BUMC Fall Bazaar Sept. 21-22
The unofficial kick-off of autumn in the High Country is right
around the corner – the Fall Bazaar at Boone United Methodist Church.
The event has become so popular over the past 28 years that now thousands attend – in search of hidden treasures and bargains, good food and fellowship.
Located at 471 New Market Blvd., directly behind New Market Centre in Boone, the church’s annual Fall Bazaar will be Friday, Sept. 21, from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 7:30 to 11 a.m.
Features include furniture, computers and electronics, sports equipment, clothing of all kinds, handmade crafts, Christmas items, jams and jellies, baked goods, new and previewed books and videos, and yard sale items, as well as “down home” country cooking.
An old-fashioned country breakfast will be served on Friday and Saturday mornings, plus lunch on Friday. A silent auction featuring jewelry, china, silver and many items from local businesses will accept bids on Friday until 6 p.m.
The bazaar is one of the church’s main events, involving more than 500 volunteers of all ages (3 to 100, to be exact), serving more than 6,000 hours. The event benefits the church building fund and local missions.
According to organizers, the bazaar has evolved into one of the most fun and effective ways of recycling used furniture and other items.
