This annual fundraiser will feature over 25 local vendors with unique handcrafted items including honey and maple syrup products, handmade wooden bowls and cutting boards, pottery, clothing, funky and traditional jewelry, and original artwork. Through November 9 a chance raffle is available with over 80 beautiful baskets donated by local businesses and individuals. Baskets include gift cards, jewelry, child’s wooden rocking chair, an overnight stay with spa treatments, American Girl Doll, LEGO Medieval Castle set, and much more! Raffle tickets can be purchased at the library. The ticket prices are 2 tickets for $1, 12 tickets for $5, or 25 tickets for $10. The tickets can be used towards any basket.
The concept for Holiday Marketplace (2009) was created by former Library staff member Dorothy Boccella (1960-2013), a talented woman whose infectious enthusiasm, generosity, and creativity made this event and its success possible.
