We need donations NOW for:

SILENT AUCTION: Do you have higher-end or higher-interest items, sought after collectibles, gift certificates for your professional services sports or theater tickets? Perhaps you have an extraordinary piece of jewelry, a fancy handbag or a holiday gift basket. We’re looking for items that will encourage spirited bidding in our Silent Auction. Questions to Paula Tucci at pltucci at comcast.net or bring items to Fellowship Hour.
JEWELRY: Our jewelry elves are ready to start polishing, arranging and making your unwanted jewelry a treasure someone else just has to have. Donate jewelry NOW in the marked baskets in the Atrium. Baubles from high-end to inexpensive, from antique to on-trend.

CASH

• to help purchase RAFFLE items

• to help offset KRIS KRINGLE CAFE expenses

You can begin preparing NOW for:

THE COUNTRY STORE Homemade items for such as jams, jellies, preserves, relishes, pickles, rubs, small bags of fudge, cookie or brownie mixes (in an old fashioned Mason jar perhaps?) We love dried soup mixes, your own canned chili or soup.

THE BOUTIQUE loves handcrafted items of all kinds. If you sew, knit, crochet, or create things of paper, wood, ceramics or another medium we’d love to offer your work at the Fair. Do you make jewelry? Baskets? Fine photographs? Stained glass? Doll supplies? Accessories for pets? Ornaments? Potholders?

Keep us in mind

As you are doing your fall clean outs and find items at home you no longer use, set aside the gently used ones for the Fair. For details on what to donate the week of the fair, see the specific items for each table below or email (kriskringlefairinfo@gmail.com).

NOTE: Other than Jewelry, Silent Auction and cash, please save your donations for delivery to the church the week of November 6th.
