the church office at 314-771-5071. See you on the 5th!
