The Cambridge Woman’s Club will host its Gala Bazaar on Friday, October 7, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, October 8, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The bazaar is being held at Sycamore Cottage, located at 417 High Street in Cambridge. Admission is free.
While visiting the bazaar, one may visit the clubhouse where a variety of silent auction items will be available for bidding. China, crystal, sports equipment, furniture, holiday items and more will be for sale. There will be many quality items along with some antiques.
A special raffle item will be available at the bazaar. It is a beautiful sterling silver workboat charm donated by Thomas’s Jewelers. A ticket for this item costs $5. They are available the day of the bazaar or can be purchased earlier by contacting any club member. The drawing will be sometime during the last hour of the bazaar; one does not need be present to win.
On the clubhouse grounds, find many vendors offering hand-crafted items for sale as well as local community organizations offering information and samples of their services. There will be a bake sale offering homemade bakery items from members. Cold drinks will be for sale also.
The Wednesday Morning Artists will be displaying their creations in the parlor of Sycamore Cottage. This exhibit will also be a part of Cambridge’s Art Walk in downtown Cambridge. Follow the signs to Sycamore Cottage from Race and High streets. The cottage was built in 1759 among a grove of Sycamore trees elsewhere on High Street. In 1840, it was moved to 417 High Street and was purchased by the Cambridge Woman’s Club in 1922. It is the club’s meeting place and was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
Funds generated from the bazaar will support the maintenance of historic Sycamore Cottage as well as community outreach programs, including Waugh Chapel Food Pantry and the Dorchester County Free Library. Parking is available off-street and next to Waugh Chapel United Methodist Church on the day of the event.
