Shoppers waded through booths stocked with holiday crafts, quilts, books, apple butter and homemade pie during the sale’s first day of operation.
Luella Unruh, advertising chair, said the sale is a fundraiser for the relief program the Mennonite Church is involved in.
Friday evening there was a smoked-pork-loin dinner, a church music group performed and quilts and crafts were auctioned off to the highest bidders. There will be a $5 pancake and sausage breakfast 7-9:30 a.m. today. All booths open at 8 a.m. Craft and quilt auctions begin at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., respectively, and at noon, the People’s Choice Quilt will be auctioned.
Ten Thousand Villages has been a longtime participant in the Mennonite sale.
