A fine Bazaar

For a couple of weeks I have passed the demure sign on the left,
announcing the Community Christmas Bazaar
to be held today, at our town hall.


Laura and I were there when it opened.
Our new road super had a hand in this.
Isn't he something.


We passed him in the hall, whistling while he worked.


There were more vendors this year,
everywhere we looked.


This is the township administration office,
converted for the day.
Someone you know is considering.


I bought ringing bells for our front door knob,


some more ornaments,


a Christmas sheep.
 I think Toby finds him extra interesting, so he's hanging with the stockings.


And some soap.

  4. I love bazaars, but haven't been to one in a long time. I like the Christmas sheep and the door bells.

  5. I love how hand milled soaps look, but I just can't handle the scent. Good choice with the bells for the door knob. I like the jingle, which for us would happen every time we have to let the cat in or out. -Jenn

  6. This is just the kind of sale I love, too! Toby probably thinks that's the thing you bought for HIM. Are you saying it isn't?

    But you seem to have come away with some good buys.

  11. I hope the leak has finally been fixed and you don't have any more trouble with a wet floor. You are a survivor! And those Christmas ornaments you bought are pretty.

  14. I enjoy the bells at the holidays. I gave my baby granddaughter, Penny Lane, a set of bells this weekend and she rang them relentlessly. All I had to do was start singing Jingle Bell Rock and she started ringing them.

  19. It is lovely to see a community bazaar well attended. It is not only about the things you can buy, but the people you can see.

  22. Joanne
    Jesus Judas Priest. (Excuse the exclamation our fathers and uncles used). Just how in hell do you do it?? The parenting, I mean. I see my Grands, the oldest nearing 19, the youngest of my daughters just turned 30. I can't imagine.
    I know you are not the only one, etc, etc. You're just the only one I know.
    Health issues aside, I'm not sure I could do what you do, day to day. The cardiac issues exclude me, and the age of the youngest, 6, but still.
    You have my admiration, and sympathy.

  24. I like Christmas bazaars. Quite often find things there that I like, although sometimes I wonder why certain things ever got made. :)

  25. they have a similar event here in the civic center but I never go because they charge an entrance fee. but when I do go to things like thins I always buy a bar or two of soap. I don't think I've bought store soap in 10 years.

  26. Joanne - my admiration for you has grown daily.
