All smiles at the bazaar

I'm so glad I took people photos at the New Neighbors holiday bazaar yesterday, because I love looking at their smiles now. These three lovely ladies are wearing my scarves that they bought, and the colors go perfectly on them!

I also got pictures of some of the vendors. Judy sat across from me with her beautiful knitwear. Her husband makes the wooden pen sets.

Al and his wonderful bird houses were on one side of me. (You may have seen his booth at the Gig Harbor Farmer's Market in Uptown and downtown.) After talking a bit between customers, we discovered that he went to the same university as my son in Colorado and that both of us are writers as well as artists. He also farmed for many years, which explains the barn birdhouse.

Pam of Pam's Pearls had a great idea for displaying her bracelets, using stretchy gloves that she stuffed. Fun and functional.

Here's my table, with necklace displays that I got at a store that was going out of business.

For the past two years I've added cards to my stock. I wait for Snapfish to have one of its "100 prints for $1" specials, then I order my nature and quilt photos to use on the cards.

I'm convinced that the bowls owe their popularity to their bright colors, which is something we all need more of in the Northwest in the fall and winter. Pam snapped up the blue and white bowl to give as a gift.
I resisted the call of the baked goods until the end, then I succumbed to a cranberry/orange/walnut loaf with a cheery red ribbon. It was a delicious way to end a good day.

Have a colorful day

Bazaar! I haven't heard that word in over 26 years, since we emigrated from South Africa. And it brings back such exciting memories ... A bazaar is called a 'fair' here in Australia. And what a wonderful bazaar you had! Your table looks amazing and your scarves are deliciously irresistibleness. Well done!
