    Located on Georgia Highway 19 between Lumber City and Glenwood, the historic church was founded in 1805. Tours of the current church building, dedicated in 1886, and the adjacent cemetery will be offered during the bazaar. Costumed interpreters will relate the church history, as well as details about some of the people who attended the church during the 19th and early 20th century. In the cemetery, several of the persons buried at Shiloh will be profiled by interpreters. The tours are free.

Bazaar-goers can shop the clothing boutique which will offer shoes, handbags, jewelry, and a wide variety of clothing in a range of sizes. A dressing room with mirror will be provided, and boutique assistants will be on hand to help with choosing the right outfit. A toy shop will feature children’s clothing and toys.

    Beneath tents outside, shoppers can peruse the Bargain Barn which will offer great deals on a variety of items. Homemade baked goods, including candies, cakes, breads, jams, jellies, salsa and locally-made sugar cane syrup will be on sale.

    Plants will be available for sale and a highlight of the event will be a presentation by Merv Greenberg, bonsai expert.
