Women of St. Paulís Annual Bazaar in Downtown Franklin, Aug. 30
Small pieces of furniture, house wares, gadgets, electronics, books, decorative items, and linens are just a few examples of products for sale this Friday and Saturday at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Franklin.
The Women of St. Paul’s Annual Bazaar kicks off early Friday, Aug. 30 at 9 a.m. with an old-fashioned sale to benefit the women’s outreach and inreach ministries of the church. Doors close at 5 p.m. on Friday, but will reopen at 9 a.m. again Saturday, Aug. 31 until markdowns begin in the early afternoon. The sale will close at 3 p.m.
If you are considering Historic Franklin as a Labor Day destination, you won’t want to miss the bargains offered by the ladies of Tennessee’s oldest Episcopal church.
“We thoroughly enjoy putting on this fundraiser because it helps support women of all walks of life. We have given to organizations like Thistle Farms, Blue Monarch in the Cumberland Mountain area, and High Hopes locally,” said St. Paul’s member and event organizer Kathy Ulezelski. “When it comes to selecting what to sell in this bazaar our motto is ‘we don’t do junk.’”
An array of sumptuous desserts, including home baked pies, cakes, and even sugar-free desserts will be sold. And, a generous supply of fresh herbs, fresh vegetables, and other homemade jams and jellies will also be offered.
“This event is really about saying farewell to summer. It gives our tight-knit group of ladies one last chance to roll up our sleeves before fall events take over our schedule. We fellowship together, but more importantly, we try to make a difference in the lives of women, and ultimately families.
“The Franklin community and beyond has always supported this event. We know they will come out strong once again this year,” said Ulezelski.
St. Paul’s Episcopal was established in 1827 by Rev. James Hervey Otey. It is the Mother Church of the Tennessee Diocese of the Episcopal Church. The sanctuary was erected in 1831, nearly 200 years ago, and survived the city’s occupation by Federal troops during the Civil War. Today, the church holds four services on Sunday and a mid-week service on Wednesday. For more information, visit www.stpaulsfranklin.com.
