Organizers say there will be a little bit of everything!
If you can’t wait until Saturday A Shopper’s Sneak Preview will be held Fri., Aug. 21 from 4 to 7 p.m. Although there is no entrance fee either day, a free will donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. All of the proceeds from this entire event go to the Ocean Grove Church to assist and support the community through their food pantry, the Angel Fund, Tender Care Nursery School and youth and worship ministries.
Donations were generous so there is a ton to choose from: a wide array of clothing to spectacular knickknacks, furniture, home goods, bedding, lights, lamps, jewelry, art, albums, kitchenware, books and more, organizers said.
A featured item at the bazaar is Ralph, The Ocean Grove Fisherman, the unofficial mascot of Ocean Grove. A large selection of these lovingly-created Ralph dolls, as well as the storybook of Ralph’s life will be for sale.
Fresh baked goods will also be available for purchase including individual sized cakes and pies on Friday. And on Saturday there will be coffee cakes, muffins and scones. All proceeds from these treats and the Ralph dolls are going to the Angel Fund, helping local families with local financial emergencies.
As this is an indoor event, being held in Fellowship Hall of Ocean Grove Church, the strictest social distancing rules apply. Masks must be worn at all times. If you arrive without one, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitizer will also be available for use.
