Women of FOCUS Christmas Plus Bazaar is this Saturday

The Perham Women of FOCUS group will be holding its 37th Annual Christmas Plus Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The bazaar attracts thousands to Perham every year for a day of shopping.

Held at the Perham Area Community Center, the bazaar will feature many favorite vendors from past years, said Katie Hennagir, vendor coordinator for the bazaar. Jacob’s Lefse, The Toymaker, Recollections and Pam’s Crafts will all have booths again this year.

Hennagir said there will also be several new vendors, including JeanaMichelle, with handmade pet accessories, and Touch of Glass, with fused glass crafts.

Admission for adults is $2, children 12 and under can enter for free.

Parking will be available in the PACC parking lot, behind the high school and at the East Otter Tail County Fairgrounds across from Subway. Signs will be displayed directing shoppers to the various parking locations.

Perham Women of FOCUS is a non-profit women’s group with a goal of promoting friendship and goodwill throughout the community. The annual Christmas Plus Bazaar is the organization’s primary fundraiser.

All proceeds from the event are donated directly back to the community.

Lunch will be available, served by the Lakes Area Penguin Swimmers and Perham Swim Team. Normally, these two groups benefit from the bazaar through later donations from Women of FOCUS. Now, they will be contributing to the fundraiser, as well.
