ATHOL - For those who want to avoid the materialistic frenzy and expense of mall shopping, a local hometown event offers a delightful alternative, local publicist Perky Granger said this week, citing Saturday's Country Christmas Bazaar in Thurman.
"Forget about Black Friday, fighting mall crowds and decimating the holiday budget," she said. "Enjoy the friendly banter, unique items and great prices at the annual Bazaar."
To be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 28 in the Thurman Town Hall in Athol, the bazaar features jewelry, gifts and collectibles, as well as knitted, sewn, crocheted items and baked goods.
Also, shoppers will see one of a kind Adirondack Rustic Miniatures by Donna Wormwood, stained glass stepping stones, all natural Thurman maple products, homemade soaps, lotions and candles and more. Light refreshments and lunch are available at the event. For details, see: www.Thurman-ny.com or call 623-2580.
