During the three-day weekend following Thanksgiving, Blue Star Bazaar will donate 10-percent of all sales to the Wilton Community Assistance Fund. The Fund is coordinated through the Wilton Department of Social Services. Blue Star Bazaar’s contributions will be used specifically to purchase American Express gift cards for children on Social Services’ holiday gift list.

“Black Friday shopping has become a hectic frenzy of early wake-up calls and long lines for low prices. I wanted to do something to kick off holiday shopping that focused on the spirit of the season and an emphasis on quality rather than quantity,” explained Blue Star Bazaar’s owner, Megan Abrahamsen.

Customers can shop at Blue Star Bazaar’s Wilton location (148 Danbury Road) to find holiday gifts for adults and children. Top gifts for adults include jewelry, watches, handbags, scarves, and picture frames. For children, top picks include vintage inspired toys, winter pajamas, boys’ neckties, girls’ dresses, and picture books. Shoppers can enjoy complimentary coffee, cider, hot chocolate, and sweet treats throughout the weekend.

Holiday hours are as follows:

Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Sunday  noon to 5 p.m.
Monday, December 23  10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
