More than 100 International Women’s Club (IWC) of Mexico members and friends got an early start on their holiday shopping on Wednesday, Nov. 16, during the IWC’s annual Christmas bazaar at Union Church.
With nearly 50 stands selling handcrafted decorations, artisan gifts and traditional holiday favorites, there were plenty of items to choose from, as well as a tasty selection of homemade marmalades, bakery sweets, imported cheese and mulled wine.
“This bazaar is a great way to showcase some of the IWC’s sponsors and local artisans while allowing our members — many of whom are new to Mexico — to discover and purchase wonderful locally produced wares,” explained IWC vice president Judy Kim, who oversaw the organization of the event.
Founded in 1977 as the Newcomers Club, the IWC is a nonprofit social and service organization made up of mostly foreigners living in Mexico.
