Dear People’s People and Friends,
As you have likely anticipated, we will not be able to hold our traditional Bazaar event this fall. It is a disappointment. However, we have been working to construct a virtual event to support our local artists and vendors and nurture our Bazaar tradition and date until we gather for it in person again.
Here is what we are planning, with all last year’s artists and vendors who choose to participate:
During the month leading up to and including the traditional Bazaar date of the Saturday before Thanksgiving—November 21st this year—People’s Church will feature all the participating artists and vendors in an ongoing promotion through our social media. We will encourage people to come back in person in 2021 and invite them to sustain the spirit of the Bazaar by buying local and supporting our artists and vendors this year. The how-to information will all be provided.
We will prepare a virtual presentation of the artists and vendors who want to participate, with their logos and a few selected pictures of their work, and details on how to reach them and make a purchase and arrange pick-up or delivery. Active links to those with website sales will be included.
We can all support the artists by using this resource ourselves to purchase gifts and special items for ourselves. Although the church will not retain any earnings on these sales, it will be our way of assisting our local artists and local economy. Please watch for the details to come and invite your friends and relatives to shop too. Hold on to those recipes for People’s Specialties and precious treasures for the White Elephant until we meet again!
