Discover unique holiday treasures Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 at the St. George’s second annual Canterbury Christmas Sale held in “Ralph Hall” at St. George’s-by-the-River Episcopal Church in Rumson.

Fans of the annual Canterbury Fair know there are plenty of great finds to be had. This unique event is a Christmas-themed rummage sale featuring some dandy new and gently used Christmas indoor and outdoor decorations at remarkable prices. Items have been donated by members of the church, their friends and families. This year’s event chairs – Jill Gemmel, Daren Hutchinson and Kathy Welch – promise a wide variety of items to spruce up your holiday décor and great gift items as well.
