A sure sign of Christmas on the Outer Banks is the return of Holly Days at All Saints Episcopal Church in Southern Shores.

This year marks the 16th anniversary of the popular holiday event where one can discover unique, locally-made products for your home or your Christmas shopping list.

The bazaar and more is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

According to organizers David and Sandy Briggman, 65 applicants vied for 37 spaces, one indication of Holly Day’s appeal.

As always, the vendor lists include handmade jewelry, pottery, original photography, painting, fabric, and yarn creations, wooden art, painted glassware, Christmas decorations, ‘Second Sail’ jewels, frozen casseroles from the North Pole Shop, the Gourmet Bake Shop, silent auction, raffle items, a sandwich/lunch shop and more.

Friday’s lunch special will be the famous Holly Days Chicken Salad, while barbecue will be the main course on Saturday. The cafe will be open from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. both days.

Old favorites such as artist James Melvin and photographer and Yellow House Gallery owner Eve Turek will be back along with newcomers such as Brad Price (oil painting, oil cloths), Corissa Snyder (Surfer & The Sea), and Julia Bancroft (Opus Stone Concrete).

On Saturday, Beach 104’s Jody O’Donnell will be broadcasting live on-site.

Many items, including the casseroles, Tess Judge’s Christmas popcorn, and the Second Sail jewels sell out quickly in the opening hours on Friday, so if you have designs on any of those products it’s best to be there before the doors open on the 16th.
