well the bazaar has come and gone and it was a huge success! i’m so happy it all went off without a hitch. i saw how much work my parents put into it, let alone all the other members of the church who have been busy like santa’s elves making crafts for months.

here’s a few photos i took while setting up on the friday and then again at the bazaar on saturday.

can’t wait to see what they come up with next year!

goofing around with my little cousins emma and gracie.


i made letter templates for bunting banners for every booth. my mom and all her bazaar lady elves stitched them all together.

i scored this antique washboard from a man’s mother in new brunswick and these antlers from the vintage booth.

ornament hangers to jazz up your tree. i designed the packaging.

only one week to go until the big orleans bazaar which means my parents have me working away on all the last minute pieces they need to be designed- posters, price tags, extra signage, you name it, we’re on it!

below is a few of the pieces i’ve just completed. posters for volunteer recruitment, bazaar goals and additional booth signage. come out in person and see them all together!

grab a coffee & friend for some christmas shopping next weekend, november 16 from 9am-2pm at 1111 orleans boulevard for bits of baking, carefully crafted items, vintage finds and much more!

i think i will be personally offended if this event isn’t a big success (no pressure).
hope to see you there!

christmas is only 78 sleeps away, and only 5 more saturdays until the christmas marketplace bazaar at my parents church. this means my mom will be after me for plenty of help with the printed collateral until then! here’s a few things i’ve been working on.

1. advertising displays for the tv screens in the church
2. posters for each booth…. believe me, there’s plenty of these booths and plenty more for me to do
3. kitchen menus for the tables which will be displayed in the ikea tolsby frames.

stay tuned, lots more work for me to do!

remember, santa’s always watching!
