Boone United Methodist Church's annual Fall Bazaar
"The event has become so popular during the past 29 years that now thousands attend, in search of hidden treasures and bargains, good food and fellowship," a church spokesman said.
Located at 471 New Market Blvd., directly behind the New Market Shopping Center, the bazaar will be from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday.
Featured items will include furniture, computers and electronics, sports equipment, clothing of all kinds, handmade crafts, Christmas items, jams and jellies, baked goods, new and previewed books and videos, yard sale items, as well as "down home" country cooking.
An Old Fashion Country Breakfast will be served on Friday morning and homemade lasagna will available for lunch. Sweet rolls and muffins will be served on Saturday morning. A silent auction featuring jewelry, china, silver and many items from local businesses will accept bids on Friday, Sept. 20, until 6 p.m.
The bazaar is one of the church's main events, involving more than 500 volunteers of all ages -- 3 to 102 -- serving more than 6,000 hours. The event benefits the church building fund and local missions.
"The bazaar has evolved into one of the most fun and effective ways of recycling used furniture and other items. This is a major green event of the High Country," the spokesman said.For more information, call (828) 264-6090 or visit http://www.booneumc.org.
