“There is so much to be said about living in a small community; true and old traditions of Christmas still exist. The Christmas Bazaar reinforces our community traditions of caring and giving. Holiday spirit is evident throughout the day, the sound of laughter rings throughout the building as old friendships are renewed and wonderful visits take place”. The description of the annual Christmas Bazaar comes from Christmas Bazaar coordinator, Donna Hansen who is happy to announce that this years’ Christmas Bazaar will take place on Saturday, December 2 and will be “full to the brim”. Those planning to attend the bazaar can expect to see a whopping fifty vendors with items ranging from alpaca fibers, pottery, fresh wreaths, primitives, Usborne books, and homemade ornaments; adds Hansen, “A new unique booth is Sweet and Sassy from Edgemont. A home based business of very tasty frozen meals prepared from scratch. Another unique vendor will be offering gluten free products”. Known to have something for everyone—and then some— Hansen is happy to report that most all of the vendors who applied were able to be worked into the event with a small waiting list should anyone not be able to make it. The bazaar will kick off at 9:00am in the main building at the fairgrounds and will run until 3:00pm. “The Cloverleaf 4H Club will be offering food through the day. They will be serving chili as well as a baked potato bar. They will also have their yummy caramel puff corn” states Hansen. Throughout the day, door prizes will also be given. “My two favorite things about the bazaar would be seeing old friends and also seeing all the products the vendors have to offer” comments Hansen. Adding to the list above, shoppers can also look forward to homemade cookies and candies, jewelries, wooden signs, custom t-shirts, Young Living Oils, Lemon Grass Spa Products, and so much more. “I hope the bazaar gives our community a place to shop for fun and unique items. I also hope it helps Niobrara County residents who are vendors make a little extra income. The bazaar is a great place for visiting and getting in the holiday spirit”.
