St. Luke’s Christmas Tea and Bazaa Saturday, December 7th
Saturday December 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., is the date for the annual Christmas Tea and Holiday Bazaar in Willard Hall at St. Luke’s Church, 313 Main Street in Chester. A festive focus at Chester’s Overture to Christmas, this event is the traditional kick-off to the Christmas season for many in Vermont, New Hampshire, and nearby states. It’s a lovely way to celebrate the season with friends by eating and chatting at festively decorated tables while enjoying an enhanced high tea (or fancy lunch) featuring delicious light sandwiches and scrumptious sweets. Fill your plate as much as you like at $8 per person (youth 6-12 at $4; 5 and under, free).
Just a few feet away, the Holiday Bazaar makes shopping for special gifts very quick and easy. Offerings include unique (or very limited) handcrafted and quilted items, live evergreen and hand-sewn Christmas decorations and ornaments, original floral note cards and candles, and much more. New this year is a Pet Corner with tasty treats and special gifts for favorite furry friends. The Culinary Classics table offers a delicious array of handmade chocolates, baked goods, jams, soups, and casseroles that will ease cooking at this busy time of year and brighten up any winter day. Another favorite feature of the event is Grandma’s Attic, where former treasures and practical items for one person can become a collectible or practical solution for a new owner at a modest donation.
This event is a joyous time for delicious food and conversation and the discovery of special presents and treats. So, invite a friend to lunch and shop at this special holiday tradition. We hope to see you there.
