It's that time of year! The Holiday Shows for 2016 will soon begin and I'm happy to share our   schedule for this year with you. We're doing four shows this season--three of the shows we've done in past years, and one show is new for us this year.  At all of the shows we'll be featuring our expanded collection of Birthstone Jewelry, as well as other pendants and earrings to chose from. Booth space at each show is different, so we'll use our available space to bring you as much variety as is possible.

We start off the show season with a new show for us at the 2016 Women in Business Holiday Bazaar, presented by the Ephrata Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Group on Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 5 pm to 8:30 pm. This is an "after-work" event held at the Ephrata American Legion, 300 Cocalico Street, Ephrata, PA. About 30 vendors will be participating. Admission and parking are free, and food service will be available.

On Friday, November 11, 2016 we return for the third time to the Main Street Boutique at the Worship Center, 2384 New Holland Pike, Lancaster, PA. Hours are 9 am to 1 pm and 5 pm to 8 pm. The morning hours here are a favorite with mothers of young children and grandmoms as well. The evening hours attract the after-work shoppers who enjoy some leisure time to shop for holiday gifts and have a snack or light supper in the on-site cafe. Admission and parking are free.

Saturday, November 12, 2016 we'll make our second appearance at the 39th Annual Christmas in the Country Craft Show at the Church of the Apostles, 1850 Marietta Avenue, Lancaster, PA. Hours are 9 am to 3 pm. This is a busy and bustling show with vendors located throughout the many school rooms in the church facility. Admission and parking are free, and food service is available for hungry shoppers.

We have a couple weeks to catch our breath and replenish inventory prior to the last show of the season on Saturday, December 3, 2016 when we return to St. Philip Catholic Church, 2111 Millersville Pike, Lancaster, PA. This is the 24th Annual Show at St. Philip's. This show is popular with shoppers for Christmas Decorations, Baked Goods and Holiday Gifts. The show is open from 9 am to 3 pm. Admission and parking are free, and food service is available.
