fellowship, good food, and good shopping
at annual craft bazaar….WITH
By FAYE FOSTER
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
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
Pelican Gallery, Kim Martin/ Hands of Love, Ronald Matson,
