Good fellowship, good food, and good shopping
at annual craft bazaar….WITH SLIDE SHOW

Bazaar chairperson

More than 450 visitors came to the Hatteras United Methodist Women’s annual craft bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 6.

The Hatteras Village Civic Center was transformed into a shopper’s heaven with the help of Belinda Willis from Lee Robinson General Store. There were various vendors selling their goods, and many homemade craft items were displayed.

There was also a silent auction for several donated items -- a handmade stitch-by-stitch baby quilt, lighted Christmas houses, and a family of ducks made of wood.

“Faye’s Good Life Café” served homemade Brunswick stew and corn bread muffins, made by Hatteras village women, D.M. Gray’s chili, and Cliff’s grilled hot dogs. Frisco Sandwich Shop donated homemade chips, and ice cream with all the fixings was available for those with a sweet tooth.

Visitors were able to sample many homemade items from “Miss Dee’s Pantry,” which was filled with homemade sweet pickles, squash relish, roasted pecans, chunky apple butter, fig preserves, poppy seed dressing, fresh rosemary, honey butter, cheese spreads, sweet and tangy mustard, and hot pepper jelly.

Thirteen vendors were selling their wares. They included Ashley Basnight/ Boutique on Wheels, Crystal Blackmon/ Empty Nest Studio & Gallery, Trish Dempsey, Hatteras Daisy Troop, Katherine Herzing, Vicki Hoover, Little Grove United Methodist Church,  Jenn Johnson/Blue Pelican Gallery,  Kim Martin/ Hands of Love, Ronald Matson, Kim Mosher/Kim Mosher Designs,  Tracy H. Smith/Outer Banks Bees, Joellen Willis/Silver Light Studio.
The guest reader this year was GeeGee Rosell of Buxton Village Books, who read two books for the children. Kristin Gray was in charge of the Make-it and Take-it Room to keep the youngsters entertained while their parents shopped.

During the lunch hour, music was performed by Clifford Swain.

The organizers send “a special thank you” to everyone who came out to the weekly workshops and also to the set-up and clean-up crews. More than 150 items that were needed were donated by community members. And thanks to the bakers who made all of the goodies for the bake sale, which sold out before the bazaar was over. 

Thank you again. This could not have been as successful as it was without your help!      

All proceeds from this year’s bazaar will be combined with other HUMW fundraising projects and will be distributed to the HUMC Building Fund and more than 20 other charitable organizations.
This day was filled with good fellowship, good food, and lots of fun.

Mark you calendar now for next year’s craft bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 5.
