									                          2007 Bazaar Donation Guidelines

Our annual Bizarre Bazaar is Saturday, November 10 from 8:30am – 2:00pm. The
bazaar is our yearly sale of items donated by church members, friends, and neighbors.
Proceeds are used for our vibrant church programs.

Listed below are guidelines about what we take for the bazaar. Also see list of what we
don’t take at the end of this article.

All items must be clean, useable and not broken. A good guideline is to donate items to
the bazaar you would give to a friend. If it’s dirty, broken, stained, moldy, has missing
parts, please dispose of it yourself. We gladly accept items in the categories listed below.
