Pictured are just a few of the handcrafted items for sale at First United Methodist Church of DeKalb's 58th annual Holiday Bazaar.

The First United Methodist Church of DeKalb, 321 Oak St. in DeKalb, invites the community to its 58th annual Holiday Bazaar from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

In keeping with tradition, the bazaar will feature a large Attic Treasures room providing an assortment of gently used housewares, purses, decorative items and unique treasures. Another room will house the Craft Sale with handmade items for both the autumn and Christmas seasons. This year, a great deal of extra crafting materials also will be sold. A group of talented crafters gathers each week throughout the year to prepare these items, including home decorations, gift items and more.

The large bake sale will be held in yet a third room.

Take a break from shopping in the Coffee Shop, which will be open from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. The traditional luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. Guests are encouraged to purchase their luncheon tickets in advance at the church office, though there will be tickets available for purchase at the door. Tickets cost $8; $4 for children younger than 10.

All proceeds help support the local and world missions of the United Methodist Women. All crafts, baked goods and luncheon dishes are prepared by members of the church community.

The church is handicapped-accessible from the Fourth Street entrance.

For more information, call the church at 815-756-6301 or visit www.firstumc.net or the Facebook page.
