Papoose Club's 22nd Annual Holiday Bazaar
Papoose Club will kick off the holiday season on the first weekend in December with its 22nd Annual Holiday Bazaar. This perennial favorite holiday shopping extravaganza will be held at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum on Saturday, December 1 from 9:00am-5:00pm and Sunday, December 2 from 11:00am-4:00pm. Admission is free.
The Holiday Bazaar is an important fundraiser for Papoose Club, whose mission is to support local youth-oriented groups through fundraising activities and events in the Wood River Valley. The club provides important financial support to local organizations that serve children and makes it possible for kids of the Wood River Valley to grow up with access to a wide variety of activities.
The Holiday Bazaar is a juried arts show that features high quality hand-crafted goods from more than 50 vendors from across the Intermountain West. A wide assortment of gift items will be available for purchase including ceramics, handblown glass, clothing, jewelry, handbags, birdhouses, home décor, textiles, edibles and more.
Over the course of the weekend, Papoose Club volunteers will be offering fresh soup in the Soup Café and selling homemade holiday cookies by the dozen. Tickets for Papoose Club’s famous raffle are also available for purchase, with a fabulous array of raffle items from which to choose. As a special treat, Santa Claus will make an appearance at 1:30pm on Sunday, so be sure to bring your camera! There will also be a creative children’s activity sponsored by The Bead Shop in Hailey, as well as a booth where children can write letters to Santa. For more information, visit www.papooseclub.org.
