In contrast to the auctions, all items in these venues have fixed
prices or, occasionally, make-an-offer pricing.
Bake Sale. This is an opportunity to purchase homemade breads, rolls, zwieback, cookies, cakes, New Year’s cookies (Porzilke), pies of all kinds, peppernuts, and bars, along with homemade jams and jellies. This sale, coordinated by Margaret Janzen and Arlene Geissinger, takes place on tables in the hallway leading from the lobby area to the cafeteria.
Artisan Market. Expect the unexpected in the artisan market: things such as braided rugs, greeting cards, cookbooks, small quilted items such as table runners and wall hangings, and possibly some Christmas decorations. A new feature this year, introduced by new organizers Mari and Matthew Ingersoll, is “Mari’s Boutique,” which offers almost-new women’s and men’s fashions. Located in the northeast corner of the cafeteria. Check out our gallery of items below!
Quilters’ Corner. A go-to place to find Japanese quilt magazines, quilt books and patterns, fabrics, and various other items to inspire creativity.
Ten Thousand Villages. TTV, a popular St. Paul fair trade retailer that has a long association with the Twin Cities MCC Sale will be offering many items from its store for sale in the southeast corner of the cafeteria area at the Twin Cities Festival and Sale for World Relief.
Boutique The Boutique offers high quality, gently used clothing items.
