Ms Stewart said residents eagerly aniticpate the annual event and will be ready to snap up their favourite items.
"We will have our usual range of hand-towels, knitted and lace hangers with pomanders, knitted teddies, patchwork carry bags, gorgeous crochet rugs and beautiful quilted baby rugs,” she said.
"The food items include preserves such as beetroot and bread and butter cucumbers as well as cakes and slices.”
CWA Lismore president Jan Clifford OAM said even if it's sprinkling, members will be there to sell their goods.
"We will have plants, cakes and handicrafts and a bit of white elephant stuff,” she said.
"If it rains heavily we will hold the bazaar in the CWA rooms behind the croquet club and the fire station at Spinks Park.”
Ms Clifford said the monies raised will go towards supporting the local community.
"We have just made out annual donations to the school prizes and international donations to help the third work countries so the money here will go back into the local community
