I have been making angels and frosties like there’s no tomorrow and am excited to pack them all up this week to go to the Woman’s Club of Evanston Holiday Bazaar. This juried gift fair features more than 50 artists and makers of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind gifts.
The Bazaar takes place this coming weekend. On Friday, November 16, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. there will be a ticketed Preview Party. Purchase the $25 tickets on Eventbrite for appetizers from local restaurants and a glass of wine.
Admission is free Saturday, November 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 18, from noon to 4 p.m. The bazaar is located at The Woman’s Club of Evanston (WCE) historic clubhouse
1702 Chicago Avenue, Evanston, Illinois.
Vendor categories include: Fashion Accessories • Home Decor • Clothing • Gourmet Food • Specialty Items • Jewelry • Fair Trade Vendors. I applied for this show a few years back but the jewelry category was full. This year I am accepted for ornaments only, which is what prompted the replenishing of stock.
With a suggested donation and the silent auction you can support grants given to local community organizations. Street parking is available throughout downtown Evanston. Parking is free for the first hour in the City of Evanston lot on Church Street at Chicago Avenue. The lot is on Church Street, just east of The Woman’s Club of Evanston.
The Woman’s Club of Evanston is easily accessible from public transportation and a few blocks east of both the Davis Street Metra station and the Davis Street Purple Line stop.
More than 125 years ago, a group of visionary women formed The Woman’s Club of Evanston to address pressing social issues and unmet community needs. Since 1889, the WCE has been a transformative community force, volunteering thousands of hours and making hundreds of financially significant philanthropic grants.
Each year, WCE members raise and contribute more than $125,000 and 15,000 hours of volunteer service to local not for profit organizations. With a vibrant community of nearly 400 multi-generational members, the WCE continues to shape the future of service and philanthropy in Evanston and surrounding communities.
I look forward to seeing you there!
