Holiday Boutiques Serve Up Shopping
Escalons own bird man Ray Gentry brought his handmade birdhouses to the Senior Craft Day at the Escalon Museum.


There was plenty of opportunity to snap up some unique holiday gift items on Saturday in Escalon, as both the Escalon United Methodist Church and Escalon Historical Society put on craft bazaars.

At the church, it was the annual holiday bazaar and soup and pie luncheon, with a variety of handmade crafts, wooden items, homemade jams and jellies and frozen, ready-to-bake pies there for the buying. Homemade chili was a popular lunchtime attraction and the winner of the queen-sized Butterfly Quilt opportunity drawing was Lori Duncan of Escalon.

Historical Society members, meanwhile, hosted their first ‘Senior Craft’ day with local seniors offering items at booths, including homemade wind chimes, birdhouses, handbags, Stampin’ Up crafts and decorative plates. Giftwrapping was available through the Society.

Here are some photos from the two events.
