Members of Wednesdays for Women, a networking group of local women who meet at Hamilton’s Grill Room twice each month to share their expertise on business, health care and the arts, will hold their first holiday bazaar December 7 from noon to 7 pm at the Lambertville restaurant. Hamilton’s will be transformed into a marketplace for some of the area’s best artists and artisans for this show, which is open to the public.
It’s a holiday shopper’s delight: area artisans’ handcrafted jewelry, scarves, ceramics, chocolates, artwork, baked goods and local fruit baskets, plus the chance to relax and dine afterward at a holiday buffet at one of the area’s finest restaurants.
After the show ends at 7 pm the rooms will be returned to a dining area in time for Executive Chef Mark Miller’s holiday buffet. Shoppers can follow up their gift purchases with a gift for themselves: his prix fixe $30 meal. The buffet table will include White Bean Salad, Roasted Beets Vinaigrette, String Beans Vinaigrette, Olive Oil marinated White Anchovies, Deviled Eggs, Roasted Red Peppers with Mozzarella, Mushroom Soup and more. The main features will be Aunt Jemima’s Baked Ham with Maple Glaze, Roast Breast of Turkey with Gravy, Grilled Marinated Winter Vegetables, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, artisan breads, dessert selections plus coffee or tea.
Selling jewelry at the show will be Jane Wesby (River Queen Artisans), Diana Contine (Dakota Moon) , Holly Bauer , Jackie Ker Tuile, Joan Rosetsky and Catherine Mauger. Stephanie Smith will offer scarves while Illia Barger, Virginia Sigety and Maggie Beesley will sell clothing. Handbags will be represented by Ginny Burke-Preston and artwork by Annelies Van Dommelen and Susan Rovello. Shiela Coutin will display her ceramics while Karen Caldwell will offer her stained glass. Beauty products will be offered by Elaine Marigliano and Sandy Rowshan, with handmade chocolates by Laurie Douglass of Laurie’s Chocolates. Baked goods will be sold by Laura Arnold and fruit baskets by Amy Manoff of Manoff Market Gardens.
The holiday buffet is $30 per person plus tax and gratutity. Call 609.397.4343 for more information.
