A little bit about the Trinity Bazaar

The first Trinity Bazaar took place in 1948. It was a dinner and live auction to raise funds for Columbians who were diagnosed with tuberculosis.

“‘Buy an ancestor!’ the vestry auctioneers called out as oil portraits went on the block. Antique furniture, silver trays, watercolors, wedding dresses, sable neck pieces – all went up for the sake of mission.” Patsy Green’s History of the Bazaar

We have continued our mission of raising funds to serve those in need in Columbia via Bazaar Grants to select 501(c)-3 service nonprofit organizations. But, how the Bazaar has grown!

The event itself has become  a one-day, family-friendly autumn event featuring homemade foods such as pickles, preserves, relishes, baked goods and frozen foods…P1010283.JPG

… hand-crafted items for home and wardrobe (think knit, crochet, art, and craft), gifts, plants and decorative items for home and garden.

… new and gently-used clothing and furniture, musical instruments, household decor, and ‘trinkets & treasures’.

Come to the Bazaar and stock up on collectibles, find dishes for your Thanksgiving table, shop for your Christmas list, and still have money left over for a little something for yourself.

And, count on fun. The Bazaar hosts a children’s carnival complete with games and live pony rides, live music, cathedral tours, and lunch at the Bazaar Cafe. And, it may not be fun, but it sure can keep the fun going – flu shots! Yes, you can even get a flu shot at the Bazaar. Hawthorne Pharmacy donates 50 meals to Harvest Hope Food Bank for every flu shot given. Insurance coverage accepted.

Who will benefit from the Trinity Bazaar this year?  Every year funds raised by the Trinity Bazaar are granted to selected Bazaar grantees. Stay tuned to find out who our 2019 Bazaar grantees are.
