MADISON — Just in time for holiday shopping, special items for everyone on your holiday list and for yourself will be abundant at the Thursday Morning Club’s festive “Le Bazar de Noel” two-day holiday boutique from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 13 and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 14 at the Madison Community House, 25 Cook Avenue.

The Bazar will feature many wonderful exhibitors as well as a “Tricky Tray”.  These gift baskets will include gift cards, bank cards, and gift certificates to popular local restaurants and many beautiful handmade items.

This event is the Club’s major fundraising event of the year and proceeds provide operating funds for the Madison Community House, which is owned, operated, and supported by the Thursday Morning Club.

La Patisserie, which has been a popular feature of every Bazar de Noel (and this year’s Le Bazar is the 40th) will sell delicious quiches, cakes, bread, cookies, and homemade pies, perfect for your Thanksgiving dessert.  A variety of homemade soups and sauces will also be available for purchase.

Phyllis Flemming and Judy Hynes, Bazar co-chairs, have selected exhibitors who will offer high quality, unique, classic, and handmade items. Flemming noted, “with the special exhibitors, Tricky Tray, and homemade soups, etc., the Bazar is a festive and fabulous shopping experience”.  A few of the clothing vendors will be Groovy Elegance, Lei-Lei, Compassion Fashions, and the wonderful Preppy Player.  There will be handbags from Jo Jo’s Bags and Things, new and vintage jewelry from Remy’s Gems, and Swarovski jewelry from Touchstone and of course, House of Cork. Other vendors include Maiden Madison,  Lisaro Toys, and a new vendor, Col de Mar!  J J’s will provide local honey and a variety of sweet treats!  Their wares are available on our website!  Please take a look!

In an effort to provide a safe visit to our Bazar, we will be enforcing the New Jersey State mandates that are based on CDC guidelines.  No one will be admitted without a mask, and there will be masks available for all those who need one!

Admission to the “Le Bazar de Noel” is free. For information about the Bazar, please call (973) 377-0244 or email www.ThursdayMorningClub.org.
