What is the Emporium?
It is a wonderful two-day shopping extravaganza sponsored annually by the Women's Ministry at First Baptist. Over 65 vendors fill the church Banquet Hall with a variety of booths featuring hard-to-find items, gifts of all kinds, and other treasures. In past years, merchandise has included furniture, jewelry, handbags, clothing, holiday decor and gifts, children's books and toys, and home decor items as well as original artwork and garden items.
This year's Emporium will be held on Friday, September 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 28 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.. The location is the banquet hall behind First Baptist Church at 751 Green Street NW, Gainesville, Georgia 30501.
Tickets are $5 per shopper, and children 10 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the church office or at the door the day of the event.
