The Boca Raton Garden Club Holiday House Bazaar

The Boca Raton Garden Club Holiday House Bazaar

The Boca Raton Garden Club will hold its annual Holiday House bazaar at the club’s clubhouse Nov 1st
Nov 2nd, and Nov 3rd.  from 9AM to 3PM with no plant sale Nov 3rd.

 Garden Club President Nancy Richards said,” Our crafters have been creating handmade items since May this year. We have seasonal decorations for Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas, as well as unusual creations for year round enjoyment.  Our ‘elves’ specialize in unique pieces that cannot be found elsewhere.”  

“Holiday House is our club’s biggest fundraiser”, added Nancy.  “In addition to the bazaar, we also hold a bake sale of homemade goodies, and a plant sale.   Sales from this event fund our community programs such as the garden therapy program at FAU’s Memory Center, youth gardening at local schools, environmental camp Wekiva, university scholarships and educational programs to name a few.”  

 Holiday House Co-Chair, Mary Kaub, said  “We have lots of unique new crafts for sale this year- for example ‘People Planters’ made from terracotta pots, hand painted with heads, hands and dangling legs. They’re sure to be big sellers.”  Co-Chair Patty Moum added, “Also new this year our members have made one of a kind mobiles,  wind chimes and other gifts from natural woods, plant materials and shells.  We also have a large selection of embroidered  and handmade  items - jewelry  bags, aprons, and casserole carriers
 – a very popular gift!”

 Cindy Puiatti, Bake Sale Chair, exclaimed, “ Our Bake Sale gets bigger every year with more and more of our members baking and donating their homemade specialties.  It’s so easy to pick up pies, cookies, cakes and breads and freeze them for the Holidays! Come early because we always sell out!”

 “In addition to the all the wonderful crafts and homemade goodies,” said Landscaping Chairman, Joan Witter, “we again are holding a huge plant sale Friday Nov 1st and   Saturday  Nov 2nd  in our club’s beautiful gardens. There will be no Plant Sale on Sunday .  Plants grown and cultivated by our club’s own ‘dirt gardeners’ include herbs, orchids, succulents and a wide variety of natives. Gardening tools, accessories and ornamental pieces are available as well.”
