Soul Sisters to host holiday market to help fight cancerPublished 7:44pm Wednesday, November 6, 2013
A local church will provide an outlet for local Christmas shoppers to help in the fight against cancer.
The Alexander City Methodist Church Soul Sisters will host their Holiday Market Thursday, Nov. 21 from 6-8 p.m. at the ACMC Fellowship Hall.
Twila Gordon with Soul Sisters said the holiday market provides Christmas shopping while supporting a local cause.
“We have a women’s group at our church that we call Soul Sisters, and we do the Holiday Market every year to help people in the community have a place to shop for hometown stuff,” Gordon said. “We also donate all of the money to Relay for Life.”
Gordon said the event is currently full up 23 vendors total.
Vendors will be selling various goods including personalized crafts and homemade goods.
“There are going to be burlap decorations for doors, Wickle’s Pickles, candles and jewelry – some of which will be handmade and some sterling silver,” Gordon said. “There will also be picture frames, hair ribbons, homemade goodies, Thirty One Handbags and Jeff Long Designs will have crosses and items they make.”
Gordon added the market will have gifts for all ages.
“It was originally designed so that some of our older church members would have a place buy family Christmas gifts, but it’s just grown from there,” Gordon said. “It’s a one-stop shop. You come out for two hours that night and cover all of your family needs.”
Gordon said Soul Sisters are always happy to support Relay for Life.
“Our church is a big supporter for Relay for Life, and our Soul Sisters group always has a team. Last year we donated more than $6,000 to Relay just from our small church group,” Gordon said. “This is just one of the ways we raise money.”
