Holiday Bazaar

I had such a blast hosting my Holiday Bazaar this weekend at my home.  We had picture perfect fall weather for the event, and I was able to catch up with old friends and meet new ones as people browsed and shopped my selection of vintage holiday items and homebaked treats.  I often miss having a retail store, and I love merchandising, so I was tickled to be able dream up this event.  A very big thank you to everyone who attended and enjoyed the Bazaar, and a flurry of Bazaar photos for those of you who could not attend.

It really was a festive and fun day for me, and I will be sharing details about baking and projects that I did for the bazaar, as well as lots more ideas for the holiday season.

  4. Christine,
    Wonderful photos....Were those blue lamps on your sofa table for sale?

  5. Thanks-wish you could have been here!
    Blue lamps were not for sale....because it was in our home, most of the "backdrop" items were not for sale.
