Check out the Limoges china tea sets. The variety of gifts available will amaze you – beautiful quilts made by our members, crocheted afghans, jewelry, unique ornaments, seasonal décor, knitted baby caps, framed art, fairy garden, folk art, toys and even something for your furry friend. One craft area will be items especially of interest to children. We will also offer some craft kits for your purchase and enjoyment at home.
We want you to know that the dollars you spend will go directly to support mission projects around the community, annually selected by our Southminster Presbyterian Women. Southminster Presbyterian is a church with its eye and heart on needs of people within our own area and we respond by reaching out with financial support and volunteer service.
