Selling on Ebay begins a week containing the opening of 2 live theater performances. One is a beloved comedy and the other a new drama. There is s lecture at the Mahwah Library tonight about the history of Palisades Amusement Park. Because of Covid, seats are limited to 25 so I’m not sure any are still available. You can use the link here to find out.
Remote has taken over our world. Zoom, phone shopping, Facetime or Duo are how it is. We forget that there’s a lot happening in our local libraries as a result. Look for a future blog post on this.
Now let’s see what’s happening this week
Selling On Ebay – Tuesday Night
Englewood has a wonderful, active public library. They’re hosting Selling on Ebay Tuesday night from 7-8 pm. This is a Zoom presentation and you must register in advance. Rick Feingold will teach you everything you need to know. It doesn’t matter if you want to sell a few items or if you’re very experienced. I’m sure you’ll learn a lot.
Bergen County Historical Society – Wednesday Night
Here’s another Zoom event. The Bergen County Historical Society has a very interesting talk by Steven Elliott about life in General George Washington’s army. It’s more than just how they survived the harsh winter weather. Mr. Elliott goes into the logistical issues they had to solve to keep the army going. Gen. Washington had several encampments to deal with. This fascinating lecture is from 7-8:15 pm. Like all Zoom meetings, you must register in advance.

Holiday Harvest Craft Fair – Saturday
Saturday is the date for the annual holiday craft fair at the First Reformed Church of Hasbrouck Heights (300 Washington Pl). This is a traditional holiday Church fair that attracts a lot of people because of what it has to offer. There will be 2 floors of crafts on display and for sale. Additionally there will be lots of other items and activities. This is kid friendly too. Admission is $4 for adults, $2 seniors and free for 16 and younger. This fair is from 9 to 3.
Holiday Boutique in Franklin Lakes – Sunday
Come to a simply amazing holiday boutique at Barnert Temple in Franklin Lakes. Located at 747 Route 208 South it’s very easy to get to. They have a terrific selection of items for sale. This year it’s being held outdoors because of Covid. Everything outdoors is safer of course. Barnert is located at 747 Route 208 South. Did you know that Barnert is the oldest Jewish Synagogue in New Jersey
Tenafly Nature Scavenger Hunt – Saturday and Sunday
It’s that time of year again. The scavenger hunt is on this weekend at the Tenafly Nature Center. This annual event is so much fun. Weather is going to be ideal for this outdoor event too. Registration is open, there are plenty of spaces left because they can accommodate a lot. Don’t wait however. This is a VERY popular event but not for the youngest of children. While they say 4 and above, as a Mom I’d think a bit older works best. Get yourself registered, enjoy being outdoors and have a blast!
This is what I have for you this week. If there is anything I’ve missed, please contact me ASAP so I can add it. Don’t forget that I send out my next market post on Wednesday so stay tuned. AND if there’s anything specific you want me to write about, let me know.
