Library registration is open for Christmas Market



PHILIPSBURG – The Philipsburg Jubilee Library (PJL) will host its annual Christmas Market on Thursday, December 22, from 10:00 am to 8:00pm.

The Library’s annual Christmas Market hosts crafters from all over St. Maarten displaying their arts and creativity. Shoppers can shop for one-of-a kind gifts, and decorations. This year is promised like previous years to be a community event.  Also, the familiar aroma of Christmas baking will be throughout the library.

Individually decorated stands will offer handcrafted goods and Christmas jewelry. “In order to make this event a success we would like to invite all interested persons to come out and register to be part of this phenomenon,” a release said.

Persons who would like to display or sell their arts and crafts, basket, liqueurs, and cakes should register by December 9. Registration fee is $28.25 or NAf 50. However, there is no fee for visitors to the market. Space is limited, as only 20 tables are available.
