Kringle Shoppe, (in its sixth successful year, can you believe?), is returning to the quaint village of Applebachsville in 2009!

Once again our friends at Bucks County Latvian Church will host our event.

Located at 1142 Apple road in Applebachsville, the little country church offers an easily accessible hall and an ample paved parking lot.

The Latvian influence accents our Haycock Historical Society's fundraiser perfectly. Latvian ladies, dressed in traditional native costumes grace the hall while visitors are treated to Latvian holiday treats as well as a healthy sampling of the traditional holiday fare. The hall is transformed into a spectacular array of unique fine art, music, literature, sculpture, handwork, home décor and fabulous baked goods, ALL 100% made to sell by talented residents of Haycock and the contiguous townships.

Kringle Shoppe will be open:
Friday, December 4th,  1pm - 8pm
Saturday, December 5th, 10am – 4:30pm
Sunday, December 6th,    12:30 – 4:30pm

Haycock Historical Society Member, Greg Seifert of Mountain Pride Farm will offer Belgian Horse & Carriage rides, departing from the church and riding through the village of Applebachsville, on Saturday  11:00 AM to 2:00 PM and Sunday 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the days of the show.

Our exciting "Old Fashioned Christmas Shoppe" is created for those who want to experience the magic of getting or giving unique, hand- crafted gifts.   Haycock Historical Society highlights renown authors, artists and craftsmen who call the Haycock area their home.  Come visit and see for yourself.  Be serenaded by our talented local performers who bring the spirit of Christmas to life with continuous live holiday music.  Stop in at our hospitality center for a sweet treat and remember, every purchase helps Haycock Historical Society, but also helps our artist neighbors and friends.

 For the first time, Diabase Lodge's famous local artist and Haycock Historical Society member, Tom Kazary will be highlighted as Kringle's featured artist.  Tom will be opening his shop, Diabase Lodge in Applebachsville, at 860 Old Bethlehem Road, the weekend of Nov.21 & 22 for members to get a sneak peek at his "wonderful world behind the hedge" for you to experience an exclusive preview of this fantastic local treasure. The Diabase Lodge is a "must-see,"  you will walk away amazed.  Pieces from Tom's wacky, wonderful world will be available at Kringle.

 We'll also debut our 2009 collectors plate, made by the talented hands of ceramic artist, Loretta Belac.  This limited edition plate will feature the American Chestnut leaf.  Our historical link to the American Chestnut tree will be shared at the spring 2010 General meeting.

 This year's Haycock Historical Society calendar on sale at Kringle , will feature a "Scavenger Hunt" theme.  Each Haycock Historical Society member household will receive one calendar which is our gift to you.  Inside each calendar will be a postcard to guess the spot featured each month.  Submit your completed list of guesses on the special postcard. Mail it or bring it to the March Haycock Historical Society meeting.  Cards with correct responses will be entered into a drawing for several cash prizes that will be announced at the March meeting.  Calendars will be on sale at Kringle.  Remember, calendars make great gifts for out- of-state family.

The featured author at Kringle will be Pat DeWald and the newly published book, "Haycock Township and Eddie Bauer from 1930 - 1970" .  Pat and Eddie will sign books on Sunday, 12/6 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.

 Remember Kringle always welcomes volunteers and donations.  If you are interested in volunteering your time or donating items for our gift raffle, please contact Chris Handschin, (215) 536-0364
