Bazaar Crawl...

After doing the local community bazaar with my kids, I found myself wondering what it would be like to be a vendor at other bazaars. Before I could leap any further, I decided to go to a couple of bazaars and experience it from a shopper's perspective.
But of course, I needed a couple of bazaar-hopping friends to go with me! Here's me and a couple of my favorite girls and our daughters at the first bazaar of the day in Stevenson, WA.
Yeah, we had a girls morning! Loved it!
We got there at the beginning of the bazaar so there were lots of people and the energy was high, in fact "frenzy" might be the word to describe it. We had a lovely time browsing through the merchandise, there were loads of vendors, samples to taste, and goodies to buy. I picked up a few items; some rings, some pot scrubbers and Elena bought this pink hat. Oh, and I picked up a jar of rhubarb-orange jelly, it sounds so interesting, I can't believe I haven't tried it yet!

Bazaar # 2

After a fun filled morning, I came home, unloaded my goodies and tried to settle in for a nap. But, with the knowledge that there was another bazaar within 20 miles, I couldn't sit still, I had to go. So, I grabbed my canned goods and $2.00 (yep, canned goods and $2.00 is the price of admission) and headed to Mosier, Oregon. I had heard people rave about the Mosier Christmas Fair, but in the 12 years I've lived in the Gorge, I had never gone. Today was my day!

I walked in and was in awe, there were so many vendors and it was so quiet. Granted, I went late in the day, so the crowds were minimal, but it was just so quiet and peaceful! Ahh...
