Lewes in Bloom is holding its third annual Christmas Market at St. Peter’s Church courtyard on Saturday, December 3, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Unique, handmade centerpieces by Lewes in Bloom artists will be available for sale. They can also be pre-ordered on the Lewes in Bloom website ( www.lewesinbloom.org/shop ) and picked up at the courtyard that day. The photo on the website is representative of the centerpieces available, but the actual centerpieces may somewhat differ. Long-lasting evergreen wreaths, swags, and bundles will also be sold. Greens and wreaths are dipped in a preservative so they last. All proceeds will benefit Lewes in Bloom.
Many Lewes in Bloom members contribute their talents and resources to create the Market’s distinctive items. The long-lasting evergreens are carefully selected, and in some cases are cultivated in the backyards of members. Plants, pinecones, ribbons, shells, berries, and other details are selected and donated by members who handcraft each centerpiece and prepare the evergreens for sale.
Don’t miss this opportunity to adorn your home or business with distinct handcrafted items while supporting Lewes in Bloom.
