The 14th annual Holiday Bazaar, sponsored by the St. James Women’s Guild, will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9-10, in the parish Memorial Center, 1275 B St. in Davis. Entry is free and there is ample parking at the site.

Artisans from throughout the Central Valley will sell quilts, soap, woodworking items, note cards, paintings, photography, knitted and crocheted items, fashion accessories and doll clothes. Representatives of commercial products also will be present.

Women of the guild will sell home-baked holiday goods such as pies and cookie bars, and persimmon jam will be featured once again.

Drawings will be held for an Apple iPad and items donated by the vendors. The cafe will be open and staffed by the Hispanic Choir ministry all day Saturday and the Men’s Group with its popular pancake breakfast on Sunday morning.

All proceeds from vendor rentals, ticket sales and baked good sales are donated by the guild to parish and community charities that benefit women and children.

During the holiday season, the guild also will bake and donate pies to the International House Thanksgiving Dinner, sponsor a family for STEAC, ring the bell for the Salvation Army, and prepare lunch and dinner for the homeless guests of the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter.

In February, they will maintain the tradition of Daffodil Days for the parish although the American Cancer Society has discontinued its sponsorship of the program. Shut-ins and seriously ill women of the parish have benefited immensely from this small but cheery acknowledgement of their situation and look forward to the delivery of the daffodils each year. The guild will provide the flowers and drivers and the parish will offer a list of suggested beneficiaries.

The bazaar is fully booked with vendors, but for other information, email lwestergaard@sbcglobal.net.
