Our sixth annual Holiday Bazaar and Craft Sale Fund Raiser inside the GiftsToGive Philanthropy Factory.

Door Prizes, Chinese Auction (every vendor represented), gourmet baked goods, food, Showstoppers and the most interesting volunteer management staff in the world!

Our Magical Thrift Store is open 9-3.

We want to honor and celebrate local artisans! Holiday items, gifts, art,  jewelry, candy, wood workers and more. As is our policy; we have limited tables to one (1) branded space or consultant, per product category; such as Avon, Pampered Chef, Tupperware etc. We are focused on local artisans.

We hope to see you.

What do Charlie, Jasper, Mike and Clay have in common?

Bed bugs!

Yes, you read that correctly! It’s not the prettiest or nicest topic to discuss. It is actually a nightmare. But when you process and handle tons of clothing and other items, it is a very serious issue. What to do? Knowing who your donors are is helpful, but then one never can be 100% sure. We’re proud and pleased to announce that we remain and are indeed, bed bug free. A bold statement to be sure, but a truthful statement. Let us tell you why.

Acushnet honey bees.

What does a Apponequet Junior, a New Bedford Fifth Grader and a Mattapoisett Grandfather have in common? Acushnet honey bees of course!

Head Gardener and Chief Bee Keeper, Bill O”Keefe, is teaching Rosie and Sofia all about honey bees. How good is that? (Other photos HERE)

We are in our fifth season of growing organic vegetables and beekeeping. If you want to help us with our outdoor vegetable garden, drop-in and let us know!
