Holiday shopping bazaar benefits Main Street Gardnerville

by Caryn Haller

In an effort to encourage local holiday shopping, Main Street Gardnerville is hosting an inaugural holiday shopping bazaar fundraiser.

The shopping event is 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 12 at St. Gall Pastoral Center, 1343 Centerville Lane.

“It’s a kickoff to the holidays. It’s going to be festive with a wide variety of things to enjoy,” said Marcia Voeller, event chairwoman. “This helps downtown merchants get their names out. It’s also about shopping local so more people become aware of what we have in the Valley.”

More than 35 Carson Valley vendors will be selling a variety of goods, including CJS Floors, Especially For You, Urban Jungle and East Fork Gallery.

“People can expect jewelry, Christmas items, cookbooks, dog-themed products and skin care products,” Voeller said. “It makes it fun for everybody because there’s something for everyone.”

Tickets cost $12 in advance and $15 at the door. The price includes a beverage, appetizer plate and raffle ticket.

Raffle prizes include Mount Rose ski passes, artwork, jewelry and gift baskets.

“It’s our first-time run, and we’re hoping for a good turn out,” Voeller said.

Money raised from ticket sales benefits the Main Street Gardnerville Program, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the restoration and beautification of downtown Gardnerville.

Tickets can be purchased at Especially For You, Curves, Joyce’s Fine Jewelry, Silver Heels Boutique, Kat’s Home decor and the Town of Gardnerville office.
