DSC_8106Area residents will have a great opportunity to shop for the upcoming holidays and support local charities at the Highland For the Holidays shopping bazaar from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 22, at Highland School, 597 Broadview Avenue, Warrenton.

More than 40 regional merchants will offer their goods at the third annual bazaar, plus three Food Trucks. Bad to the Bone, Bavarian Chef, and SoBoMobile will be there to help you fuel up for shopping, keep the family busy outside while you play “Santa” inside, or make it easy to take dinner home with you after your acquisition expedition.

“We have an incredible array of vendors this year,” said co-chairman Wendy Rodgers. “There is truly something for everyone! From custom-designed jewelry and clothing for men and women, to gifts for teachers, teens and children, to beautiful holiday decorations, you can take care of all your holiday shopping needs in one day.”

IMG_0477Some of the 40 merchants participating this year include Carter & Spence, Mystique Jewelers, and Vallie’s Vintage Jewelry; J. Hilburn Clothiers (men) and J. McLaughlin of Middleburg (women); A Pea in the Pot and Dianne’s Rum Cakes (gourmet foods for take-home or special order); Piccadilly Ltd of Warrenton and Harriet’s General of Culpeper (gifts galore); and Waterford Run Farm & Forge and Live Wreaths (locally made wreaths and decorations).

Merchandise offerings include children’s books, fine, antique and costume jewelry, specialty clothing, home décor, holiday decorations, gardening items, local original art, antique linens, fine handmade woodcrafts, delicious foods, personal chef services, personalized stationery, kitchen wares, holidays plants and wreathes, gifts for pets and pet lovers, and so much more. 

DSC_8072The $5 admission fee, with children under 12 free, will go directly to the Fauquier Family Shelter and the Fauquier Free Clinic.

“We are especially excited to help raise funds for two worthy local causes.  Highland will split the proceeds of the entrance fee between these two great organizations, who always need extra help for families and children who are struggling during the holiday season,” Rodgers said.
