Crafts, fruit, flowers tempt holiday shoppers Parents group, bank plan sales NORTH COUNTY



We don't know about the rest of you, but somehow it feels as if September and October must have dropped a couple of days. November is here, and we're still debating about getting out our winter clothes.

Our kids are constantly reminding us how many days there are until Christmas (46 days in case your children have slipped up), and friends are telling us that they have finished their Christmas shopping.

Guess it's time to get in the Christmas spirit and start our yuletide shopping now.


What better way to start than to attend the "Beary" Christmas craft bazaar, sponsored by the North County High School Parents Club, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday at North County High School on Andover Road.

More than 40 crafts people will be displaying their merchandise, all in one convenient shopping area. The Parents Club will be selling hot dogs, chicken salad, soup, baked goods and more. Come out and browse, have lunch and enjoy the day.

* If crafts aren't what you have in mind for presents, maybe fruit and flowers are.

The North County PTSA, Band and Band Front are selling navel oranges, grapefruits and poinsettias. Oranges are $17 for a 40-pound box, grapefruit are $16 for a 40-pound box and a mixed box of both costs $16.50.

Poinsettias range from a single bloom costing $6 to a full hanging plant costing $22. Delivery for all items will be mid-December. If you are interested, contact a member of the band or PTA, or call the school at 859-5400.
