candy bars—from mini to XL fine chocolates and candies that are packaged

Pretty much anything a kid likes. It can be large or small. We try to make several kid baskets each year, but don’t always have enough items to go far. Games, puzzles, Crayola, sport items, books, dolls, balls.
Perennials and bulbs: labeled with name and sun/shade. Bring these the Friday before Maifest so they are fresh. PLEASE let us know what you are bringing ahead of time, so we are able to make sure we have spots for them throughout the auction tables. These are always bid on, and do quite well!
GERMAN, AUSTRIAN or SWISS ITEMS
Anything in good condition can be used. Bavarian clothing is also accepted.
