Pattaya International Ladies Club launched into the festive season with the annual Christmas Bazaar on Sunday 22 November. With just over 30 shopping days left until Christmas, the Holiday Inn was thronged with hundreds of shoppers eager to find perfect gifts for family and friends.
With 60 stalls to choose from, selling everything from jewelry, clothing and accessories to festive decorations and home decor, there was certainly a wonderful array of ‘must-have’ items! The Bazaar was also a foodie’s paradise, with several purveyors of gourmet treats showcasing their wares. As well as special selections including French cheese, smoked salmon and tapas, traditionalists were pleased to find delicious mince pies!
Young shoppers had the opportunity to visit Santa in his Grotto or have fun playing in Hand to Hand’s activity area, and any shoppers feeling a bit frazzled could relax with a foot massage soothingly provided by the Fountain of Life Women’s Centre.
PILC has been organizing a Christmas Bazaar for many years and it is the Club’s major fundraiser, enabling it to continue with welfare projects in local communities. The raffle – with more than 40 prizes – was generously supported. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. The Club would like to thank everyone who supported the Bazaar and helped make it another great success. “Merry Christmas to all our members, friends and supporters; we wish you all a safe and joyful Christmas and New Year.”
