Heart & Hands Emporium
“Changing the world one purchase at a time” is the tagline for the Heart & Hands Emporium, one of the biggest and most exciting events in the life of the First Baptist Women’s Ministry. In the first seven years of the Emporium, the women of the church have been able to raise and donate over $100,000 to very deserving organizations in our community and beyond. The show generates funds through booth rentals as well as ticket and bakery sales. Vendors pay from $150 to $200 for their space but get to keep all their profits.
How can you get involved in such a wonderful event? Volunteer your time the weekend of the event to sell tickets, hand out shopping bags, or give vendors a restroom break. What else can you do to make the show a success? Well, the tagline says it all. “Changing the world one purchase at a time.” Who could think of a better excuse for shopping!
The Emporium will be held on Friday, October 12th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and on Saturday, October 13th from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. The location is the banquet hall behind the First Baptist Church on Green Street in Gainesville, GA.
Tickets are $5 per shopper, children under 16 are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the church office or at the door the day of the event.
