The Junior Service League is once again hosting its annual Holiday Market, this year with the theme “A Carolina Christmas.”
The Cinema in Orangeburg will feature holiday gifts galore on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17-18.
Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door, and can be purchased at Murphy's Autoglass, Devin's Flowers, or from any JSL member.
Photos with Santa will be available from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Saturday. Lunch will be provided from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
JSL President Kim Weeks said, “Our holiday market is one of our biggest events.”
The funds raised go toward JSL projects throughout the year, such as Project Girl in which the organization donates money and feminine items to schools and the scholarships it offers to Orangeburg, Calhoun and Bamberg County students.
This year’s market kicks off with the third annual “Boots, Brews and Barbeque” event at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16 at The Garden Room.
Entertainment will be provided by Men of Distinction, and food will be catered by Hudson's Smokehouse. Also featured will be a Silent Auction and a raffle drawing.
Advanced tickets will be available at Murphy's Autoglass, Devin's Flowers, or from any JSL member for $30, or $35 at the door.
The Holiday Market officially opens at 4 p.m on Friday, Nov. 17, and will run until 7 p.m. Hours on Saturday, Nov. 18 will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Lunch will be provided on Saturday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Weeks expects up to 26 vendors to be in attendance selling items from jewelry to food to clothing for both women and children.
Lisa Beard will be showcasing all natural skincare and professional grade makeup. She will be doing onsite foundation matches, makeovers and will have cash-and-carry during the event.
Lynn Doster will have a set up for her business, Accessory Stop - Accessories for You and Your Home. Costume and fresh-water pearl jewelry, faux fur accessories and monogrammed linen hand towels will also be featured at the market.
To satisfy the sweet tooth, “Sallie's Greatest,” which sells herbal fruit jams and simple syrups, will have a booth. The syrups are 100 percent fresh fruit juice, fresh herbs, and cane sugar for use in teas, sodas, sorbets or cocktails. With a line of simple syrups having the same flavor profiles as the jams, everyone is sure to find a favorite.
For parents, there will also be a SweetBabyTutu booth. The company is an online children’s boutique that sells upscale children's clothing brands at closeout prices.
More vendors can be found on the Orangeburg Junior Service League Facebook page where vendors are being highlighted daily.
