Christmas Bazaar


All of the Bazaar favorites are back this year

  • Holiday Greens: wreaths and roping for pickup and sale. Pre-order your greens by November 14 using this form.
  • Holiday Vendors: Christmas shopping with local vendors selling jewelry, home décor, holiday gifts and more!
  • Country Store: featuring homemade jams, pickles, baked goods and frozen dinners of family favorites like chili, Maryland crab soup and gumbo. To volunteer to make food for the Store, please contact Hannah Morehead.

For the children 

  • Photos with Santa and holiday crafts
  • A chance to shop for toys and ornaments for themselves or to give as gifts
  • Visit the Storyteller, Bill Wood, sharing A World of Giving

Celebrate the season with stories that remind us that giving is more important than getting. Bill Wood tells stories with energy and enthusiasm, a dash of harmonica, a pinch of penny whistle and drum and a heaping helping of soft, furry animal puppets. Finally, he invites the audience to join in, and together teller and listener cook up a delightful story feast. The end result is a smorgasbord of fun, guaranteed to satisfy the taste of anyone aged 3-103!

Help make our Bazaar a success with your donations!

Donations for toys, ornaments and cookbooks can be delivered to St. David’s Preschool on October 26 and October 27 from 8:30am-3:00pm. Alternatively, you can drop donations in the Great Hall on October 30 and November 6 from 8:00am-noon.

We are excited to accept creative toys in “like new” condition. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept battery-operated toys, sports equipment, or bicycles. Holiday ornaments should be in good condition and ready to hang.

Call for Bazaar volunteers!

Help staff the Bazaar, from the Country Store to the Food Court and more. Contact Jenny Hovermill (jhovermill@comcast.net or 410.409.8458) for next steps.

About the Bazaar

The decades-old tradition of the St. David’s Bazaar brings the parish, Day School, and community together once a year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to have some fun while preparing for the holiday season. Some parts of the bazaar are institutions, such as the Greens Sale, a visit from Santa Claus, and a Food Court that includes everything from oysters to one parishioner’s famous egg rolls. But we also keep current by changing what we sell and how we sell it. The Country Store offers foods and crafts (ranging from jams and homemade soups to pinecone turkeys, amaryllis bulbs and/or flower arrangements for the Thanksgiving table). We also secure vendors who bring high-quality shopping to patrons. And in any given year we might include a series of beautifully assembled raffle baskets, some geared to kids and some offering experiences like a Ravens night or a beach vacation. We cherish this opportunity to capitalize on the current talents and resources of our parish and celebrate the coming of Christmas as one big church family!
