Record Observer - - News -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Hol­i­day shop­ping re­turned once again to Cen­tre­ville with the an­nual Heck with the Malls lo­cal ar­ti­sans sale co­or­di­nated by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Coun­cil and St. Paul’s Epis­co­pal Church.

Pleas­ant weather made for happy shop­pers on Dec. 3 when the event was held down­town in Cen­tre­ville at the Queen Anne’s County Cen­tre for the Arts, St. Paul’s Epis­co­pal Church, Our Mother of Sor­rows Catholic Church. Fine art work and unique hand crafted items were avail­able for sale at each lo­ca­tion.

The Chicken Coop Cafe’ up­stairs at St. Paul’s boasted lines of happy cus­tomers wait­ing for the Epis­co­pal women’s fa­mous chicken salad, avail­able in pints or sold on sand­wiches for shop­pers on the go. At Our Mother of Sor­rows, shop­pers browsed craft ven­dors and the White Ele­phant Room, while the lit­tle ones had the chance to visit with Santa and do some se­cret Santa shop­ping of their own for moms and dads. Church vol­un­teers also as­sisted in the wrap­ping of gifts, which seemed to take the chil­dren even longer than pick­ing out the right gift.

Lo­cal busi­nesses Ed­wards Phar­macy, Serendipidee, the Com­merce Street Cream­ery and An Eastridge Gar­den also par­tic­i­pated with spe­cial sales for the oc­ca­sion.
