DEL RIO—Handmade crafts, homemade food, and live Christmas music will once again be featured at the annual Del Rio Christmas Bazaar, set for Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Del Rio Elementary School gymnasium.

Also featured with be more "Bling for Books," beautiful jewelry sent from around the world for the school’s ongoing project to raise money for the school’s library. Thanks to lovers of Catherine Marshall’s novel Christy, based on the Presbyterian school once operated in the Old 15th, the school received donations of jewelry from over 40 states and more than one foreign country.

Leslie Gibbens, Del Rio Library Director, established the bazaar six years ago to provide a setting for local crafters and cooks to sell their wares. "An important difference between this sale and most others is our requirement that vendors actually produce the items they sell," she said.
