Nanoose library Christmas bazaar

The bazaar and silent auction will include crafters, jewelry, homemade baking and more

The Nanoose Library Centre and events hall is hosting their annual Christmas fundraiser this Saturday.

The annual Christmas bazaar and silent auction is at the library, located at 2489 Nanoose Rd., on Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The bazaar and silent auction will include crafters, jewelry, homemade baking and more. Volunteers will also be serving soup and chili.

Sue Vella, the co-ordinator of the events team, said they try to keep the bazaar on the smaller side and “somewhat traditional.”

All proceeds will benefit the Nanoose Library Centre.

Nanoose Library Centre and events hall is not part of the Vancouver Island Regional Library system, and as a not-for-profit centre they rely heavily on monies raised through their on-going fundraising activities.

Vella, who is recently involved with the team, said from her understanding, the bazaar has been going on for at least 30 years.

“I asked some of the volunteers and they couldn’t even remember when it started,” she said, adding that it has probably evolved over the years.

For any questions about the bazaar, call 250-248-4773.
