Have you ever wanted to host a Tupperware, Mary Kay or Pampered Chef party but haven’t had the time?

A new event at the Abington Community Library is geared toward the person who wants to host an at home party but who may be experiencing a lack of hours in the day.

The At Home Party Marketplace will be held on Saturday, April 12, at the library, 1200 W. Grove St., Clarks Summit, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers say that the event celebrates both National Financial Liberacy month as well as the Pennsylvania Library Association’s PA Forward initiative all while bringing the party to the public.

“We wanted to highlight independent sellers because, more often than not, it is not their sole income, it is their supplemental income,” said assistant director Sandy Longo. “We wanted to highlight the members of the community who do that and who contribute to the community in that way.”

The marketplace will feature 13 vendors with an assortment of products that will be available for purchase. For customers wishing to order, the library will serve as a pick up point.

“We want to take the pressure off of people so they don’t feel that they have to give a party,” Longo said. “The at-home parties are fun, but we wanted to bring people together to highlight the products. They are all sold by people in the community who are library users every day. With people’s time schedules, between work, school, families and other things, you don’t necessarily always have time.”
