Misericordia’s Christmas pop-up shop returns to Beverly Arts Center

From staff reports

During the weekend before Thanksgiving, South Siders can shop early for Christmas treats or add something special to the Thanksgiving feast thanks to 19th Ward Alderman Matt O’Shea, who is hosting Misericordia’s Christmas pop-up shop at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St. in Chicago.

This year, women in St. Cajetan Parish are volunteering to assist with sales. Hours at Beverly Arts Center are Friday, November 19, from noon until 5 p.m.; Saturday, November 20, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.; and Sunday, November 21, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more information, call 773-238-8766.

Baked goods and other treats made by more than 80 residents include Misericordia’s Hearts & Flour Bakery signature Brownie Hearts, plus a variety of breads (including the ever-popular Irish Soda), fudge and peppermint bark, toffee, caramel and Cajun crunch, pretzel trees and spiced pecans. In addition, boxes of Christmas cards featuring artwork by residents are available.
