This year our Holiday Bazaar will once again be held at the same spacious, elegant venue as the past few years, the Hotel Intercontinental on Paseo de la Castellana 49 (near Metro Gregorio Marañón). From noon-7 pm. on Sunday, November 22nd, our guests will enjoy homemade American baked goods and foods, bar service, a visit and/or photo with Santa, a Bring and Buy table with mint-condition clothing and accessories, a huge book sale table with works in different languages, over 60 vendors selling handicrafts and decorative items, all-day-long tombola and raffle prize drawings, live entertainment, and a festive environment to help all get into the holiday spirit.
In the attachment you will find Bazaar posters in English and Spanish. Please print them up and post them at your school, office, community center, church, etc. Questions about the Bazaar can be directed either to the AWC FB page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/awcmadrid or to the Club phones at 91-457-1108 or 636 863 923 from 10-4 on weekdays.

Our October Bring and Buy Sale will be held on Monday, October 19th from 10,30 a.m.- 2 p.m. It will be an All Donations 50% Off All Marked Prices Sale and will be our last spring/summer season sale until spring 2016. We´d like to move all our summer merchandise out to make room for winter items. So take advantage to clean out your wardrobes and bring in your donations of gently worn spring/summer clothing as well as shoes, handbags, household gadgets and linens, toys, accessories, etc. You can bring your donations to the Club any day from 10-4, including the Sales Day itself. We´ll be setting up for the October Sale on Thursday and Friday, October 15th and 16th and would appreciate all available help for pricing and displaying our merchandise. We´d also be thankful for your help on the Sales Day (10,30-2) and for Clean Up (2,00 p.m. - 5 p.m.) We´ll need people to tidy up merchandise, to help bag purchases, and to keep things running smoothly. After the Sale we’ll be preparing charity bags with all summer clothing that is left over. Tell your friends about the sale and drop in yourself to see how our Clubhouse turns into a mini-department store one Monday a month!!
