One of the most anticipated events of Metropolitan’s year is the UMW Bazaar. After months of collecting and sorting donated prized possessions, the UMW throws open the rooms throughout the church allowing people to shop for new and vintage jewelry, collectibles, kitchen gadgets, home furnishings, handcrafts, used books and toys. Of particular note is the Attic Treasures section, which features an incomparable array of used items.
How to Donate to the UMW Bazaar
You can donate all manner of gently-used items, such as: Kitchen Items; China and Collectibles; Puzzles and Games; “Attic Treasures”; Christmas Decorations; Jewelry and Accessories; Boutique-quality ladies’ wear; Hand-made crafts. Please, no electronics, no furniture, no books, no magazines, and no crutches – none of these sells well. Questions? Contact Barbara Gaskill.
How to Help at the UMW Bazaar
Volunteers are needed throughout the year to help sort, price, and store donations for the bazaar. Sorting and pricing of donated items continues, and there's plenty to do! Daytime, evening, and weekend volunteer times are possible. Hope you can pitch in! For more information, contact, Barbara Gaskill, UMW Bazaar coordinator.
