Lincolnville Center — The United Christian Church (UCC) will sponsor the Holiday Antique and Gift Show  Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Community Building located next to the church at 18 Searsmont Road (Route 173).

The show will feature local antique dealers and crafters with a wide selection of unique and affordable products, including hand-spun, hand-knit socks; vintage holiday decorations; Victorian gift boxes; Christmas ornaments galore; jams, relish, and cranberry chutney; and an assortment of baked goods.

To help shoppers prepare their homes for the holidays, there will also be a selection of houseplants, evergreen centerpieces and balsam wreaths sold by Lincolnville PTO. Church members will offer a variety of gift items, featuring Barbara Bentley's creative transformation of recycled birdseed and grain bags into aprons and stylish shoulder bags.

Santa and Mrs. Claus figures, 3 feet tall, created in 1990 by Nancy Rankin of Camden, have been donated to be sold. Enjoyed by one family for two generations, the pair are now ready to charm a new family.

Refreshments include breakfast and lunch, as well as baked goods and beverages.

Shoppers are invited to come and find unusual gifts, enjoy home-baked treats and a cup of coffee, and visit with friends, all while helping to support the upkeep of Town Meetinghouse, home of the United Christian Church, built in 1821.

This event is one of two major fundraisers the church sponsors annually. The other is the Strawberry Festival held in July.

Event organizers have been pleased with comments from shoppers about the welcoming atmosphere and the wonderful assortment of products. A coastal customer said, "This show is such a wonderful surprise and just a short, beautiful drive from town!" All are welcome. There is no admission fee.

The Community Building is handicapped-accessible with ample parking. For further information, call 785-3521.
