Stocking stuffers and Christmas decorations will be available for purchase during the third annual Shelby Eastern Schools' Christmas bazaar this weekend.

This year’s bazaar takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Waldron Jr/Sr. High School and features a variety of vendors, starting with job skills students at Waldron and Morristown Jr/Sr. high schools.

Booth space is still available.

Anyone wanting to be added as a vendor for an 8x8 area for $35 should contact Kelli Warner, the Waldron Jr/Sr. High School job skills teacher, at kwarner@ses.k12.in.us or by calling her at 765-525-6822, ext. 5201. The deadline to buy a booth is Thursday.

The bazaar will feature a variety of items created over the past year by Waldron and Morristown job skills students, such as wood products, jewelry and ornaments. A combined 16 students between the two schools spent the past year preparing for this year’s bazaar, but have particularly worked hard this fall.

“(We’re) looking for social skills, talking to the public, but ultimately they have the opportunity to do a business they enjoy,” Michelle Neff, special education director, said.

Lunch will be served by students.

While she couldn’t say how many people she anticipates attending this year, Neff said more than 100 showed up last year despite a snowstorm that particular day.

“They put in a lot of hours,” she said of Shelby Eastern students participating. “(I’m) very proud of the work the students have done and the hours our teachers put in for this event.”

Along with the job skills students selling their items, a number of vendors such as Lularoe, Thirty-One, Everything But the Kitchen Sink and Mary Kay will also be on hand.

Vanessa Wright is the life skills teacher at Morristown.
