The Daily Iowegian

---- — Christmas Shoppe

As part of a community-wide day of local activities, the popular Vintage Christmas Shoppe will be open in the Community Building on the Moravia square from 8 a.m.–7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23. The Shoppe will once again feature new and gently used fall décor and holiday decorations including a full-size artificial tree and three smaller pre-decorated trees, dishes and glassware, some winter clothing, gift baskets, pre-wrapped gift boxes, and knick-knacks and a framed Amish print.

Sweet treats, cider and tea will be served to all shoppers. All proceeds will go toward the scholarship fund for the Miss Moravia pageant at Fall Festival. The recipient is chosen on the basis of a written essay submitted during the contest.

Light of Life Church Holiday Bazaar

The Light of Life Church, 411 N. William in Moravia, will hold a Holiday Bazaar and Bake Sale as part of the community-wide activities on Saturday, Nov. 23. There will be homemade pies, cakes, cookies, noodles and candies as well as fall and Christmas décor, ornaments, jewelry, gifts, hand-tied blankets and so much more. A special feature will be a lovely handmade queen/king size quilt. A $1 donation will allow the donor to enter a name in the drawing for this brand new treasure. Hours for the Bazaar are 9 a.m.–2 p.m.

And there’s more - - -

In addition to the Vintage Christmas Shoppe, there are many other great events planned. Moravia Farm Hands 4-H club will serve a soup supper from 5–7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 in the Community Building.
