Merryspring Holiday Bazaar
Camden — Merryspring Nature Center is holding its annual Holiday Bazaar during Christmas By the Sea weekend.
Always a special event, the Bazaar gives shoppers an opportunity to double their gift-giving, since every purchase of holiday decorations and gifts goes to benefit Merryspring Nature Center.
The Bazaar is open to the general public Saturday, Dec. 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There also is a Members Only Sale Thursday, Dec. 5, from 2 to 6 p.m. Members receive a 10 percent discount on all purchases, and shoppers may sign up for membership.
As in past years, the Merryspring Holiday Bazaar will feature a variety of natural and nature-based gifts — many crafted by our talented volunteers — for your holiday purchases. Balsam wreaths (either decorated or plain), birch bark wreaths, evergreen swags, bundles of greens, winterberry, holly, miniature boxwood trees, and attractive centerpieces will be available at the sale.
In addition to holiday greenery, there will be gloves, tools, and books for the gardener or naturalist on the list as well as an array of unique gifts including homemade spiced pecans, herbal sachets, paperwhites in decorative gift bags or pre-planted containers, supplies to make one's own decorations, botanical greeting cards, note cards, ornaments, and more.
