Well, the St. Agatha Bazaar was a great success. I feel extremely lucky to be able to participate in it every year. In fact, this was the twelfth year that my daughter and I have been involved. Every year we have a great time, and every year we meet a bunch of new people. I think that’s why I like to do it so much.
The Bazaar started at 9am on Saturday morning. This is what our table looked like at that time. I think it took me a couple of hours to unload everything and get it set up the way I liked it. Here’s a photo of me and my daughter on Sunday.
Here’s a picture of some friends that do the Bazaar with us every year. It’s always nice to have someone to talk to, and to watch your booth when you need to take a break.
This is another friend of mine. She does beautiful things with paper. I just love the books she makes. They are so beautiful. She also makes beautiful cards using a variety of techiques.
This is someone new I met this year. We hit it off right away. I really loved the little mirrors she was selling.
Brian is an excellent chef. He and his wife, Lisa, who is also a chef, do a lot of cooking at St. Agatha events. It’s always scrumptious! Lisa makes all the food for the Bazaar. Just ask anyone there and they’ll tell you how wonderful it all is.
Marie is selling the baked and preserved goodies that the Altar Society members produce for the Bazaar every year.
These three lovelies are selling plant starts. I’ve bought a few from them over the years, because I love house plants. They sometimes have dried flowers too. Anyway, they’re very nice and inexpensive.
This young woman was selling, among other things, some handmade Marshmallow Shooters. I had to buy one for my nephew!
This lady makes beautiful jewelry. Unfortunately, I did not ask her what her name was! Bad Kay!!!!
Rikki also make beautiful jewelry. She makes necklace and earring sets.
This lovely lady has been with the Bazaar for several years now. She makes a lot of different things, but the thing I liked the best this year was her little Bunny Family that lived in a giant carrot! It was too cute! You can just barely see it on the little shelf way off to the right side of the table.
Geri makes table runners, blankets, scarves, scrubbies, you name it! She has a little friend helping her right now.
There were a lot of other tables there at our little Bazaar. I think I’ve showed you a pretty good representation of all that was there. I hope, after you see this post, that next November you’ll plan to come and see it in person. The things I didn’t photograph were the cute little Cafe with all the delicous food prepared by Lisa Quinn, and a little thrift store that is run by our own little Thrifty Cottage. It’s a thrift store whose proceeds go directly to help fund programs at St. Agatha School and Church. I’ll try to get photos of them at the next Bazaar.
