Anna and Don Preston want to be known as “Englewood's Mrs. Claus and Mr. Claus.” Every year, the two Englewood residents help purchase gifts for more than 100 children in the Denver metro area.

“We say, 'Suck it up, we're going to bring Christmas to the kids,'" said Don.

The couple was at the Malley Senior Recreation Center in Englewood on Nov. 2 for the city's 40th annual Holiday Bazaar. Residents could take their children to meet Santa, get a head start on their holiday shopping, eat and interact with neighbors around the area.

“It feels a little bit like Christmas around here. This is a fantastic way to get the holiday season rolling,” said Miguel Trujillo, a Denver resident.

There were dozens of choices for residents to purchase, including jewelry, clothing, dog treats, pillows, holiday decorations and more.

Englewood resident Bonnie Woldruff has lived in the city since 1961. She was at the bazaar to sell quilts she made herself. Woldruff has been a vendor at the bazaar for the past five years.

“There's a lot of participants and a great variety. I feel like it's a community event,” said Woldruff. “We're just fortunate that the snow was at the beginning of the week and not toward the weekend.”
