The time for one of the most highly anticipated events of the year is here – the Country Faire at the Lake Arrowhead Community Presbyterian Church.
Year after year – except during the pandemic – folks have been known to line up outside the church on the Friday of Labor Day weekend to be among the first shoppers. They know they will get first crack at the best items offered for sale.
Some absolutely gorgeous furniture has been donated – sofas, ottomans, dressers, dining tables and chairs, hutch cabinets. Someone could furnish an entire house!
And, of course, there are always lots of books, housewares, toys and clothing for men, women and children.
Don’t forget the bake sale! Members of the church have been baking up a storm.
And speaking of food, plan to stay for lunch as there will be a barbecue.
In addition to getting some great deals, shoppers will help support the church’s missions and ministry: tote bags for foster youth, a Peacemaking scholarship, the Good Sam food closet, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for local families.
The Faire will take place on Sept. 1 and 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
