Kringle Christmas Shoppe

Haycock Township Community Center ~1014 Old Bethlehem Rd in Applebachsville

 
 

Welcome to the New Kringle!  - Bigger and better than ever!
All those features that made Kringle GREAT were carefully preserved at our new location at the Haycock Township Community Center.  Visitors will be able to select from dozens of fabulous pieces of regionally generated juried fine art and handwork as local volunteer musicians serenade the crowds.  We are proud of our talented participants and know you will love them too.  All treasures great and small for the holidays can also be found at Kringle, including consumables: jellies, jams, pie fillings, spreads, breads, candy and other delicious baked confections. 
Music Café’
How could Kringle get any better, you ask?  Our local Haycock Fire Company will be serving delicious quick lunches all three days of the event.  Guests can grab a sandwich and/or soup and “sit a spell” to listen to our talented musical line-up, or, after a long day of shopping and visiting with our friendly staff, take a sandwich home to enjoy later.  Food sales benefit Haycock Fire Company.
Free Sweet Treats
As always, complimentary coffee, cocoa and sweet treats are there for our shoppers, lovingly made by Haycock Historical Society members--our way to say thanks for helping us reach our fundraising goals!
Great Raffle Prizes
Remember those RAFFLE BASKETS and GIFT WREATHS!  The list of businesses and vendors who have contributed is phenomenal this year!  Each basket or wreath is worth hundreds of dollars in gifts and certificates.  Only one lucky dollar is all it takes to win. Prize winners are drawn at the end of the show.
A Taste Of Latvia
Our Latvian friends will be joining us at the new building.  If you had a craving for that wonderful Latvian Sauerkraut, you are in luck. It will be for sale in the lobby along with the beautiful updated Baltic Amber jewelry this region is so famous for.  Proceeds for these will help the Latvian church and community.
Demonstrators and Book Signers
We are adding a wonderful new twist this year!  Some of our participants have offered to give demonstrations.  You will be able to meet them and see the process that goes into their lovely handwork.--  both informative and entertaining!  
Authors, Robert Leight and Thomas Moll will be on hand for book signings and to talk about the making of their latest book on the history of the Quakertown School system.
Author Mary Shafer will bring Iggy, one of the main characters in a book she co-wrote about disabled pets and the people who love them.  Blind from birth -- kitty, Iggy is truly as remarkable as Ms Shafer, who wrote about her.
