Shoppers score early Christmas gifts at St. Davids bazaar


Lots of unique craft items were on sale at the annual St. Davids Lioness Christmas Holiday Market, where shoppers could hunt for early Christmas gifts.

Organized by the St. Davids and District Lioness Club, the bazaar hosted 14 artisan vendors at the St. Davids Lions Club Saturday.

The market runs twice a year, in spring and fall, and all proceeds go back into the community, said the event’s co-ordinator, Diane Pewer.

“Money raised will go to dog guides, Project Share, Heart and Stroke Foundations, Ronald McDonald House Charities, SickKids Foundation Toronto, Lions Eye Care Niagara, and many more,” she told The Lake Report.

The club was also selling poinsettias, which were bought from two greenhouses in town, Pewer said.

For lunch, club members prepared beef on a bun and the bake table featured homemade pies, muffins, tarts and cookies.

For one of the vendors, Emily and Jennifer Neufeld of Bay Beach Boutique, it was the first time participating in a craft show. The mother-daughter duo said they’ve spent months preparing and they were excited to be there.

“It’s fun,” said Jennifer Neufeld.

Niagara Falls residents John and Barbara Grier said they enjoy attending events like the bazaar, where they can find unique items. They said they bought some baked goods and raffle tickets.

“And we like to support the Lions,” John Grier added.
