MARYVILLE, Mo.—  The SSM Health St. Francis Hospital Auxiliary annual Holiday Bazaar and Craft Sale includes Christmas trees, wreaths, centerpieces and décor as well as baked goods, holiday candy and treats.

Sheila Kelly, with the SSM Health St. Francis Hospital Auxiliary said she was working, but also shopping Thursday at the annual Holiday Bazaar.

“It’s going really well,” she said. “The food stuff is going well too.”

Part of the allure of the bazaar, is the fact that these handmade items are so few in number. The items are specially made for the event and they are sometimes one-of-a-kind.

Kelly told The Forum on Thursday that a lot of items had been sold since the bazaar began Wednesday and that the organization is glad to see it going so well.

All funds raised during the event go to nursing scholarships and hospital equipment that is not otherwise budgeted.

The bazaar is open until 8 p.m. tonight and continues from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday in the main entrance at the hospital.
