The Halloween spooks and specters have barely faded away and many eager shoppers are now thinking toward the holiday season and the perfect gifts for those on their shopping lists.
Kicking off the holiday shopping season is the fourth annual Christmas Shopping Bazaar and Shop Local event by The Lodge at Mallard’s Landing, held Friday (Nov. 4) and Saturday (Nov. 5) for the Gig Harbor community and Lodge residents alike.
More than 15 local artists and venders selling everything from LuLaRoe clothing to ornaments and artwork with be featured at the bazaar, said Venetia Dela Cruz, the lodge’s activities director.
We usually have another bazaar in the spring but it’s not as popular as the Christmas Bazaar. Our main goal is that our residents can celebrate with our community.

“We usually have another bazaar in the spring but it’s not as popular as the Christmas Bazaar,” she said. “Our main goal is that our residents can celebrate with our community.”
Though many residents choose to visit family during the holidays, Dela Cruz said the staff organizes other events for those residents who stick around for the holidays, which includes movies and holiday gift baskets. Inviting the Gig Harbor community into the facility to shop alongside the residents is another way for individuals to connect and spread some holiday spirit.
“We’re doing a lot of events here that get our residents involved in the community,” Dela Cruz said.
