Holiday Boutique returns with bake sale & great prizes

November 1, 2016 by


Shoppers at the 2015 Neighbor to Neighbor Holiday Boutique check out some of the hand-crafted jewelry at the annual sale. This year’s Boutique is set for Saturday, Nov. 12.

web-holidayboutique-full-2016The artisans at Neighbor to Neighbor create with all kinds of materials — acrylics and oils, embroidery floss and ribbon, threads and beads, yarn, fabric, wood, and (of course) sugar, flour, eggs, butter and chocolate.

And all that “art” will be for sale at the sixth annual Holiday Boutique & Bake Sale on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the downtown center, 103 E. Sixth St., Concordia.

Items featured in the boutique include one-of-a-kind jewelry, handcrafted holiday décor, artwork, knit scarves and hats, quilted items, children’s clothes and toys, women’s apparel and bobbin lace designs. The always popular bake sale will feature cookies, candies, breads and other goodies.

All the items are made by the women who come to the center, along with friends and supporters of the Sisters of St. Joseph who operate Neighbor to Neighbor.

There will also be a drawing for six prizes:

  • “Heart to Heart” quilt, hand-appliqued and hand-quilted blocks created by master quilter Sandra Detrixhe and friends.
  • Two sets of hand-carved football and baseball miniatures, one in mahogany and one in mesquite. Hand-carved and donated by Duane Blake of Apache Junction, Ariz.
  • A Barbie-sized fashion doll with her own lace-covered wicker closet filled with outfits handmade by Sister Susan Stoeber.
  • A lovely doll, hand dressed as a Native American by Jean Wilcox and Fran Shaw. She comes with a stand to display for years to come.
  • A collectible doll, with display stand, with her own wardrobe hand-crafted by Sister Susan Stoeber.

Tickets for the drawings are available at Neighbor to Neighbor; the Nazareth Motherhouse, 1300 Washington St.; and Manna House of Prayer, 323 E. Fifth St., Concordia.

The prize drawings will be at 2 p.m. during the Holiday Boutique, and ticket-holders need not be present to win.

All proceeds from the annual event support the programs, artists and craftswomen at Neighbor to Neighbor.
